The Perfect Wave – country wide release 28 Feb 2014

Boomtown Films and Innovation Films are stoked to announce…..

We have the fantastic opportunity of hosting Ian McCormack this year for his South African tour leading up to the international release of the movie based on his actual-death experience, The Perfect Wave. With the partnership of churches throughout South Africa, we hope to see Ian’s testimony radically change the hearts and lives of many people within our country forever.

In 1982, Ian McCormack was an adventurous 26-year-old, traveling the world in search of ‘the perfect wave’. One night, while diving for lobster on the small island of Mauritius, Ian was stung by five deadly box-jellyfish, the kinds that are among the most venomous creatures on Earth. By the time an ambulance had arrived, his body was completely paralyzed and necrosis had begun to set into his bone marrow. On route to the hospital, Ian began to see his life flash before him; he was an atheist at this stage in his life and wasn’t sure what death would bring. As he lay there dying, he saw his mother in a vision, praying for him and encouraging him to cry out to God from his heart so that He would hear and forgive him (his mother, at the time, was the only Christian in his family). After a vicious fight for his life, Ian was pronounced dead and sent to the local morgue. It was there that he had this extraordinary, actual-death experience.

The Perfect Wave is a full length, dramatic, theatrical feature film based on this true-life story of Ian MacCormack. The film was shot exquisitely in South Africa, Australia, Bali, Mauritius, New Zealand and Java under the direction of internationally renowned commercial director, Bruce Macdonald, and is produced by 7-time Emmy Award winning U.S. producer, S. Bryan Hickox.



The film is set to release in February 2014 across countries such as Australia, South Africa, the USA, and South America, to name but a few.

The SA Tour is set to cover the following areas:  

Cape Town: 12-14 February & 2 March

George: 15 February

Port Elizabeth 17- 18 February

East London 15- 16 February
