Skyway Down "A Permanent Solution to a Temporary Problem" is a documentary about the people who end their lives by jumping off of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge located in Tamps Florida. This bridge claims more and more lives each year and has developed a "magnetism" to some people. Skyway Down will be a film of hope, Including interviews with suicide counselors, recovery divers, surviving family members of loved ones who have jumped, The Florida Highway Patrol bridge detail, and even a survivor who now has a wonderful life and a beautiful 3 year old son. Hann's Jones, the survivor is now in the process of creating a anti jumper railing system called the E.S.R. (Electro Safety Rail) This invention could be placed on the bridge and keep future jumpers from completing their act. This film will direct people in need to the proper resources available so they can get the help they need. Skyway down will remove the "Romanticism" of the bridge and guide those potential jumpers to a better way of life. After personally watching someone jump a while ago, Sean Michael Davis, a local award winning independent filmmaker decided to create a film to help future potential jumpers from ending their lives by this means. When this film is completed, Sean will submit it for distribution through Blockbuster, Amazon, Lions Gate and several independent film festivals as well as donate the film to the local suicide prevention centers to be used as a help aid for both counselors as well as those who may be considering suicide.
