    "Love is the felt experience of connection to another being. An economist says 'more for you is less for me.' But the lover knows that more of you is more for me too. If you love somebody their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings. This shift of consciousness is universal in everybody, 99% and 1%."

    CHARLES EISENSTEIN is a teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution.

    The film maker:

    I have been filming the Skyliners on an incredible exploration into the world of free flight.
    Tancrède, Julien, Seb and Antoine are pioneers in ‘highlining’ - a vertiginous combination of climbing, slackline and tightrope walking.

    We travelled from our home in Chamonix to our training ground in the Verdon gorge, testing the limits for our ultimate goal...
    We rigged highlines on the skyscrapers of Paris, and finally came to the spectacular cliffs and fjords of Norway.

    Months of training led the Skyliners team to attempt their dream of complete freedom... the freedom of flight !

    More about the Skyliners team:

    Director/Editor: Sébastien Montaz-Rosset
    Sound design: by talented Michael Denny

  5. Having worked on-air in radio for a number of years, my brain is hard-wired for sound and in particular the voice. Words like gravitas, timbre and resonance are used to try sum up what a great radio voice is and the subliminal effect the voice has on the listener.

    When it came to shooting my final year film for college I wanted to get a grasp on all this. But the more I got into it the more the documentary was becoming just as much about Irish society and its voices.

    I mean, just what is the right way to announce a death notice?
    How would you keep the bidding at a cattle auction interesting?
    What’s the best approach to shifting 30 units of housing in 30 seconds of radio ad time?
    And why shouldn’t you sound too excited as a sports commentator if your local team score a goal in the first 10 minutes?

    I’m reworking the documentary at the moment and polishing it up, with grading yet to be done.

    Here’s a clip from it with thanks to Suzana Zalokar for her camera work.
