Documentary that began as a search for unridden waves evolved into a human rights piece to help save a dying culture. Help our movement
Thanks so much for taking the time to click on this page to learn more about ISOLATED!! PLEASE HELP US FINISH THIS FILM!!
This documentary film has been a passion of mine for over 6 years now. And in addition to myself, a group of incredibly talented people have put their heart and soul into helping create this film. Isolated began as a feral surf film about finding the world's last undiscovered world class waves, but evolved into something so much more important. During filming we stumbled across first hand accounts from the locals who had experienced rape, torture, and murder - all because of a land dispute that began in the 1960's. Where we traveled to in New Guinea is a 'journalist dead zone', which means you're not allowed to go there if you're a journalist or want to film. But since we were a bunch of surfers they let us in. None of us had ever traveled to the region before, and although we knew the conflict existed, we could have never predicted what we discovered. We feel it is our responsibility as documentary filmmakers to finish this film to get the word out!
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We set our goal at $10,000, a conservative amount as a humble approach to asking the public, fans and our supporters for help. These funds will go towards the finishing costs of our film, mainly for Post-Production. (ie; motion graphics, end credits + gfx, color correction fixes, archive footage purchases, outputs & dubs, and everything else we need to make the film perfect for the public.) If we get lucky and a ton of people donate, anything that we raise over that will go towards helping us fulfill our goal of distributing and marketing the documentary as widely as possible!
WHY THIS FILM MATTERS
We are incredibly proud of the film at this point, but with a minor influx of financing would help us complete the film to its full potential and would hopefully in turn make a bigger impact with the film in order to help create real change. It's as simple as going to our website www.isolated.tv and clicking on TAKE ACTION. Just below is an example video featuring Ryan Phillippe, as well as a few other celebrities who have taken action.
BUT NO ACTION CAN BE TAKEN IF WE DON'T FINISH THE FILM!! AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
FILM INFO + TRAILER
ISOLATED is about a group of feral surfers and modern day explorers who embark on a journey to search for one of the world's last undiscovered waves in the journalist dead zone island of New Guinea. Their adventure becomes all too real as they encounter real life cannibals, discover human rights atrocities and expose an unethical mining corporation. This unique, visually stunning film craves an international spotlight as it brings to light one of the world's least documented places on earth. Isolated features never before seen footage of a ancient aboriginal culture as well as one of the most epic wave discoveries in recent years.

Since we are in the home stretch of the film, the risk is extremely low. We have been fortunate enough to find talented creatives to donate their time to help get the film to this point, and with one last push we hope to make the biggest impact possible with the film in order to create peace in West Papua. We need as many people as possible to see this film!!
Luckily for us, numerous main stream publications have written about the film, and have helped further our awareness campaign for peace. Here are a few of those articles:

We are so very close to making this film perfect that there is nothing that can stop us! The film is 95% complete, but in order for the film to make the maximum impact we need to finish that final 5%. The money raised from kickstarter will allow that to happen.
