Indie Filmers + Photogs Continue to Step Up — Cascada Kayak Film Is Worth Your Attention

The banal and boring quickly get lost as noise among the infinite video and photo uploads that occur across the interwebs on the daily. To rise above and be seen, you need to step your shit up, big time.

The peeps over at NRS Films and Forge are on a serious streak of producing killer, award-winning films of their paddling adventures. “Is this a vacation?” they ask themselves? Watch the video and tell me this is anything but passion-pursuit disguised as hard work. No one wakes up in the morning and says, “I think I’ll spend the day in the rainy jungle getting eaten alive by a blood-thirsty insect population and subjecting myself to countless viruses — all for the hell of it.” You’ve got to have a damn good reason to put yourself in that place. For Erik Boomer, Tyler Bradt, Galen Volckhausen and the rest of these dudes, the reason is pretty simple.

I spent an hour last night devouring this stuff… Here’s some more of their work to complement:

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of
your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

My life is nothing, a mere braindead routine compared to these guys and their lives and freedom, doing what is awesome and what they love. Don’t stop, you free us mere mortals, even if only for 7 minutes at a time. Rock On…

There´s nothing to say. It´s all in the film! OMG!!

With someone like Tim Kemple running camera(s), who could ever be surprised at what is churned out!

You might want to watch Tim Kemple’s video from Phase One “No Vacations” on his inspiration as a photographer when he was in this assignment!

Crazy shit! I couldn’t believe the camera duds dangling above the water fall. I don’t think I have the balls man. Great post!
