The Reel Adventure Diaries Presents:

Under the Eye of the Jackdaw.

This is an exert from my short film following renowned climber and BASE jumper Tim Emmett. With his friend, guide and fellow jumper Jérôme Blanc-Gras, they attempt the first free ascent and jump from 'Sous L'Oeil des Choucas' a route in the valley of Fressiniere in the Southern French Alps.

In the film we see Tim and Jerome preparing for the climb and also taking part in the Mountain Academy for Mountain Hardwear. We get a glimpse into the world of an adventure athlete and a close look at what makes Tim Emmett tick.

The film was directed, shot and edited by me as part of the TRAD Film Competition.

The film has been an official selection at the Kendal Mountain Film Festival 2009 and the Vancouver Mountain Film Festival 2010
