Wild Trout Documentary Sizzle Reel (Update)

Its been a while since I last posted and its because Ive been in the process of completing a few projects. Wild Trout is a Documentary about Montana’s trials, tribulations, and ultimate success in creating a world class fishery by going against the norm of stocking rivers. Dick Vincent, revolutionary fisheries biologist changed the way Montana studied rivers in the 1960’s. Along his quest to maximize the prosperity of fisheries in Montana, He revolutionized the way we studied rivers, and along the way hypothesized that stocking rivers was actually killing native fish, all at a massive cost to taxpayers.

I was hired by John Byorth and Angus Productions to shoot interviews, B-roll, and ultimately edit the Sizzle reel to ensure investors that the project could be strong, had great merit, and could be executed on. I shot it on a Sony FS700 with Dan Armstrong of Strobot Studios on second camera with a 5D Mark iii. This project is sure to be a strong stepping stone to conversations among fisheries managers across the world on how to create and maintain an economically sound and environmentally friendly fishery by better management of habitat and then weening off the policy of stocking fish.

Below are some screen-grabs from the edit that is currently in the works…
