Kayaking with the Stars

Camera ready kayak.
 My kayaks have become stars for television. They were used by Windsong Productions in a commercial being filmed on Lake Natoma.  The production crew was working on an upcoming TV spot promoting air quality for the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District.
 Before going out on the water, crew members outfitted one kayak's bow with a camera. Actors then paddled across the lake in tandem of each other to create the shot.  An aerial drone with camera also hovered them to provide extra footage.
 In my tandem kayak, I paddled around the photographer so he could position the kayaks in the shot he wanted. It was all filmed during sunset to furnish the best light.
 So look for my kayaks paddling through your TV screen some time soon.
