View the trailer for Stories of Survival, showing at this year’s Reel Paddling Film Festival. This film won in the Instructional category at this year’s festival.
The ACA partnered with Anzovin Studio and the U.S. Coast Guard to create an animated memoir-style video that urges paddlers to take personal responsibility for their safety on the water. This short video focuses on the stories of three different paddlers, and tells the harrowing accounts of their near-death experiences on the water. A very special thanks to John Keys, Marci Kenneda, and John “Showboat” Derrick.
