Transcendence Trailer

How awesome is this? :)

Over the past year and a half I have been working on a project exploring some of the psychology behind the extreme sports experience. While researching the topic I came across work by Dr Eric Brymer and began to read his thesis. His findings were so interesting that I decided to approach him about turning some of his work into a documentary. In May 2011 I left NZ to film and interview Eric in Australia and gathered what would become the structure to this film. I have worked with some amazing athletes including William Trubridge, Alison Gannett, Mike Abbott, Jokke Sommer and will be shooting with Vanessa Quin in the coming weeks. This is just a taste of what is to come in the film. Expect more interesting insights into what goes on in the body and mind of these athletes as they develop their skills throughout life all the way through their chosen extreme activities and see how they develop as a person as a result of it all.
This film is due to be released through a series of premieres in New Zealand in April. There will also be a premiere at this years Voss Ekstremsport Veko in Norway in the last week of June. We are also looking at dates and venues in California, Colorado, Quebec.
For more information on the film or if you are a company who wishes to sponsor this project please contact Josh at -

Thanks very much to everyone who has made this project happen! Without you I would not be able to share this film right now! Please share this with all your friends and family and help me spread the good word.

Daredevil base jumper breaks legs in mountain crash

More news channels are picking up on the accident:



Jeb Corliss crashes into Table Mountain

A YouTube user uploaded footage of Jeb accident, showing him clipping the terrain on a flyby past a ledge. Luckely he managed to deploy his canopy.

Jumper hurt in leap from Table Mountain

A TOP international base jumper has badly injured his leg in a crash-landing after jumping off Table Mountain today.

Jeb Corliss is revered by many as one of the world’s foremost base jumpers and wingsuit pilots, and successfully “flew” off Table Mountain last week.

Base jumping involves using a parachute to jump from fixed objects such as bridges, antennas, and cliffs.

Corliss, 35, was airlifted from the mountain by an Air Mercy Services helicopter and taken by ambulance to Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital.

The Californian’s friend, Joby Ogwyn, had already jumped when Corliss made his attempt.

A shaken Ogwyn said he could not explain what had caused the accident.

“It could have been a strange gust of wind; it could be that he got too close to the mountain,” Ogwyn said.

“I’m not sure what happened. I heard a sound – it sounded like Jeb hit a ledge, it sounded like he hit it twice, pretty hard.

“Apparently he’s speaking,” he said.

Metro EMS said Corliss had jumped from the Africa Face ledge and crashed at India Venster.

He had injured his lower leg and knee.

Base-jumper breaks his legs

A well known American base-jumper broke both his legs in an attempted jump from the summit of Table Mountain on Monday.

It was the second time in one week that Jeb Corliss attempted the daring feat.

Table Mountain National Park's Merle Collins said Corliss did not have permission to jump.

“We received a report that an accident occurred on the mountain, but discovered it was the same guy that based-jumped from Table Mountain last week without a permit,” she said.

Sebastian Invasion 2011

This is just a first edit of this video. I'll be making a few upgrades then re-uploading a better version, but this is good enough for now. Huge thanks to Jeff Nebelkopf, Taya Weiss, Richard Parkin, Pedro Silva, and Miles for the portions of video which aren't my own. A future version of the video will credit you all appropriately.

For my first (BEER) real video in the sport, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. Credit for that goes to DV, who has made some unbelievable tutorials for using lightworks beta. I couldn't have made this video without either the software or his insightful introduction to the program.

Skydive Surfcity "Doin Work"

his video was made to remind this staff how much fun we have together. Skydive Surfcity is located near Santa Cruz in Watsonville, Ca and lands their students onto the beach of Monteray Bay. Video is film threw 2011 season mostly shot by Matt Rosado and Volker Hagg. The edit was cut together by Connor Maxen and Matt Rosado. Enjoy the staff jumps and bloopers.
