Confluence Films, the makers of “Drift” and “Rise,” just announced the release of their third film, “Connect,” which will be available on DVD this fall. “Connect” will be another multi-segment collection of individual stories shot around the world and includes video of fly fishing in Japan, Maine, Cuba, Alaska, Yellowstone National Park, and Africa.
Confluence is announcing that they will once again offer early screenings of the new film to qualified conservation entities and organizations. With the new movie available to the public on DVD in early November, for the month of October, Confluence will offer retailers, groups, clubs, and other select entities the chance to exclusively premiere the new film in their area as a fundraiser for fisheries-based conservation projects. “With the first two films, the program that we established for pre-release conservation screenings raised over $50,000.00 for a number of different organizations and projects,” said Confluence’s Jim Klug. “With the new film, we plan on blocking off a month just before the release of the DVD where groups can premiere the film in their area and hopefully raise even more money for fisheries projects.”
ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
The Confluence Films team is comprised of three partners — Chris Patterson,
Jim Klug and Tom Bie.
Director and Cinematographer
Best known for his work in the realm of action sports, Chris has worked for the past 16 years as lead Director/Cinematographer of Warren Miller Ski Films. Chris's stunning visuals and unparalleled camerawork have been recognized by the advertising industry as well. As a result, he has shot major commercial campaigns for Buick, Ford, Nissan, the US Army, Navy Seals, Visa, Jeep, Toyota, and numerous other companies and corporations. As a documentary filmmaker, Chris has produced a number of award-winning adventure films and television programs throughout the world for OLN, Versus, National Geographic and NBC.

Founder and Director of Operations for Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures, Jim has worked in the flyfishing industry as a guide, sales rep, travel coordinator, and as National Sales Manager for both Scientific Anglers and StreamWorks. He has guided extensively in Montana, Colorado, New Mexico and Oregon, and has fished throughout the world in over 25 different countries. With a particular love of saltwater flats fishing, Jim spends a lot of time in the Caribbean, Central and South America, working with Yellow Dog’s network of lodges and guides. Jim lives in Bozeman, Montana.
Writer and Narration
As publisher and editor of The Drake magazine, Tom is certainly not a stranger to the flyfishing industry. Tom and Chris have worked together in years past creating memorable segments in the Warren Miller Film STORM while Tom was senior editor at Skiing magazine. Tom also produced the first full-length, non-instructional flyfishing film — Feeding Time, which was released in December of 2003 — and his writing has graced the pages of Men’s Journal, Outside, Powder (where he served as Editor), Ski, Skiing, and many other premier publications. Tom’s knowledge of flyfishing will lend to the creative content and editing of the film. Tom lives in Fort Collins, Colorado.
