This film could not have been made without the amazing people of OFSK(Oslo Skydiving Club).

After finishing our first project of 2013 "Juggernaut", we had absolutely no idea what we would do next. We took a 6 month break and did everything but making films. A lot of things where happening in our daily lives. We both had to complete high school and we both did. When the summer came we looked back at our five years of making films and wondered for a moment what would come next. We decided that the ideal project for us would be a film about skydiving. Thinking back at our childhood, nothing made us lift our heads more than watching a skydiver crossing the skies.

We started the shoot in july in Rena, Hedmark in Norway. We worked with the Norwegian skydiving club called OFSK. They gave us a lot of possibilities in therms of getting as close to the action that was happening on the ground and in the air. For the aerial perspectives we knew that we wouldt be able to get our DSLRs up in the air with the skydivers. We therefore used gopro material from the skydivers helmet cams in order to get in to the action. Wave Off would never have happened without the care and assistance given to us by OFSK and their jumpers. We met a lot of nice people there that made our job a lot easier. Whether they shared their own personal go pro clips with us or willingly stood up infront of the camera and became a part of Wave Off. Most of the go pro clips in the film was material we received from OFSK.

Even though we could`nt use DSLRS when shooting aerial of the skydivers, we managed to use a dslr(5D mkii) on a steadicam while in the back of an As350 (Helicopter) and that resulted in some shots that almost looks like they could have been shot with expensive equipment.

We spent four days living in a tent just a few feet of the runway. The good thing about small airports like this one is that there is almost no limit for how close you can get to the planes. One of the shots that i`m really proud of is the shot with the plane landing on the runway in the beginning of the film. The wing passes just about 3 feet away from the lens of the camera. So after a heated discussion between us and the pilot afterwards it all was worth it. I think that particular shot might become one of our most memorable clips in the future.

In editing Wave Off we had a lot of material to process. We had mounted gopros almost everywhere and acctually filled up a one terabyte hard-drive with clips. We decided early on that Wave Off would be less than ten minutes long because We believe that having it any longer than that would result in people losing attention. There was a lot of clips we shared in the trailers that didn`t make it in to the final cut of Wave Off. It`s of course a bit depressing not getting to show you everything we have shot, but it is better to only present the best and brightest rather than having large segments of the film filled with less interesting shots.

Wave Off is our final project of 2013 and it will probably be quite a while until we return again. The question is what are we going to do next? Thanks for watching Wave Off.
