Scott Lindgren Productions Presents Burning Time 2

Premieres at the Reno Whitewater Festival may 12th, 06, Pioneer Theater, 8 pm. For more info check out the movie trailer at www.slproductions.tv or www.myspace.com/scottlindgren.

Here is a copy of the Press Release.

Following the success of Burning Time, Emmy award winning cinematographer
Scott Lindgren is proud to announce the release of Burning Time II. Via a
16mm film in the making for 2 years, Lindgren takes the viewer on a world
wide extravaganza with the best kayakers, skiers, and surfers this planet
has to offer.

The film begins on Upper Salween River, in China’s Yunnan Province. The
Salween river has the character and power of Yarlung Tsangpo. Our team,
Steve Fisher, Willie Kern, Andrew Holcombe and Ben Coleman, took three
weeks to explore the region. Our goal was to shoot a wave surfing
segment; however, we ran into some resistance from the local government,
so we skipped town and drove up river to the Tibetan border. Putting on
15 miles inside Tibet, we did a 60 mile first descent through one of the
most spectacular gorges any of us had ever seen. For 5 days, Steve in his
Riot Nitro and Andrew with his Dagger Crazy 88, self supported, fully
loaded freestyle kayaks on one of the scariest expeditions either
of them had been on in years. It was extremely big, technical, whitewater
with an epic wave at the end.

We then head off to Zambia, to the Zambezi River, for the first ever stand
up surfboard segment on Rapid #11’s tubing river wave. Board master Bill
Bryon and aerial specialist Gavin Sutherland tear the wave up for ten
days. The wave is a stand up, 6-foot, barrel on a river. The boyz
impress the locals with a 2-time, boogie board, swim descent through the
infamous number 9 rapid at super high water. Then they smoke us out with
10- minute rides in and out of the barrel. We also hook up with Steve
Fisher, Dale Jardine, and Sam Drevo for a big water run down the Minus
Rapids, which are a series of massive drops at the base of the Victoria

Next destination, the Niagara Gorge for the first known descent since
1989. Thinking that it was illegal, we poached the put-in and went for
it. It is a 1.5 mile, one-hundred twenty five thousand CFS speed, decent
that thrashes through a big gorge creating compression waves that are 30
to 40 feet in height. On our second time through we were quietly waiting
at the put-in for the rain to stop. Out of nowhere a couple of park
officials show up. They asked us what we were up to and we told them our
plan, “run the river”. They didn't seem to have a problem with it, so as
soon as the rain ceased we put on for a second run. All of the runs were
shot from a helicopter.

Dave Garringer and Rusty Sage set off to Turkey with two objectives. One
was to take part in the first annual Dave Manby Extreme Race. The winner
received a new car. Then, they proceeded to the Black Sea for numerous
first descents on rivers that pour off a 10,000-foot mountain range
creating steep creeks that are very continuous in nature. The area is a
cross between Colorado and British Columbia, very different from what was
expected considering most of the country is a desert.

Bryan Kirk, at 2:30am in morning, delivers a stellar nighttime performance
on the Skookem Chuck wave in British Columbia.

Shannon Carrol and Matze Brustiman, Jason Hale and Dave Garringer, play
for keeps on a super high water descent of Upper Cherry Creek.

Shannon and Matze along with Steve Fisher, Rusty Sage, Taylor Robertson,
and Jason Hale, take on California’a last unsung hero, the first descent
of the Upper Middle Kaweah.

Eric Hjorliefson delivers another unreal ski performance in the Columbia
Ice Fields at Mica Heli Ski in British Columbia, Canada. Eric’s talents
have brought him recent fame and lots of heli time. Over the course of
the last two years we captured Eric throw down one of the top performances
seen in skiing in years.

Finally, Pat Keller drops a 30 into 83-foot waterfall in Costa Rica
nailing it perfectly but somehow crashes his hand into his helmet breaking
it in the knuckle area. Pat’s performance includes two sick drops that
are guaranteed to drop your jaw.

YES!!!!! The first burning time is pretty much my favorite kayaking video. I love it! I can't even remember how many times I have watched it. I am excited to see the next one. Niagra gorge sounds awesome! Just ordered BT II off the net...
