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!
There are thousands of people that are exploring some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. This chapter we will take you to Norway Switzerland and France where people are jumping cliffs as high as 6,000 feet.
Experience Zero Gravity will hopefully provide you with the feeling and the emotion that we feel when we think about the experience of Base Jumping in the most scenic locations of the world.
We hope you can see this world from our eyes.

We are very proud to be working with the some of the worlds most talented Skydive, Base Jumping and Wingsuit athletes. Our aim through this video is to showcase their work and open the doors for other athletes and filmmakers and provide opportunities for greater exposure. This is The INFINITY LIST Mission and we do it in eight adventure sports categories. It's what we do.
I wanted to take a new perspective with skydiving, and ask the simple question "Why Do You Jump".
From jumpers who have made a career from the skydive industry, to some of the best skydivers in the world. Why they jump and how it feels are given a unique insight. Coupled together with some of my favorite skydive shots from the last year, i hope to bridge the gap between the jumper and the non-jumper.
Many thanks to everyone who contributed time, footage and made the jumps happen.

"In life it’s our choice whether we laugh or cry – and I chose to laugh”
One Step Beyond takes us behind the scenes for a close up look at the lives of people
involved in extreme sports.
Géraldine Fasnacht, world-renowned snowboarder and base jumper, invites us into the small and close-knit community of today’s real life supermen - wingsuit flyers...
We join her on a rollercoaster ride across the full spectrum of human emotions, catapulting from total euphoria to devastating loss, living life at full force and in glorious technicolour.
Until one day, out of nowhere, a dramatic event changes the course of Géraldine’s life and forces her to reconsider her chosen path. In the face of tragedy, she decides to pick herself up and get back on the ride, to be swept up in a whirlwind of adrenaline.
This bare bones, honest account gives us a window into the lives of ordinary men and women who have chosen to take an extraordinary path in life.
Fasten your seat belts, we hope you enjoy your trip!
