If life passes us by faster than we expect, is there a way to slow it down? We explore the art of making every minute count by following BASE jumper Simon Guthrie as he is walking out of his job and up a mountain in New Zealand. While few of us have the skills or the guts to jump off the edge of a waterfall with a parachute, it’s good to occasionally stop and think what makes us feel truly alive and ensure that the life we live is really what we want. We explore this serious matter in a light-hearted way in the latest instalment of our adventure film series “Beyond the Action”, filmed against the stunning backdrop of Rob Roy glacier near Wanaka and featuring a suitably bad-ass G-Class.

I actually just love the integration of the car and moving past it in such a fun, unexpected way. Really lovely.
