Waterline Media short film wins Best Cinematography and Best Story at The Drake Fly Fishing Film Awards!
So my good friends Greg Dini and Gregg Arnold called us late afternoon a few Thursdays ago saying that they wanted us to produce a film to submit to The Drake Fly Fishing Film Awards. They wanted us to show that the Louisiana marsh was not as bad as the news media portrayed it to be. With the deadline only 7 days away we had very little time . Plans where made, flights were booked, skiffs were prepped and the next day Marc and I were on our way to New Orleans, spending the following two and half days filming in rainy and windy weather. Returning on Tuesday, Marc and I put together the 5 minute film over the next two days pulling a couple all nighters editing and were able to deliver a finished product before the deadline. We didn’t have months to prepare, or a stockpile of footage to use, so we produced the best short film we could in a total 5 days. The marsh is alive and well and a big thank you to Captain Greg Dini and Captain Gregg Arnold. Enjoy!

Waterline Media presents a short film for the Drake 5 minutes of Fly Fishing in New Orleans in August, 2011. Filmed over the course of an entire tarpon season from the lower Keys to the Panhandle, Riding High shows the entire migration from the viewpoint of those that chase this amazing fish every year.
A personal quest to catch a grand slam turns into an absurd goal to make a film about it. Tarpon, Permit and Bonefish on fly in one day in the waters surrounding Key West, Fl. This is the long version of what was enetered in the Drake Magazine Video Awards 2011. Enjoy!
