Steve Fisher, one of the world's most legendary whitewater kayakers, has spent the last several years producing high end films about his globetrotting adventures. His films' stunning visuals and story telling, especially the Grand Inga Project, captured the imaginations of whitewater paddlers everywhere.
For his next project, however, Fisher aims to give back to the kayaking community. He has gathered a team of the world's best whitewater boaters to produce an instructional video called Dreamline. The film will be paired with a 60-page magazine about the curriculum. The team includes Dane Jackson, Eric Jackson, Ben Marr and Pat Keller.
"We've all partnered to devise a detailed curriculum that demonstrates the mastery of fundamental skills and good style that'll ultimately translate into safer, more confident and enjoyable paddling."
To ensure that this instructional film is a the best it can be, Fisher will use cutting edge production techniques that ensure the entire video comes off flawlessly with its targeted curriculum. Fisher and his team started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the film's budget.
Contributors to the campaign can chose from a range of "perks" and rewards for their contributions. The $25 pre-purchase of the video is the absolute no-brainer. But if you want to be a bit more extravagant, larger amounts of money will earn you a date with Ben Marr or the chance to paddle with a pro.

The film will cover skills for all levels of whitewater kayaking. "If you've been in a kayak, I think you know how magical the experience is. That experience can only improve by developing your skills and confidence. So whether you're working on your roll, or you're plateaued out on class IV, we're going to cover what it takes to take your ability to the next level."—Steve Fisher
