A sneak peak at our final segment for WildWater, filmed on a record high, very big North Fork in June 2010. For more see wildwaterfilm.com. The full film will be out in the fall, in festivals and small theaters in mountain towns. A huge thanks to co-writer and collaborator Doug Ammons, check out his incredible whitewater writing at dougammons.com
WildWater is a journey into the mind and soul of whitewater, into the places only river runners can go, places of discovery, solitude and risk. Its a visually stunning feast for the senses, and an expedition into new ideas. We set out to create a new kind of adventure film. One where image, sound and ideas trump all else. We wanted to communicate the essence of the thing we love - wildness and whitewater - and put its soul on film. A tall order. After thousands of hours of effort in around the world and in our studio, we are now editing the full version of a film we call WildWater, and we have achieved much of the goal. Borrowing Hollywood film tools and techniques, including RED digital cinema cameras and high speed film, WildWater brings not only new perspectives, but new images to kayaking and the world of adventure cinema.
