Over the past few days, people have been voting for the Means of Production to be release for free online. And since DVD stock is depleted (and DVDs are a dying media), I thought “Why not?”….

Liquid Satisfaction – the vague brand covering everything from kayak coaching & guiding to extreme sports DVDs – is changing.
Rattle Media is a new video production company, specialising initially in corporate video and online promotional videos like thus:
However this is not the end of Liquid Satisfaction‘s extreme sports productions. Rattle Media will look to sponsor Means of Production 3 for which we hope to begin filming in 2013; taking advantage of all the high-end equipment the industry has to offer.
Mop3 will be a not-for-profit production.

As we all know, creating a top kayaking movie is a painstaking process. Part of this process is the long and laborious task for composing and performing music to fit the quick cut scenes of a fast-pace extreme sports film.

Every year, the Sjoa River Festival kicks off with the Pimp & Ho party.
This year, the British and Irish representatives kicked into action quickly to make this video:

We’re finally back in the land of waterfalls, expensive beer and cheap Jam.
After touching down in Oslo, a long train ride to Otta, and a bit of a warm-up on The Aamot Gorge; it was time to pick up the clients for the second Liquid Satisfaction / Tom Parker Coaching Norwegian adventure.
From big volume class 3/4 to the tight technical slides and drops on the Upper Ulla, the course covered technique, safety and leadership on the fabulous range of white water which Norway has to offer.
Learning how to slide using laterals, waves and cushions effectively is fun whatever the weather.
Max demonstrates the cautious line above the Class 6 waterfall on the Lågen Canyon
And at the end of a fun introduction to Norwegian drops and slides, it’s never a bad idea to impress your clients by running a trio of classic waterfalls on the Upper Ulla.
Less impressive but just as fun: the annual pimp ‘n’ ho night at the only pub in the Sjoa valley. For some reason, there were far fewer hos here than the last pimp ‘n’ ho night I attended on the Hairy Lemon, Uganda.

It’s been a while since I posted anything of substantial content and yet so much is going on in the world of Max.
In March, Adam Dumolo, Chris Easterbrook, Tom Parker and I ran the BCU Student Safety week in Scottland; helping current university canoe/kayak clubs with the important safety and leadership skills that help produce such persistent university bread boaters.
Let’s not forget the NSR and the first official DVD released this year.
So what for the future? What’s my next step? Well it’s going to be quite a relaxed summer for me; only 3 weeks in Norway and 3 weeks in Uganda. A little repetitive but a good rut to be stuck in, yes?
Norway’s a no brainer; not just for the courses Tom and I are running – a continuing Tom Parker Coaching / Liquid Satisfaction venture – but it’s been a while since I had a good creeking hit and Norway is a Mecca for spectacular gnar-boating.
The call of the Nile was not unchallenged by the screaming rationality of my bank balance. However it will be worth it simply for the first time I lead Adam and Tom down Silverback; “It’s just a big wave train” I’ll say nonchalantly, with a look of inane smugness on my face, as they follow me down down deep into hell’s jaws and wonder how long it’s been since they last took a breath.
Means of Production
The film will contain footage from the last 2 years of kayaking around the world and be chock full of extras including a behind the scenes ‘making of’ documentary. View the trailer at www.mopmovie.co.uk.
The Real World
And then I have to bite the proverbial bullet and take one small step closer to the real world. On September 1st 2008, I will begin a 1 year PGCE course in Mathematics and Outdoor Education at Bangor University. Not only is this a very exciting course for me to take part in but, living in North Wales, it looks like I will be getting in a fair amount of terrestrial boating over the next academic year!
