Nantucket Independent Film: Tides of Summer

Star Thrower Entertainment is currently developing the feature film project ‘Tides of Summer’, set on and slated to be shot on Nantucket. Tim and Trevor White of Star Thrower, along with screenwriter Scott Simonsen, will be on the island throughout the Nantucket Film Festival.

‘Tides of Summer’ is the story of eighteen year-old Benjamin Wolfe, a boy from Los Angeles who embarks on a summer trip to visit his grandfather in Nantucket.

Susan Beaumont, Nantucket Viewfinder Productions, and Star Thrower Entertainment will be hosting a gathering for people who are interested in learning more about the project — upstairs at Captain Tobey’s Chowder House, 20 Straight Wharf (lower Main St.) Saturday, June 21 from 4 to 5:30 pm.

Tim White and brother Trevor White formed Star Thrower Entertainment in 2007. Along with producing numerous award-winning shorts, Tim is currently developing multiple feature and television projects through Star Thrower including the Nicholls Fellowship winning screenplay, Tides of Summer. Tim was a former nationally ranked junior tennis player and a winner of the NCAA National Tennis Championship while at Williams College in Massachusetts and attended USC School of Cinema-Television.

Trevor White has directed numerous award-winning short films. His film ‘Knockout’ won a top prize at the 2008 Cleveland International Film Festival, it was a finalist in the 2008 Very Short Movies Festival, was an official selection for the 2007 Palm Springs International Shorts Festival, and the 2007 Los Angeles Shorts Festival. His film A Detective Story recently premiered at the Beverly Hills Shorts Festival. Trevor has just completed his most recent independent film, Day 21, currently on the festival circuit.

    I had the pleasure of meeting the White brothers and it was clear they are both exceptionally gifted. I look forward to seeing ‘Tides of Summer.’
