Director Statement

Hanging and Gliding is my first short film, so I wanted to blow it out of the water with some stunning scenery. My neighbor is a hang glider and I knew he could show me Santa Barbara like I'd never seen before. He flies alone often but teamed up with another glider for this film that shows their friendship in the air.
