WAVERLY BOOGIE


“The Waverly Boogie” is a feature-length documentary about a grassroots music & arts festival that comprises the entire town of Waverly, Alabama (population 147). When Print Shop Designer, Scott Peek, and the town of Waverly celebrated the completion of US Highway 280 in the year 2000, after the Alabama Dept. Transportation re-routed the highway, bypassing the town and sparing it from demolition, the “Old 280 Boogie” was born. This local celebration has exploded into the most authentic venue for the arts and humanities in the state of Alabama. This music documentary exhibits cultural ideas and appreciation from Alabamians and visitors from all over the world, celebrating the community within this small town in rural Alabama – an unlikely destination, for a standard deluxe experience, and most of all, a place to boogie. 

WILL YOUR DREAMS

LOGLINE
A shattered woman copes with the death of her son who transformed the community with his music, but lost his life in a crippling battle with bipolar disorder.

OVERVIEW
Written and developed by Adam Sutherland, the original script was influenced by the anthology of music from the musician Griff Parrish. A rewrite of the screenplay was based off of the title track, “Will Your Dreams” from the album To Dream of Winged Things. Although the character’s name is Griff, and takes inspiration from the late musician, the majority of the story takes place in a fictional community in Martin, AL. Lake Martin is a postcard attraction to residents in south Alabama, and the setting surrounds the central narrative of the community that Griff and his family live in. This lake community reflects so much of the culture that inspired Adam to write the story, as well as the conceptual narrative residing in a college town, full of colorful characters that make up the town of Martin, AL.
