Wash up

When is it time to hang up the skates?

WASH UP is an independent feature film shot in Southern Ontario in 2015. It is written and directed by Andrew Frade, founder of Ampex Entertainment. The story of Wash Up follows Mason O’Brien, short-lived National Hockey League player and reluctant minor leaguer, as he revisits his hometown and the colourful characters that populate it. While hiding the reason he is home during the hockey season, Mason is forced to figure out if it’s finally time to hang up his skates. Part quarter-life crisis, part Canadian Garden State, Wash Up asks when is it time to give up on your dream?

WASH UP is the debut feature film of Ampex Entertainment’s creative director Andrew Frade. The cast and crew have all been working tirelessly for free because they believe in this project and telling a great story. If we exceed our goal, you can help get them paid! You will be proud of the finished product because WASH UP is a labour of love on behalf of everyone working on it.

Week 1 | Filming Experience of a Lifetime

Just a little update, we've wrapped our first week of shooting WASH UP! It's been a crazy experience with many ups and downs. The pipes froze at the cottage we're staying at so we've been using port-a-potties. But the crew and cast have all been amazing and we're having more fun than should be allowed!

If you were planning on donating to our project the campaign closes Tuesday, March 10! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/wash-up-an-indie-hockey-film

It's been a great run for our indiegogo campaign. Whether you liked, shared, or donated to our project I thank you for your support. Without it, we would not be able to make our film.
