"INNER CHALLENGE" - An Independant HD Production
HD TELEVISION SERIES
Breaking new ground. Discovering yourself. Conquering fear. Setting a standard for the extreme sports world and reality TV production. This season "Gulf Stream Challenge" sets sail for Cuba. Hurricanes, shark infested waters, giant waves, severe heat, darkness, all alone in the middle of the ocean on a board are just some of the fears that our brave contestants will face as they attempt to cross the western part of the Devil's Triangle. Not by boat, nor raft, but powered by their spirit, determination and their perseverance to succeed.
This event is one of many new challenges taking place today as individuals or organized teams seek to push their experiences, abilities and existance either physical, spiritual or emotional. Examining the many people behind these challenges, seeing their stories and accomplishments is what 'INNER CHALLENGE" is all about.
For the first time ever documented two teams of paddleboarders, a four-man, and a four-woman team will attempt to set a world record by paddling from the coast line of communist Cuba to Fort Zachary in Key West, Florida. They will paddle 112 miles in Open Ocean throughout day and night until they reach the shore of the U.S.
Two camera crews on-board two chase/support vessels will capture every important minuet of the expedition using state-of-the-art SONY 900 HDTV cameras and 16mm film in the water. The planned production will be edited into numerous TV programs including:
* 2-hour HDTV special for the new series "INNER CHALLENGE" airing soon and down converted for re-broadcast on regular TV for programs such as, DISCOVER, TRAVEL, ESPN, etc.
