Paddle to Seattle: Journey through the Inside Passage will chronicle the progress of two intrepid adventurers paddling handmade wooden Pygmy kayaks from Alaska to Seattle. They navigated the 1,300-mile Inside Passage. From Alaska to Seattle, it's North America's only rainforest. There brown bears own the shores. Rain falls for weeks without rest. What's most unexpected are the surreal encounters with unexpected marine life. The film presents these interactions, in addition to interviews from peoples of the region. The driving force is the friendship and humor of the two friends. Written by J.J. Kelley
