Sam Davis admits an eight-hour tinny ride up the Manning River might not be everyone's idea of exhilarating viewing, but he's hoping a few people will connect with the experience.
Sam and his business partner Spencer Austad intend to travel upstream from Manning Point to Tinonee this Sunday, April 26 and broadcast the entire journey to Facebook.
The project is an experiment in slow TV, a style of television that has proven extremely popular in Norway.
It seems like a pretty strange concept, but it's a way of looking at things differently.Sam Davis
In short, the concept involves a continuous single camera shot of an ordinary event - such as a train trip or a wood fire - shown in its entirety.
For Sam and Spencer, who run the livestream video production company Big Spin Productions, it will see them mount a broadcast quality camera to the front of their tinny and then stream the sound and vision to a server that uploads it to Facebook.
"It seems like a pretty strange concept, but it's a way of looking at things differently," Sam said.
He believes a big part of slow TV's appeal lays in its relaxing qualities.
"It gives the viewer the opportunity to watch it how they want to watch it," Sam said.
"It provides a kind of meditative experience."
The pair's desire to try the concept comes from the fact that Spencer is Norwegian.
"He's always known about it and wanted to do it," Sam said.

And for Sam himself, who has recently relocated to the region from Sydney, he's keen to try out the concept while also seeing a waterway he's never been on before up close and personal.
"I'm really intrigued," he said.
The livestream will start at 10am on Sunday and finish at around 6pm.
