Lone Wolf Documentary Group and SeaAcher Productions, two television documentary production companies, have teamed up to produce a television reality series about the adventure and drama of offshore sailing and cruising.
They are looking for videos of your trip. Their plan is to gather video stories from sailors who are willing to shoot video and record voices and sound of their shore voyages —or have already done so. What they are looking for is video clips of stories at sea, people talking about problems and solutions, radio chatter, weather forecasts and the action of sailing a boat in heavy weather.
They also want to show the fun and sun and the drama of a sea voyage. From this material, the producers will create a pilot to show television executives at Discovery and National Geographic what such a series would look like. They want to show the executive the potential of a reality series, not unlike “Dirty Jobs,” “Deadliest Catch,” and the “Whale Wars” series.
If you have already shot video of a recent voyage off shore, they'd like to see that as well. Their website has instructions and more information on what's needed. You can read their Reality TV Authors handbook at www.dhlyman.com.
The executive producer is David Lyman, a seasoned offshore sailor and founder of the International Film Workshops in Rockport, Maine. He has made 10 voyages from Maine to the Caribbean and back and knows there are compelling stories to tell of people who go to sea in the fall, seeking paradise in the sun.
