Not many people have heard of Daniel Fleury. He isn’t really part of a riding scene and he doesn’t seem overly concerned with upping his Instagram rep. If you expected his feed to be a run of extreme bike shots, you’d be surprised to find a view on the world based on natural beauty with a series of images that present a creative view on everyday things like foliage, ocean and…sky.
Daniel grew up in circumstances more likely to guide him into team sports than inspire an endeavor in bikes, but something drew him into the woods where he spent the better part of two years hand building a massive cluster of jumps known as ‘Laguna’. A line with features that reach for the tree tops and a coastal view that delivers breathtaking sunsets daily.

The Phenomenon „hysterical strength“ is a display of extreme strength by humans, beyond what is believed to be normal, usually occurring when people are in life and death situations. We witness a mother giving birth to her child. Rather than seeing things on a realistic level, we follow things happening on a more metaphorical side.The focus of the action is the challenge of birth, which presents itself as an extreme situation in which it becomes literally a matter of life and death.
BreakingPoint is my Diploma Project and a graduation short from the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
From the Idea to the final film it took about 1,5 years including half a year of preproduction with an extensive work in Animatics and Previz and about 8 months of postproduction.
A big THANK YOU goes to the great team and Filmakademie.
