WATERMAN is an infrastructure consultant overseeing project timelines for STM Asia Pacific Construction and the Victorian State Government.

When the safety of local kids's in his community is put at risk by train & public transport sector works around a local football oval, WATERMAN's professionalism is tested. His work obligations are gradually eroded by internal corporate politicking and a moral duty to acknowledge his own conflicts of interest: safety, destruction of trees and works around the local train station.

Pressure builds further when WATERMAN reveals a deep personal loss.

An investigative journalist with a folio of glossy A4 photo's confronts WATERMAN, demanding comments about alleged worksite corruption. Suspecting a whistleblower, WATERMAN is forced to seek answers from a dubious industry source. Corporate espionage. Black Ops. Call it what you want - it's risky.  It's his job.

How much danger is WATERMAN prepared to put himself in?

Forget the idea’s economy – it’s garbage. Australia’s future lies within the public transport infrastructure sector. Join WATERMAN’S ‘public relations tour’ for investors and stakeholders around Melbourne’s exploding construction activity for exclusive behind-the-scenes access to some of the biggest train network infrastructure project’s this country has ever seen.

A landmark achievement has been released for international audiences around the globe by Wise Words Media and Callumny Films:  'The Contract: PROJECT Waterman' . Essentially, 'The Contract: PROJECT Waterman' is a ‘spin-off’ of 'The Contract'.

Added to the recent launch of a new, highly innovative digital series 'this life', Wise Words Media and Callumny Films are making an impact statement on the undeniable economic importance of Australia's digital and infrastructure sectors.

'The Contract: PROJECT Waterman' is a uniquely original concept. The mockumentary webseries specifically references another original script by SEAN McINTYRE - 'The Contract' – which had its public debut at A Fistful of Scripts, a script reading series, in April, 2011 (Theatre Works, St Kilda Melbourne Australia).

A Fistful of Scripts is an innovative script development incubator produced by Wise Words Media in association with Callumny Films.
