Confluence Films 'CONNECT' coming to Columbus Ohio!
I am super excited to be able to announce that 'Connect', a Confluence Films Production, will have a showing in Columbus thanks to the hard work of recent Maine transplant Michael Decoteau! Michael put in the initial capital, worked with the production company, secured a theater location, and lined up local sponsors and talent to make this event a reality in Ohio's capital city.
Here is the offical release:
CONNECT From the makers of "DRIFT" and"RISE"
From Chris Patterson and Jim Klug - the filmmakers who created the highly acclaimed movies DRIFT and RISE comes CONNECT, the most ambitious, large-scale fly fishing film ever made. Continuing in the tradition of the multisegment, multi-story format that Confluence Films has become known for, CONNECT introduces a number of new locations, exoctic species, and compelling characters that epitomize and exemplify the sport of fly fishing. Shot on location in Japan, Yellowstone National Park, the Yukon Drainage of Alaska, the flats of Cuba, the coast of Maine, and in the wilds of Tanzania, Africa, this feature length movie will once again transport viewers around the world in search of new waters and exhilarating travel experiences. CONNECT features well-known anglers Greg Vincent, Jeff Currier, Jimmy Bartschi, Craig Mathews, Masa Katsumata, Brian Porter, and Captain Eric Wallace, and more than a dozen different fish species, both freshwater and saltwater. As with DRIFT and RISE before, the cinematography, sound, and feel of CONNECT come together in a visual masterpiece that promises to re-set the bar for fly fishing films.
