I stopped cliff jumping at the age of 18 when I realized I had made it this far, and it probably wasn’t worth the risk. Now, I always get that terrible tingle in my feet when I see people doing outrageous things from steep heights.
Watching this video of BASE jumpers in Norway reminds me of the reckless freedom I enjoyed in my misspent youth. It’s liberating, breathtaking and beautifully shot. It’s a music video for the song “Last Walk Around Mirror Lake” by Boom Bip and remixed by Boards of Canada [Spotify Link] made by FroschYankee with scenes from the movie Adrenaline Rush– The Science of Risk.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
The film is described as more than a thrilling visual experience: “The film will educate audiences on the psychological and physiological forces that are at play in extreme risk-taking and on the physics involved in skydiving, base-jumping and their related activities.”
The film was shot in Eikesdalen, Norway. Enjoy the music video mashup here:
