Filming with Anna Levesque, Girls at Play

Last week I began filming with Anna Levesque for her new Girls at Play, Whitewater Kayaking Instructional video.  We worked all week, filming at Fontana Lake, Nantahala River & NOC, Little Tennessee River, French Broad River, Green River and more.  Anna is the most well organized person I have ever worked with on any video project.  We hammered through a large portion of her script and shot list in this first week and got to paddle and film with some of the most experienced, professional women in whitewater; Sarah Harper and Maria Noakes to name a couple.  These ladies display incredibly crisp, clean and stylish paddling skills and make it look effortless.

Anna’s production schedule is to finish shooting this summer and release her new film on DVD to the retail market in the Spring of 2010.  I should be finished editing the film by October, then Anna will have Heliconia Press handle her film duplication and distribution.  Confirmed sponsors of the film that I am aware of include Shred Ready, Kokotat and Nantahala Outdoor Center.  See Anna’s Website at www.WaterGirlsAtPlay.com
