The Production

Saltwater is an independent feature film, written and directed and co-produced by Bay Area Filmmaker, Artist, and Educator, Lise Swenson. The film is being produced in collaboration with City College of San Francisco and Goodwill, using an educational community based model. Since January of 2012, over 65 city college students and numerous Goodwill employees have worked as interns to complete preproduction and production. 

 

Saltwater began filming on February 28th and wrapped May 19th, 2013 with a crew made up of a mixture of students, Goodwill employees and respected industry professionals. We are scheduled to complete post-production in Spring of 2014, have a successful run at film festivals starting shortly thereafter, and secure distribution by the end of 2014.
