It started with a fish, but has become so much more!

This is an Adventure Film about catching one of the most elusive fish in the sea. But what its really about is chasing your dreams.

We hope to inspire many people with our documentary. We want people to go out and chase their Grande! What is your Grande? Maybe it's a trip you have always wanted to take. Maybe you’ve wanted to start a creative project or build your own business but never believed it was actually possible. Maybe you’ve wanted to pursue "THAT" girl or take a leap of faith in hopes that "IT" will work out? Are any of these your Grande, or is it something else?        

In our film, the "Grande" is a large Roosterfish:  40 pounds or more of fighting, un-yielding wild animal in a pulsing surf.

"In Search of Grande" provides an up close and personal perspective of what it really takes to find and catch these fish.  Both the failures and the successes are included. When we began filming our project, we decided to let the story unfold organically. Prior TV/Movie/Web content concentrated mainly on the fishing side of chasing Roosterfish and not much else. "In Search of Grande" has captured so many additional adventures, happenings, places, and people true to the real Roosterfish experience. This gives a great deal of entertaining color to a traditional fishing story. We have captured real people doing real things, taking on the challenge and dealing with surprises and failures along the way to achieving success, which is a great message for all audiences. We want to leave the viewer hungry for personal achievement and motivated to tackle all obstacles along the way.

A natural story arc evolved with early "almosts" and total failures as our quest unfolded. Ironically, the star of our film decided not to show up until our final day of filming. When we realized how the two weeks unfolded we were amazed. We knew our unscripted adventure was truly special.

We know our project will inspire others to get off the couch, get outside, and chase their Grande, whatever it may be!
