Apalachicola. The word rolls off your tongue, evoking images of something complex, mysterious, ancient and timeless. The Apalachicola River is all of these things. The headwaters of this river are in North Georgia, along the Appalachian Trial. It flows south through the rural northwest Florida into the Gulf of Mexico.
“There are great places to film in Florida that are spectacular, but the Apalachicola River and its tributaries are elusive and not well understood. There is a quiet serenity on the river, but an untamed and mysterious side in the back-waters of the river. The abundance of textures and shapes, spectrums of light, change of seasons, levels of water, combined with the collection of species that are unique to this area creates a filmmakers delight. Having the opportunity to capture images of nature in the region I call home, and to share those images with others has put a smile on my face and satisfaction in my soul.”
