ABOUT DUST WAVE
In 2020, amidst a global pandemic, the Dust Wave collective was founded to house our creative filmmaking pursuits, even though none of us at the time were part of the film or TV industry. In the interim, we’ve created web content, podcasts, and award-winning short films. We create films in a way where anyone can participate freely, in stark contrast to the industry standard 12+ hour day schedule, specialized roles, and exploitative conditions. Each project is democratically selected, and roles are interchanged to allow for exploration in all of the different interlinked skills and talents essential to filmmaking. We endeavor to create a sustainable space where filmmakers can still express themselves fully in a medium they love, while also being able to raise a family, sustain a relationship, or cook homemade meals in the evening. We integrate our families and friends into our films, and lean on our community for help and counsel. We are a diverse group of several dozen core members, with a majority Latinx background, all living and working in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area.
