This documentary needs to be filmed in Full HD cameras, 3 are needed, for there will be air shots simultaneously with land shots and by boat. There will be also interviews with people who were young in 1954 and they lived the destruction of their communities, their villages were flooded in 1957.
We need to have comedians in the role of the main characters, like De Courcelles, Frontenac, De La salle, Talon and so forth, these acters do cost a lot, and also we have to provide them with the suits and accessories, rifles canoes, tents and so forth.
There will also be some CG (computerized generated images) that will show the devlopment of the canals or channels, reconstitution that can't be made in real.
There are 10 museums devoted for this maritime era, 3 in the USA and 7 in Canada. This needs to be shown and interviews with curators, explaining the 5 W's (What, Why, Where, Who and When) for all to understand.
As an example, the boat evolution, it started with canoes than rabaska, batteau came after and followed by Durham boats, than Barkentine came along with the 3 mass, steamboats with waterwheels than the propeller, ending with diesel boats. The size varied through the years, same with the channels, canals and locks.
The area that this documentary will cover is about 3 500 Km. From Montral to Chicago, passing through all the existing canals and locks of the St lawrence sayway.
