For independent filmmakers making non-profit films budgets can be non-existent. Inevitably, these filmmakers need to add music to their films but their budgets limit their options due to the high cost of licensing.

Now non-profit filmmakers have a free, professional music resource: Moby.

Yes, that Moby.

Kiss the Water

"Kiss The Water," follows renowned fly fishing expert Megan Boyd, living remotely in Scotland's northern highlands, whose self-taught and made fishing flies have brought her great acclaim and reverence, making her something of a legend among fly-fishing enthusiasts. With admirers as distinguished as Prince Charles, among others, she has throughout her life become internationally renowned for her startling abilities, which Steel documents through interviews, animations, and stunning images of the landscape that she calls home.

He is compelled to return to the rivers of Normandy

Award winning production company Uncage the Soul has launched an indiegogo fund raising campaign for a documentary film about Frank Moore. If they can pull off their lofty fundraising goal this promises to be a one hell of a film.

Mending the Line is a documentary about Frank Moore, a 90-year old WWII veteran and fly-fishing legend, returning to Normandy to fish the rivers he saw as a soldier.

Tough as nails, gentle as a poet, and determined as a badger, 90-year old Frank Moore loves to fly-fish. A World War II veteran, in 1944 he landed along with some 150,000 other troops on the beaches of Normandy, France for the D-Day Allied invasion. Despite the cacophony of war around him, the avid, young fly fisherman couldn’t help but notice the productive fisheries on the rivers he and his fellow troops crossed as they made their way into occupied France.

Frank's lifetime accomplishments as a fly fisherman, conservationist and a veteran have earned him many awards, including the prestigious Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor, and recent induction into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame. Moore has guided and fished with actors, congressman and executives over his storied angling career. He built and was the long-time proprietor of the world renowned Steamboat Inn along the North Umpqua River. Now, reflecting on his life, he is compelled to return to the rivers of Normandy, this time armed not with a gun, but with a fly rod and reel. 

This documentary project will profile Frank Moore's inspiring and dynamic life history and follow his return to France to fish the rivers that he crossed so many years ago as a 21-year-old soldier amidst the devastation of war. There are few veterans in as good health as Frank; far fewer who have the courage and ability to travel back to France to see the war grounds of their past. In May 2013, the Uncage the Soul Production team will travel to France with Frank and his wife of 70 years, Jeanne, traversing the rivers and World War II landmarks of Normandy. The production team will shadow Frank's journey, capturing the raw emotion and experience of a lifetime to be found in Frank closing this book he began writing on June 6, 1944.

An award winning film production studio, Uncage the Soul specializes in outdoor adventure documentary, having produced projects featured at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, Mountainfilm, the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, and broadcast on National Geographic and the Discovery Channel. The team is comprised of world renowned filmmakers and photographers, bringing a unique and beautiful perspective to storytelling.
