"Kick starting the waterfowl seasons with two of the hardest wing to shoot"
FILM (4-6 Min)
-A short film shot to fit the flight of teal and doves. Shot fast, first person, and with lots of energy to stoke out the waterfowlers pre-season game. We are excited for this opportunity due to the fact that we have never made a film focused on these two species.
Id like to shoot the intro different than most waterfowl films and shoot it from the perspective of the dog. From the early morning waking up, to walking / boating out in the dark, setting out decs, and watching the birds from the dogs eyes. I think this will portray the energy and endurance from their perspective and represent Alpha Dog the best.

MUSIC by Drew Barefoot
Drew Barefoot has been writing, recording, and producing his own music for the exclusive uses of CANA for several years. His music sets our work apart in this industry and sets a powerful tone for every film we produce.
With this film, Drew would write and produce 1-2 songs (depending on the editors needs) to work to tell this story with very fine attention the emotion and climaxes throughout the footage. A few benefits to this option:
- Tracks are exclusive to the film vs a re-used license of a common track.
- Film flow and style is edited in complementing fashion to work together with the footage.
The music and the film will follow each other with footage and music never experienced by the viewer before.

The main reason I am taking this focus on the Delta is due to the fact I grew up hunting it. I am from Brentwood originally and have been heading out into the field with my Dad since I was 3. Now at 32 I have experienced quite a bit of waterfowl hunting throughout the country and have always felt the Delta is one of the most unique parts of CA waterfowling and the pacific flyway. It has an important story to tell for the waterfowl community.
The Grasslands and the Sacramento Valley get most of the attention for CA waterfowl hunting. I want to focus on this middle ground that holds a very comparable amount of waterfowl throughout the season. The story will keep the soul of waterfowling with the help of California Waterfowl Association and their conservation works and history of hunting these wetlands.
End of the day there is personal investment into this project as it would be amazing to tell the story of where I fell in love with chasing ducks and geese.
Thanks for considering!
