In intimate look at the world of salmon
My purpose and desire for making this documentary is to take people into the world of salmon as I see it when I am with them underwater. Having spent six years observing and documenting the lives of these salmon in the Campbell River and Quinsam River tributary, I have a vast amount of footage. Most people don't ever stick their head underwater in a flowing river, so they do not get to see how the view is from under the surface. So by sharing this in the form of a movie I hope to bring the miracle of the salmon to everyone. They truly are the heartbeat of the river.
Campbell River is known as the Salmon Capital of the World. For me it is more than just salmon fishing. I believe it is about them as a keystone species, feeding all other manner of life on the coast. Thus making the diversity of wildlife here greater, from eagles and bears, to whales, sealions and more.
