Director Statement


With the concept in mind, we shot in one afternoon at a ski resort in the USA. Equipment was limited and, conceptually, I wanted the film to start in a very unimpressive way, to not make the film look immediately like a sports video. After we found a green screen studio we could borrow for 4 hours we suspended the actress with climbing gear put backward and made her turn around to simulate camera movement. The film was finished in 7 evenings just in time for a screening at Kino Montreal in 2013. The film was screened at a couple of sold out events with temporary music and it unfortunately took 2 more years to have a final soundtrack and a finished film I can publish.


Everyone wants to be free. Everyone would like to fly. I wanted to show someone pursuing danger for liberty. While a lot of sport movies achieve that just by showing the best athletes in the world excel in the most dangerous conditions, I wanted to expose a seemingly normal person to that danger. Danger that, with some signs and clues, would even seem surreal until it really gets into sci-fi territory. What happens though is that the danger is removed once the character jumps in the emptiness and what remains is someone flying and enjoying that liberty without fear in the most unpretentious way. If you could jump from space without danger, you probably would.
