The Burj Al Arab (Arabic: برج العرب,"Arab Tower", also known as "Arab Sail") is a seven-star hotel located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. At 321 m (1,053 ft), it is the fourth tallest hotel in the world. The Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m (920 ft) out from Jumeirah beach, and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. It is an iconic structure whose shape mimics the sail of a ship.

A really dramatic piece developed solely for online release.
In this spot our hero is seen walking out onto the Al Muntaha restaurant atop the Burj Al Arab and then performing a high dive, twisting as he goes we step in and out of the hotel highlighting it's beautiful architecture both inside and out.
This was shot on Red and Red Epic over a 3 day period, combining use of a green screen studio, a 5m high diving board and of course the Burj Al Arab.

"By the end, as I headed out from the screening, trying to walk straight after being pummeled by what I had seen, the only thought going through my head was that the trailer did not do its movie justice." - Mark Quail, skistarmovies.com/review/all-i-can
The Sherpas are proud to present All.I.Can: a two-year feature film project that fuses our passions for riding and exploring the mountains with our potential to help the environment. The film strives to unite global mountain culture and bind us together as the leaders of a revolution. We must be inspired to do all we can for the environment, and we must learn how to take that first tiny step in the right direction.
