Feb 1st to April 31st 2011 or about 90 days
The trip along the east coast of NZ, North to South is roughly 1474.8 Nautical Miles total.
We are recording the journey and hope to make a 60 min documentary on the adventure, spotlighting Sea Kayaking in history in New Zealand and the people we meet along the way.
Dave and I have invested a lot of money into committing to and out fitting the expedition, and we need money to get the rest of the quality camera gear we need to capture our adventure, and also to edit the final product professionally. Thus through kick starter we are hoping to raise at least $5000 US to fund the HD video equipment, Audio gear and post production we need to give the documentary the professional appeal it deserves.
Post production will be done with help of Pure production New Zealand (, with major input from Dave and I.
The final product will be available for sale and will hopefully be entered into adventure film festivals.
Thank you for your belief and support in our project.
