History of Blind Wave
Blind Wave has been working together for some time now.
Since Highschool Shane and Eric have worked on creating their own fights and choreography sequences. Shane and Eric began working together on their own personal films back in 2006. These films were created for the International Lightsaber Choreography Competition. They created such videos as The Locket and The Tunnel.
As they progressed they met Aaron who joined up with them in 2008. They created two fights in 2009. Together they created their videos Bounty and AVR Advent. After taking what they learned from their past fights they created their first award winning video Rivals. It won 1st place in the LCC VIII (2010). They then created Novices and Novi in 2011, This was their fist attempt at creating choreography that they were not performing themselves. While winning no awards this year the film was well received for its comedic factor.
In 2012 Blind Wave worked hard to make their next 1st place video in the LCC, Ferocity. This was their first attempt at, not only a double bladed lightsaber but also, a two versus one duel. The video was very well received and is over 1.5 million views on youtube.
In 2013 they began work on their fan film Star Wars The Old Republic: The Pit. This was the biggest project they had worked on to date. This project involved a bigger set, costumes, props, extras, script and story, lights, generators, and much more. This video is still in post production and is planned to have a 2015 release.
While working on The Pit they have done some other media work with Mid-Ohio Valley Championship Wrestling, The Marietta Sternwheel Committee, and Wedding Videography.
In 2014 Blind Wave joined up with Black Crimson Effects Studio and Rag-n-Bone Productions on an independent film The Seven. Blind Wave Choreographed, Planned, and Shot a major S.W.A.T. Team sequence in the film, including a car chase scene. They also helped run camera on some other scenes and sequences for the film.
Currently Blind Wave strives to be a creative videography team. They do many reaction and review type shows on their Youtube Channel and work on Fan films and more original content for their audience.
