About Us

We are a media production company and digital agency based in the Washington DC, metro area and Orlando, Florida that specializes in media + strategy. What does that mean? Well, we make really good videos and know what to do with them.


Founded by award-winning Director/Producer/Editor Tom Prather to pursue creative ideas and produce compelling content.  We have grown to create award-winning media like; national television commercials, feature-length films, television series, online video programming, and branding design work.  


Our strategy behind our media creation is revolutionizing the way consumers and fans digest content. Our distribution methods and products, including online video distribution, the video brochure, and wearable video name tags, are changing the way original content is being produced and distributed. Our design work takes it to the next level as we physically install, and sometimes paint,  the designs on walls, floors, and storefronts.

Chief  WaveMaker

Tom Prather originally founded The Blue Wave for the purpose of producing original television programming. That soon led to developing a reputation of looking at things differently and developed the mantra of "Why not"?


The first example of this in action was Prather's maiden voyage in the entertainment business as a photographer for Van Halen after making a few creative calls and finding a stack of letterhead. 


Prather went on to be sought out as an editor and director for television commercials and long format video projects and later started the Letterbox Film Festival, the world's first monthly film festival, after securing Cabo Wabo tequila as the title sponsor.
