I personally have never understood the whole 'reality tv'. Seems like a paradox to me.

However, I am not as negative on it as the others here. I do wish you luck. I would be for anything that promoted our sport/passion. I think you will find that reality-liveaboard with a family is the same as with a house. Life is life whether it floats or is on dirt. I will say that I would not trade it for a dirt home, neither would my wife. You should see our backyard!

And as others have said, folks that chose this lifestyle aren't likely to want to submit to the intrusion.
I was watching a movie that wanted to have teenagers on a boat making stupid teenage mistakes. When faced with the problem of space that you mentioned them simply went with a larger boat.

The weak plot explanation stood out the whole time I was watching. Hard to buy into characters when they were so out of place on a multimillion dollar yacht, but I think the movie made money so who cares.

Which is why a manufacturered show is better. The time for reality shows has passed, Survivor is a decade old, they are so naughties.

Sailing does offer great stuff to a movie, background changes all the time, drama is one weather report away, people do have to get along, and it takes some skill to do. Not sure why there are not more Sailing TV shows. Must be as you say too hard to shoot on the cheap.

Have faith that the oceans are going to rise and flood the world, that plague and pestilence brought on by Climate Change is going to punish us for not believing. Please do as they say it is our only hope. :P

agree, only a crazy person would let a camera crew on board.

I let a camera on board and this is what happened

dylan, if what they were proposing was anything like what you have created I would be the first to watch , volunteer and promote it....unfortunately I don't think that is what they are after, hope I am wrong . There is definately not enough high quality and entertaining sailing films available. Just wish you would stop with the trucks already and get some more of your terriffic sailing films of your circumnavigation posted , I have watched all of your others more than a few times already .

I think they should take the deckhands from The Deadliest Catch and buy em a new St.Francis 50 and turn em loose in the Caribbean in the off season. Stock it with booze and cigarettes.

Deckhands Gone Wild.

Follow the hilarious antics of our pasty white, hungover, tattooed, momentarily rich Alaskan fishermen while they bounce off rickety wooden docks and coral heads in a fiberglass multihull with sails trying to give crabs to peaceful, "Green" Birkenstock wearing liberals...

Two Americans move to the TCI.

Now I think we are on to something, all we need to do is change a few players, basically fewer guys, more girls.

My film about big trucks in western canada on you tube gets 50,000 hits a day - netting me about $1 per thousand. I get paid for the 0.5 per cent of viewers who actually click on an advert.

Then sailing in winter

YouTube - www.keepturningleft.co.uk - winter sailing - wonderful

gets 5,000 hits in a year

I know which is the better of the two films - but more people like trucks than like sailing.


So, I either have to find another revenue model to support the sailing films - or I need to spend more time with my lens pointing at trucks

The web gives a real verdict on the demand for diferent types of work.


However, the whole micropayments for specialist films is turning out to be a most enlightening experience.


Any suggestions about widening the appeal of ktl films gratefully received


Dylan

you could be sneaky and work the search engines by changing the ktl name to "Keep Turning Left...NOT the Dale Earnhardt Story."

Seriously, I am quite surprised that ktl has generated so few hits.

Maybe you should do a film about a boat that hauls a truck around - unload it at various islands and drive, then reload and sail.

And I like the Deadliest Catch Gone Wild idea... just bring the crew down, and ship a cadre of spring break ladies down for the trip. Instant success!
