When the passion of a farmer meets the passion of a filmmaker...
Alan, a young italian farmer, who loves his job, has always dreamed of working with heavy machinery on big fields.
One day he decides to fulfill his dream and finds the cotton in Australia. (This film vimeo.com/10834256 called "He has a dream" helped him to get the job !)
Immediately, I advised him to buy a small HD camera and bring back the maximum of footage.
Also I gave him some advice on how to film. This was the first time he shot video.
After 9 months of hard work and loneliness, he returned tired but happy, rich in experiences and...a hard disc full of surprising images.
I was touched and inspired, not only by these images but also by the stories he told me.
I decided immediately to make a fast and concentrated summary of this adventure.
Bravo Alan ...cause you did it ! ;-)

In February 2011, the five times world champions Fred Fugen and Vince Reffett from Soul Flyers were invited to Melbourne to provide advanced 3D coaching to some of Australia's leading Skydive athlete talent.
The goal of the Training camp and the production were:
1. To increase participation in our sport.
2. Provide greater pathways for our elite athletes.
Hopefully this video will give all that view it a different perspective of what skydiving can offer. Hopefully it will provoke some necessity to learn to fly in our wonderful three-dimensional environment- The Sky!

This is the final chapter to a year of seasonal videos. All of the footage was shot in Colorado during the week my sister, got married. Our whole group of amazing friends flew out for the festivities...along with Dan Riordan, who helped film the entire week....so special thanks to him for filming throughout his vacation...without him donating his skills, this never would have happened...also, want to thank Jake Kahn for helping mix the audio.
