Under the thick dark mist and rain billows of a San Francisco winter, Jenny's wedding approaches. She loves her life partner, yet is nervous about something she can't exactly put her finger on. At that point she finds an old photo of her grandma in her wedding dress, and everything appears to become alright. She knows she should get hitched in that dress. Jenny's feelings of dread and doubst touch off into a fanatical trip to her repelled close relative's home at the Salton Sea, an earth crushed and long overlooked excursion spot, looking for the dress.

In the shine of the betray there is no place to stow away and Jenny is compelled to settle on a portion of the hardest choices of her life with the goal that she can understand her future.
Not exclusively is Saltwater remarkable in its substance, utilization of fascinating areas, and its dedication to brilliant, low spending plan filmmaking, it is likewise exceptional in that it is an affirmed coordinated effort of City College of San Francisco's Cinema Department. As a Cinema Department educator, veteran producer and the author/chief of Saltwater, Swenson proposed the joint effort, which was endorsed by the school toward the finish of Fall Semester 2011. The program began in the Spring Semester 2012 with 15 staff assistants. Through the span of making this film, more than 75 understudies partook in the entry level position!
The embodiment of the coordinated effort is that the greater part of the second string positions for all periods of generation were enlisted and secured from CCSF's gifted and yearning understudy body. To promote our instructive objective, the greater part of the lead team positions were filled by industry experts who specifically regulated the understudies, giving them significant hands-on understanding and direction, in the specialty of filmmaking. This coordinated effort made our vision of low spending plan, high creation esteem filmmaking a reality, while permitting Swenson to tutor and instruct the up and coming era of movie producers all through all periods of generation.
Outwardly, Saltwater discovers its character in the interaction between its two profoundly differentiating situations: the stark and unusual brilliance of the Salton Sea, and the terrible yet hyper-dynamic luxuriousness of San Francisco. This story is told as much through the statement of these areas as it is through the performing artists. Acclaimed and skilled cinematographer, Frazer Bradshaw, is shooting on an Epic, guaranteeing that we take full favorable position of the artistic capability of both areas.
The film is finished, and has its World Premier not too far off at San Francisco Independent Film Festival (otherwise known as SF Indie Fest)! The assets we are raising are to pay for advertising and reputation (i.e. blurbs), DVDs, lawful expenses for future dissemination, and future celebration entries.
