This film is based on live video footage of water waves, ripples, falls, rapids, etc. taken over a two-year period. This footage was then highly modified and edited in "After Effects" using multi-layers and colours with some animation to produce an abstract journey of water from stream to sea. A musical sound track called "Future Drought", composed by Alberta musician Greg Goa, is used with the film along with some vocal expressions which raises the film from a purely visual to a philosophical and spiritual level with environmental implications.
