THE WILDWATER STORY
When ordinary people, share a singular passion, the extraordinary emerges.
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 - wild places and whitewater - and put its soul on film. A tall order. After thousands of hours of effort around the world and in our studio, we have achieved much of the goal.
Borrowing Hollywood film tools and techniques, including RED digital cinema cameras and world class post production techniques, WildWater brings not only new perspectives, but new images to kayaking and the world of adventure cinema.
