Off the Grid Studios

Off the Grid Studios is pleased to announce the release of the full-length cut of their film “NEXGEN.” Available now on Amazon channel

In “NexGen,” filmmaker RA Beattie tells the story of generational bonds and friendships formed through fly fishing. In the film, Beattie offers a new perspective, as the film is told from the point of view and with the narration of Jack Buccola — a 12-year-old angler from Bend, Oregon. The film follows Jack as he experiences living in a fly fisherman’s house, witnesses the impact of fires on his home waters, and explores new waters on a road trip with his father Ryan, friend Judd Field, and Judd’s father Pete. Throughout the journey, Jack grows to appreciate the steelhead of the Northwest, the native cutthroat trout found on the South Fork of the Snake River and other tributaries, and Jack also realizes the potential for more travel with a tying business.

“NexGen” was directed, edited, and produced by RA Beattie, produced and filmed by Bryan Gregson, written by Sarah Grigg and Tim Harden, filmed and edited by Will Phelps, and audio engineered by Troy Hermes, with still photography from Arian Stevens. Marko Milosevic contributed the graphics.

This project was a tremendous amount of work but was equally gratifying. It would not be possible without the teamwork from such an outstanding group of dedicated people. With support from the Orvis Company, Scientific Anglers, and WorldCast Anglers, the latest from Off the Grid Studios premiered on the 2019 Fly Fishing Film Tour. Thank you all for lending your dedication, creativity, and passion. Here’s to the next round!

July/August 2019

Here’s one from this summer – It’s great to see our underwater photography work as the lead image for an article on Iceland in American Angler Magazine. Underwater photography has been a big part of our work for many years. Each time we dip our camera underwater the anticipation is always as exciting as the first time. It’s one of those techniques that is always fun to do, fun to learn and fun to share.

We are pleased to see our work with the amazing folks at Schultz Outfitters in the new Fall issue of The Drake Magazine. It was an incredible few days of Michigan smallmouth bass fishing. Lucky for us, the timing was perfect for the short windowed frog season.

Big thanks to all those anglers who help make these images come to life, it takes a team effort!
