Do you know someone that has had a traumatic life altering event happen so overwhelming it almost crushes the essence of who they are? 

20 years

It was 20 years ago that Nadia's father unexpectedly passed away.  A teenager at the time, this tragedy devastated Nadia.  A debilitating darkness that consumed Nadia to her core crushing her natural artistic creativity. Fortunately Nadia had the sense and the strength to seek help. Through the therapy process it unchained a record's worth of heartfelt lyrics creating an album called "The Ocean Master".  Nadia's artistic soul was reborn.

Journey

In June, I will be traveling to Nadia's homeland with a simplified version of her band.  Nadia, Dave, Harvey and myself are driving across Australia. We will embark on a 3 week road trip filled with live music gigs, teaching children to sing, a family unification culminating with Nadia's releasing of her father's ashes at sea. Two decades later, a final resting place for her father and a healing milestone for Nadia.

Purpose

This project is to create a documentary film about hope, strength and love.

Nadia's story will be an inspirational film about changing one's life.

The goal is to raise $2,500 dollars.  This will merely reimburse the project for the expenses mentioned below.  Anything over the goal will be used to pay a professional film editor. An important task to creating a powerful and inspirational film.  

Your donations will go directly towards essential film documenting equipment: external hard drives to store the many hours of film footage, video memory cards and rental fees for lighting, sound and video equipment.
