If nothing else, this paddling documentary has some amazing cinematography. I'd love to see a making of actually. Not quite sure how they got all the footage in such forbidding terrain.

Have you heard of this? Is it the real deal? Looked amazing, but seemed a little dramatic at times.

Yes. It is the real deal. A couple of the guys have been sending it my way but I was trying to save it for a "movie" night with the paddlers to start the season. You know how life gets so I'll likely just end up watching it when the kids are in bed.

And then I'll get back to you:)

I was expecting a preview clip but that's the whole film. Yayyy!! :)

Bloody hell! I just blew off a good chunk of my morning.

That is one of the best paddling vids I've seen.

Watched this last week - really cool. I was also wondering how they got some of the footage as it didn't seem like there was anyone else in the canyon with them. Heli or drone coordinated by radio?

I think both. The helicopter was involved in the more open sections - which makes sense.

I figured both heli and drone too. Absolutely beautiful place. I would've loved to have seen footage of the stuff they deemed impassable. And the portages they had to do with those boats must've been hell.

You'd think having a helicopter hover above you in the canyon would take away some of the wilderness feel of the expedition...

When they have to bring a bolt gun you know the portages had to be intersting:)
