By Sarah Grigg

Last week was an epic one for Off the Grid Studios! Our team took awards in four categories at this year’s Fly Fishing Video Awards, sponsored by The Drake magazine and held at the 2016 ICAST show in Orlando.

Jungle Angler took the “Best Freshwater” category. The film represents part of a major media campaign, including a short film for the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T), a long-form film on DVD, a feature-length article in Fly Fisherman and full online social media coverage.

Technology is taking over. We’re being bombarded. That which was engineered to save us, is enslaving us. Put down your phone. Turn off the computer. And listen up. Read more

This is one of the largest campaigns we’ve worked on this year – and one of the most important topics we’ve endorsed. Take a moment and check out the website to learn more about the cause and get involved. The highlight of this campaign was getting an endorsement from Dave Matthews, and having him share the campaign on this social media to boost the publicity. The entire campaign was created from the ground floor (concept, copy, graphics, images, vid, etc) by the OTG team: musiciansforforests.com

The creation of the new Sturgeon Slayers website was fun and a great challenge. We were tasked with making this site as simple and minimal as possible, yet progressive and responsive to a number of devices. The key was to keep the one page format simple, yet bring in new-style elements to make it fresh and modern. We like it. Check it out sturgeonslayers.com

2016 Fly Fishing Film Tour Review

2016 Fly Fishing Film Tour Reviews

Ok, so the last place anyone is going to look for unbiased 2016 fly fishing film tour reviews is from the studio responsible for producing three of the films in the 2016 fly fishing film tour – but – we’re our own worst critics and are capable of giving appropriate critique of the media.

While last years show was criticized as being too political, conservation oriented and lacking the “fun” element thats drawn crowds in past years – we’re confident viewers will LOVE this years show. We will be attending and posting more review next week as we travel with the show in Seattle, Bend and Portland. But for now, here’s a little 3rd party review to keep things in check. Read more

OTG’s CARPLAND Awarded Movie of the Year and Best Story

MOVIE-OF-THE-YEAR_carpland

In 2014 members of the OTG crew set out to create what was then considered by most to be a crazy concept: a documentary fly fishing film about the carp. Yes, that’s right. Carp. Over the course of a year, team members Austin Trayser, RA Beattie and Steven Yochum traveled the USA filming passionate carp anglers around the states. From California to Illinois, and numerous locations inbetween, we documented some truly amazing locations. OTG’s Marko Milosevic created the killer 3d animated graphics, and Kevin Markis created the animated History of Carp for the film.
