White Water Safety Movie

Hello from Scotland. I have a question for you guys!

The New White Water Safety Movie that has just been released in Europe is being converted to NTSC format for the USA / Canada.

Its White Water Safety & Rescue split into 10 easy to follow chapters to introduce anyone to the basic concepts and techniques that help us all stay safer and have more fun on the river.

The instructional movie was filmed at the Rio Noguera Pallaresa in the Spanish Pyrenees, on multiple HD cameras by award winning filmmaker Paul Diffley and edited by a TV editor here in Scotland.

We're trying to gauge interest so that we can estimate how many copies to get duplicated at the start so as not to disappoint anyone.

For more information have a look at our website;

Eddyline Films - White Water Safety Movie

Or come and see us on Facebook

Please let us know if you are interested, we are working on getting NTSC and Download formats for you.

Its written, presented and produced by my friend Dougie Shannon and me, Bruce Jolliffe.

Any questions you can contact me at [email protected]

Best wishes,

Bruce


Thanks to Andy Horn for letting us post here to start with. Once we get NTSC DVDs and the Downloads sorted we'll be lurking in the commercial forum.

It looks really good from the teaser and I'm sure a huge amount of effort has gone in, but I'm not sure how many people would pay 20 quid for a DVD or download....

How long is the video?

White Water Safety Movie - Run time

Hi PhilM,

The runtime is 95 minutes (approx).

When you think that our price is similar to the going rate for most new kayak vids that are 45 minutes long then it represents twice the value.

And then consider that it is not a watch once DVD, its a reference material that people will go back to again and again.

And it has been produced using TV industry professionals.

Actually, for 20 quid, you're getting quite a lot. The download will be slightly cheaper as production costs drop with their being no physical thing to send out.

I hope that helps clarify.

Best wishes,

Bruce

Fair point!! Yeah, saving a few pounds for the download would be good, and 95 minutes is a lot of footage. Count me in!!

Whitewater safety and rescue is best taught in a classroom/river environment. Would you take a Wilderness First Responder class by video? How about a climber's rescue clinic? In my opinion, at any price, this is not the best way to learn important skills. Take a SWR class, boat with experienced boaters, practice knots and systems, and learn through real world experience is my suggestion.

CROAA has its outfitters showing an animated safety video to commercial rafting guests now to limit liability and it's stupid! These are question and answer concepts, even for the first timer. Videos are a great way to present noncritical educational materials, but I don't see them replacing the outdoor classroom.

As a supplement this could be a good tool, however and I hope it helps save lives. Just make sure you market it as a supplement to proper teaching.

I agree that a formal classroom and river practice environment is necessary. I also like the video resources for those just wanting to refresh from time to time.

As far as the whole "blu-ray is dead", I say what ev... It'll be around long enough for people to transition. No need to panic quite yet. Hell, you can still find vhs players that work. Damn, I remember renting vhs players.
