Lotawana Poster Medium

Feature Film | 2018


Lotta-wanna / Lott-uh-wah-nuh


Lotawana is a new anthem movie for the restless. A monotonous life has pushed the unfulfilled Forrest (Todd Blubaugh) to a voyage of self-discovery by living amongst nature aboard his sailboat, Lorelei, on an alluring Missouri lake. Soon he catches wind of the rebellious and free-spirited Everly (Nicola Collie) and their idealistic dreams align. This thrilling and thought-provoking romantic journey follows the wanderlust couple as they are confronted by the challenges of their unconventional chosen path. Can they survive, reconnect with nature and rewrite their own rules of modern existence, or will they discover that society operates the way it does for a reason?


World-renowned and award-winning filmmaker Trevor Hawkins of Mammoth Media created Lotawana in his own back yard on Lake Lotawana, Missouri. Self-financing the film with a loan against his house, Hawkins was able to maintain the integrity of his unique style and vision by writing, directing, shooting, editing and coloring his debut feature-film himself. Produced with his wife Cori Jo Hawkins and filmmaking partner Nathan Kincaid, the skeleton crew of ten overcame an array of obstacles, including losing their first lead actress a week into shooting as she decided to leave the industry altogether. They broke as many first-time feature-filmmaking rules as they could, shooting on and under water, with children, with animals, and by filming during every season of the year to highlight the natural beauty of the lake in its many incarnations, delivering an emotional and visceral experience sculpted by undeniably gorgeous cinematography.


Can an unfulfilled young couple rewrite their own rules of modern existence by living aboard a sailboat on an alluring Missouri lake, or will they discover that society operates the way it does for a reason?


Let go.
