TIDES is a thesis film for Master of Fine Arts degree for cinematography fellow Edward Wu, producing fellow Dawn DeVoe, directing fellow Risto Tuominen and editing fellow John Carner.
As students and independent filmmakers, we depend on the generosity of our relatives, friends, and other third party contributors to help our project become a reality. AFI has provided us with a $13,000 grant and our goal is $65,000. Your support of TIDES is an investment in our futures as filmmakers.
