NJ filmmakers capture footage of the Passaic River

WAYNE - Two New Jersey filmmakers spent seven days along the Passaic River and captured images of the flooding in Northern New Jersey from a unique angle.

Wheeler Antabanez, of Montclair, and "Mad Mike" Holland, of Wayne, insist what they captured is from an angle that's never been seen before.

Armed with a tiny camera, they filmed themselves in dangerous situations. There is even footage of Mike living up to his nickname of "Mad Mike," as he tries to paddle against the current.

Their adventures have been preserved in a 20-minute documentary, and they are currently working on a full-length feature film.

After navigating the river for years, the filmmakers consider themselves professionals and do not recommend this to anyone, but they do hope people will watch their film and walk away with a greater appreciation of the river and its power.
