I like this idea, too. Heck, give me 5 or 6 barely legal babes and I'll be set for a show. I only have a 36' boat but remember, "it's not the size of the boat, it's the motion of the ocean!"

tomwatt 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.

bljones 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.

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

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

WHat about a film with trucks pulling sailboats? A million dollar idea!!! (I want half!).

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

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

I let a camera on board and this is what happened

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.
