Quietwater Films got its start in fall 2006 in the remote midwestern burg of Madison, Wisconsin, mainly due to a chance encounter between Jeff Bach and Darren Bush that turned into a long conversation about instructional videos. I am Jeff Bach. For the most part I'm behind the scenes. Darren is the Darren Bush whom you will see as the host of the first two DVDs we have made, "paddling the solo canoe" and "paddling the recreational kayak".
Darren and I got to talking one day last summer and found we had several things in common. Being on water was one of those common interests. We're both also avid "do it yourselfers". So with water and a DIY attitude in common, we decided to form Quietwater Films and go about producing content that we thought people would be interested in viewing. In our opinion, too much of what's out there in paddlesports media is focused on cliff jumping kayakers with pink mohawks, a death wish, and bad music. We think there is much more to paddling than that so called "extreme" style of paddling and we hope to show some of it to you!
