The short movie Ripple was written and directed by Don Boner, Indianapolis, IN. Ripple was the first short film Don Boner created. The movie was shot with a Canon GL1
and a Lowell light kit was used for the interior lighting, sound was recorded on a Sonny DAT Walkman. The idea for Ripple occurred to Don as he was driving on Indiana highway
135 south of Nashville IN, and on the back roads of Brown County last October, 2001. With the events of 9-11 still in his mind he began to wonder how mankind would react to a
catastrophic event that affected not only their physical world but also their mental and spiritual world. Don has enjoyed reading lay books on physics and knew that Einstein had
postulated when a large star implodes on itself a ‘Ripple in the Space/Time Continuum’ must occur. Exactly what a Ripple in Space/Times means is the subject of current scientific

Don created a treatment for Ripple in early May, and completed the script in mid June. Auditions were held July 9, Thirteen local actors auditioned for the three main parts.
On July 10, Don had selected the cast and the Interior scene was shot on July 16. The exterior scenes were shot at Holiday Park, Indianapolis on July 20, 2002 Don worked
day and night for the next 5 days editing with Adobe Premier. A completed version of Ripple was sent to the duplicator on July 29, 2002.

A public screening of Ripple was held on August 2, 20027 at Key Cinemas, Indianapolis, for cast and crew and their friends.

Film Synopsis:

On one level Ripple is a Science Fiction story about the consequences of what would happen if a large star that was in close proximity to our solar system were to implode on itself. If
the gamma rays radiation did not kill all life on earth how would the ‘Ripple’ in the Space/Time Continuum that Einstein postulated effect mankind? The last three people on earth struggle
with the altered reality they face, as one by one they disappear from the universe. Or do they?

On another level the movie asks, are we real? What is the meaning of life and death, and the universal question, which remains unanswered? Why?

The Protagonist believes he must keep moving and that he will find answers ‘down the road.’ Until the end he is confidant that everything can be explained and that somehow things
will return to normal.

The Skeptic has a broader conscious awareness of the catastrophic events that has occurred. At first he doubts that the protagonist is real, but joins him as the two wanders around
looking for a road to take.

The Emotional Defeatist is convinced all is lost. She too doubts that protagonist is real and she is agitated by the protagonist desire to move on ‘Go Where!’ she shouts at him when
he suggests that they keep moving.

The Antagonist is the force of nature or the Universe itself.

The emotional defeatist and the skeptic disappear forcing the protagonist to ponder his fate and that of the universe as he cries to the heavens “WHY??”.

The Voiceover of the Professor at the end posses a disturbing question for the viewer to contemplate ‘Perhaps a large ripple has hit the earth before, and the human mind forces
us to forget the experience. Those poor souls who do remember, we label as psychotic and lock them up. Or then maybe the ripple moves everyone to a higher plain, or a new universe.’
