Le Pitch

Vape wave ambitions to be the first and most thourough movie about the electronic cigarette's incredible worldwide phenomenon. Jan Kounen dives head first into the ever growing vaping world, taking us around the globe to discover this ongoing cultural revolution, the first real alternative to traditional deadly tobacco smoking.

Tobacco’s history throughout the ages.

Fire, air, liquid, vapor, are all about alchemy.

A short animation sequence will sum up the evolution and the origins of the usage of nicotine throughout the ages, from the earliest primitive tribes, to today’s world of vaping.

At first, mankind has a sacred relationship with tobacco, but progress desacralizes and industrializes its usage. Instead of using its knowledge to try and avoid the toxic tobacco's combustion, the industry is going to use it to make cigarettes more addictive (making them more harmful in the process), just to increase profits. Finally, after years of development, vaping allows nicotine consumption with greatly reduced health risks. The animation sequence will proceed to depict the future of vaping…

History of vaping (interviews and documentaries)

In 1963, Herbert Gilbert filed a patent for the electronic cigarette, but back then, no one wants to produce it, especially not the tobacco industry…

40 years later, Hon Lik files a patent for the e-cig as we know it, trying to find a way to help his father, dying of lung cancer. This is the man who got the ball rolling.But vaping history isn’t only found on the internet. We learn more by talking to the vaping world's actors. For example, did you know that the first rebuildables were made of hair dryer heating elements back in 2008 ?

Let’s now listen to Vincent Athéa, who’s going to walk us through his debut in the vaping world, and how he engineered his first vaporizers with bits of light bulbs, Zippo wicks and lighters springs…

The movie

History in motion

At a time were legislations across the globe are trying to classify electronic cigarette as tobacco products, it seems important to assess the situation.

Is the electronic cigarette going to save the smokers, or poison them ?

Slowing its progress means killing more people, but aren’t we in the vaping “wild west” age ?
Do we need regulations or can this industry regulate itself ?

Who wants to ban the e-cig and why ?

What exactly is the role played by Big Tobacco in this counter-strike against the electronic cigarette ?

The Web

Smokers turned vapers are the best ambassadors of vaping. This worldwide phenomenon spread its
wings within the web and its millions of pages dedicated in helping newbies finding their way in this
jungle and rebuild their first coils. This powerful media has helped selling goods, small companies in
distributing their creations and globally spreading the vaping movement.

The team

The production company Media Screen headed by Marc Obéron in Lausanne obtained financial backing from E-Moovie ANGELS which has enabled the film to go into production.
(E-Moovie ANGELS is a group of private investors in Switzerland which wants to support committed films which aim to reach a large international audience.)

The film has also benefitted from support from the general public via the platform Touscoprod, which has allowed shooting to begin.
Moreover, the passion of the various players in the e-cigarette world, through the site www.vapewave.net, has been real motivation for Jan Kounen. The financial backing via this site will be used to publicize the film.

In order to reach as large an international audience as possible, Vape Wave will be filmed in a dozen different countries and in 5 languages.

Editing and special effects will be carried out by the companies Rita and Mac Guff Ligne. This post-production work will be done in Paris, as will the fiction sequences which will be filmed this summer in partnership with the company Next Shot.

So, Media Screen produced Vape Wave in collaboration with E-Moovie ANGELS, Tawak Pictures, Rita Films, Mac Guff Ligne and Weesper.

    Merci pour ce que vous faites et je suis heureuse de participer, même si ma contribution reste modeste.
    J’aimerais pouvoir vous aider autrement, je partage tant que je peux sur la toile, mais j’aimerais aussi mettre des affiches dans les boutiques où nous pouvons nous rendre. Avez-vous prévu un support que je puisse imprimer ?
    Merci encore pour tout à toute l’équipe.

    Petit contributeur également, je me dis que pierre après pierre, on bâtis des monuments qui peuvent traverser les âges !
    C’est tout ce que je souhaite au projet de Jan… qu’il devienne un monument dédié à la vape libre, qu’il soit le témoignage d’une époque, celle qui à vue l’avènement d’une technologie qui à mis fin au carnage planétaire engendré par l’industrie du tabac !

    keep vaping !!!!

    Contributeur de la première heure, j’attends beaucoup de ce film, réellement persuadé qu’il fera bouger les mentalités, plus qu’une loi ne pourra jamais le faire, en inscrivant la culture de la vape dans le présent, en la sortant de l’underground où elle encore confiné. Merci à toi et à ton équipe Jan !

    Je suis très très contente de participé en ayant donnée peu mais beaucoup pour moi parc que très petit salaire… Mais c’est pour une bonne cause car le film doit sortir pour que beaucoup de monde croient à la vape avec le Film VAPE WAVE … Ma prochaine dépense sera un T-shirts VAPE WAVE que je serais fière de porter :)… Un grand MERCI Jan Kounen de la part d’une vapeuse qui vape depuis le 16 décembre 2013 qui croit en toi … Big bisous ! :)

      1. Michael Alary on

        Je ne parlais pas de contrepartie, je voulais dire acheter des « goodies » pour participer encore un peu.
        D’une manière ou d’une autre, je pense que les bénéfices des t-shirts et autre iront pour le film.
        Bref, content de pouvoir bientôt porter vos couleurs ^^

  51. ludovic carpentier on
