The Ridge is the brand new film from Danny Macaskill… For the first time in one of his films Danny climbs aboard a mountain bike and returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland to take on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.[…]
« Un dernier épisode intense pour clôturer comme il se doit la saison. Une nouvelle expérience aussi stressante que passionnante qui m’a permis de découvrir bien plus que de simples paysages. À chaque voyage, tu en découvres et en apprends surtout davantage sur ta propre personne! »[…]
Imagine being by yourself in the dead center of a 3,000-foot vertical cliff — without a rope to catch you if you fall. For professional rock climber Alex Honnold, this dizzying scene marked the culmination of a decade-long dream. In a hair-raising talk, he tells the story of how he summited Yosemite’s El Capitan, completing one of the most dangerous free solo climbs ever.
So after i lost my drone a month ago, in the same area where this film is being shot, i went back again after one month to search for the drone in the 2m snow. After 6 hours i was able to spot my drone out of the snow. It was so emotional. But i was not done yet, after i replaced my drone with my drone insurance, i went back after one week to the dolomities to continue what i have started, and made this end film project. How i lost my drone, how i found it, and what i have captured after that? You’ll find out in this video. Enjoy!
In 2017, when Alex Honnold made his stunning free-solo ascent of Yosemite’s El Capitan, he was taking an unimaginable risk: nearly three thousand feet of climbing without any ropes or safety equipment. But was the climb made even riskier by the filmmakers who accompanied him?
In “What if He Falls?” filmmakers Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin take us inside the process of documenting Honnold’s quest for climbing glory — and the ethical calculus of filming a friend who could, with the slip of a finger, plummet to his death.
