About

Zen and Adrenaline is a film about the peace and chaos in Hang Gliding.  The film will show how hang gliding is performed in the flat lands of Florida and the mountains of Tennessee.  It will detail the gear and training involved in the sport and how the pilot must come to trust both with his life.  

The film will be shot in the late summer in South Florida and the early fall in the mountains.  It will be primarily filmed in 3d to showcase the views that addict hang glider pilots to the sky.  Most of the film will be captured on multiple GoPro Hero3 cameras. 

The video is devoted to sharing the love of hang gliding and bringing it to a wider audience.  Hang Gliding provides the pilot with a peaceful and focused mind similar to that of meditation.  Hang gliding is mindful movement fueled by the invisible forces of nature.  To be an excellent hang glider is to be tuned in to the air and turned off from the rest of the world's problems. 

This is a journey into the sky on the wings of a kite which is propelled by determination and and lifted by accurately predicting the direction of unseen forces.  Hang Gliding is surprisingly accessible, easy to learn, difficult to master, and costs less per year than your daily cup of joe.  It provides the highest of rewards and constant challenges.  Modern hang gliders bear little resemblance to the dangerous kites of the 1970's.  This is a glimpse into modern recreational hang gliding.

Risks and challenges

Weather is the biggest obstacle to filming adventure sports. The schedule has been stretched out long enough to overcome weather limitations.

There is an inherent danger of injury or death involved with adventure sports. To overcome this factor, all available safety equipment will be utilized and highly qualified instructors will be sought.
