This short profile film on Nicholas DiChiara is the second of a series of three mini-documentaries that I took as a personal project. Nicholas is a talented metal artist from Philadelphia, from his small shop in Fishtown he makes beautiful custom made furniture, sculptures and stylish lighting fixtures designed and built with a modern industrial look.
"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!
This full length documentary will be available on my blog from march, 8th sebmontaz.com

Created to mark the launch of Spanish designer Emilio De La Morena's SS13 collection, Abbie Stephens' film plays light against dark to accentuate the textural details and silhouettes across the range. Drawing inspiration from the themes of memory and perception that Emilio used as the basis for his new pieces, Abbie creates and inverts worlds to play with the line between imagination and reality.
