The Way We Live - A Short Film, Whitewater Kayaking in Maine

The Way We Live is a short film that was presented at the Maine Outdoor Film Festival. Featuring whitewater kayaking in Maine, The Way We Live is a compilation of video captured by several different whitewater kayakers across the state. The film was compiled and edited by Taylor Walker solely for the Maine Outdoor Film Festival as a way to shine some light on the whitewater community of Maine. Maine is a special place, full of awesome people and majestic rivers, if you have never traveled to Maine it's worth the journey. We hope you enjoy this film!

Big thanks to those that contributed footage to this project and a special thanks to Miles Puleio, Mitch Noddin, Mike McVey and Pat Mullin for helping with the final edit and putting in some late nights to make it all come together.

A special thanks to Archnemesis for being the only band that didn't demand absurd amounts of money for use of their tracks in this film. Their music is awesome, look them up!
