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.
