We have an amazing opportunity to support a project that will give the world a first window on the birth of of BASE jumping, right here in Nor Cal. The story of Carl, beautiful and tragic, is one all jumpers have heard, I can't wait to experience it the way he chose to share his dream, through his cameras.
Marah Strauch and Eric Bruggemann are producing Gravity
In the early eighties Carl Boenish coined the acronym “BASE” (standing for Buildings,
Antenna, Span, and Earth, the objects jumped) and invented a sport. Carl was the catalyst
behind modern BASE jumping; an electrical engineer and filmmaker who believed that
BASE jumping would allow mankind to overcome artificial physical limitations. He
religiously chronicled the early days of BASE in beautiful 16mm film, a filmmaker who filmed himself inventing a lifestyle and a sport.
