Professional kayaker Steve Fisher has been busy challenging the swollen rivers of Northern Minnesota during this year of record runoff. But Fisher and his kayaking friends Andy McMurray and John McConville are determined to record their adventures this year in stunning detail.
Fisher and crew accepted the challenge of creating the first-ever high-def 3D kayaking film. In the process he’s been working alongside some of the best 3D filmers in the world.
The ambitious project comes with some added risks. At one stage, Fisher had his mind more on the shot than his run, and quickly got himself into trouble when he became pinned against a tree.
Fisher is relatively new to the filmmaking business, but he’s already gained a following. Last year he released his first film, “Halo Effect”, which won the award for Best Adventure Film at X Dance.
Be on the look out for the August edition of Canoe & Kayak Magazine. The issue features an exclusive behind-the-scenes feature on Fisher and the Fish Munga crew’s mission. The 10-page feature story contains some of the most dynamic 3D photography ever shot on a river–the result of Steve and photographer Greg Von Doersten rappelling into remote gorges with more than 100 pounds of specialized camera gear. Plus, every copy comes with a pair of 3D glasses to watch the movie online.
