J.J. Kelley & Josh Thomas join host Boyd Matson on the National Geographic Weekend radio program as they travel down the length of he Ganges river by rickshaw, rowboat and any other means necessary.
King TV television segment on the Paddle to Seattle, the incredible kayaking journey from Alaska to Seattle documented by the friends who dared to try it.
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve completed the edit for our newest film, Go Ganges! Two years ago we created our second adventure documentary Paddle to Seattle; the film was nominated for an Emmy and about 20 festival awards. Now we’ve got another doc in the can that we feel shows equal promise.
We’re just beginning to submit to festivals across the country. DVDs will be available on this site in a few weeks. But if you can, come on out for a screening; we’d love to see you there! We also challenge you to take a hands on approach to getting Go Ganges! to the masses, drop us a line and suggest a venue near you.
Go Ganges! follows an adventure by any means possible down the length of the Ganges River from its source high in the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal where it empties into the Indian Ocean. A cultural expedition: two seasoned adventurers take the cumulative skills learned over years of Alaska wilderness travel and apply it to a dramatically different natural wonder: the River Ganges, population 400 million. Living and traveling like the locals, they experience this river like it’s never been done before. It’s a very telling and honest story of an unparalleled river, but we make a point never to judge the conditions there, we just present it as we see it.
Here is a moment you didn’t see in Paddle to Seattle. Over the next month, we’re releasing some big developments at Dudes on Media. One of which is our new website, where we’ll be realeasing more of our favorite behind-the-scenes “Paddle to Seattle” moments. The new site will also be the official launch pad for our third adventure documentary, Go Ganges.
This video was shot before The Dudes departed for The River Ganges. Looking back, they had no idea what the adventures they lay ahead.
On our way down The River Ganges we encountered a terrorist attack in the holy city of Varanasi. Our hearts go out to all the families of those injured.
As part of our journey tracing The Ganges River, we decided to bike a 700lb rickshaw 500 kilometers. Great idea right?
