About the Production:
 
"We wanted to take on the challenge of making a beautiful movie with a limited budget outside the Hollywood studio system. We relied on our passion for realistic human story telling as a model for 'Wild Blue', and used our past experience making short films to take our filmmaking to the next level and make our first feature film. The finished product has become something more organic and original than we ever could have imagined, and was only been possible by doing it truly independent." -- Josh Hope
