The Wavecrest Award is our unique trophy designed to honor the filmmaker or artist who excels in their category.
The original design is by San Jose CA sculptor Jeff Owen. A sleek plate of shining steel dances with a ribbon of hand cut metal filmstrip to become a one of a kind work of art that we are proud to have as our own.
The Wavecrest Award was unveiled at The 2010 Clearwater Film Festival. Created to honor the actor / writer / director, what the festival dubs a “triple threat filmmaker”. Wavecrests were awarded in thirteen categories.

Jeff Owen, Sculptor – In His Own Words
“I try to approach each sculpture without following a set pattern. My work begins with any idea. These ideas can begin with a found object or they can begin with no object. When I’m in my studio I may stumble and kick a few bits here and there — and they may just happen to throw into a pattern that sets me off, that sets off a vision of how I would create and finish. If only it all had that kind of accidental beauty to it. I want to be like a poet, with my sculpture, my paintings, my life. My sculptures unite shapes – organically manipulated objects and textures, merging energy, allowing my spirit to emerge. My sculpture is both negative and positive space, coexisting in one cohesive medium. The presence and substance of raw steel ignores the realm of the smelter and lives deeply, with emotion and a unique unknown clarity – deep within me. My sculptures are an existential part of me – brought to the surface for all to see. There is no deeper communication I can express.”
