A radical environmentalist law enforcer brings his absurd brand of vigilante justice on self-propelled water-skis.
He stirs up the waters in the rural community of Rainy Lake to stop pollution of the lake and thwart drug traffickers exploiting Native Americans.
Writer: Brent Cooper
Director/producer: Graeme Morgan
The filmmakers say:
“Lake Cop 2: Ripple Effect was originally simply a comedy skit/mock trailer, and was produced on zero budget by our small creative team with Graeme Morgan at the helm.
However, the idea has since evolved into a passion project with the intent to make a real feature film. Brent Cooper discovered a world within the character of Roderick Fischer that had to be explored, and subsequently a full feature script has emerged from the depths.
The screenplay story fuses together the elements of nature/environmentalism, justice/indigenous rights, and Canada/US border politics and drug smuggling, with a serious yet deeply satirical tone, all set in a beautiful recreational lake culture.
While the trailer/short is a stand alone comedy piece, we hope to bring attention to our professionalism and ambition with this project, and gain the support to make a feature film.”
