Fishful Thinker and All Terrain Studios have been teaching the world to FISH BIG for 17 seasons. Originally, the 13-episode seasons aired on the Rocky Mountain regional cable channel, Altitude Sports Network, before being picked up by the international cable channel, World Fishing Network (WFN).
Fishful Thinker’s approach is unique in that he shoots each episode in just one day with the goal of teaching us new techniques with our existing gear that help us adapt to existing conditions.
Sometimes we’re “blessed” with four hours of footage, other times, we only need to trim down 1-1/2 hours of footage. Strategically placed “fast forward” graphics and cross dissolves indicate the passage of time, bloopers play during the credits, a cooking segment is sometimes added, and a Fort Collins, CO band supplies the soundtrack to this 30-minute program.
We started producing the show using Apple Motion and Final Cut Pro, then migrated to Adobe After Effects and Premier a few years ago.
