A LETTER TO OUR NETWORK

Hello friends, family, strangers, skydivers, BASE jumpers, people.

Please help us transfer the rest of Carl Boenish's BASE jumping films.

We are finally, after 5 years of working on our documentary Gravity, having a fundraiser. Why now you may ask? Because it's time to finish this project so that we can bring it to you, our audience. The first step is to finish transferring the footage from 16mm to HD for editing and posterity.

There is nearly 400,000 feet of footage in the Boenish archive. With our own funds we have already transferred Carl's skydiving films which will be released soon on DVD. Now we are aiming to finish transferring Carl's BASE footage.

Many of you have watched me creating this project in small bit's through the years. It hasn't been an easy journey, yet a profound and important honor. I have wanted to present the material in a way that is positive, and in harmony with Carl's vision.

The next step is to transfer around 90,000 feet of film as well as audio elements which will involve some restoration work. Once the BASE archive is fully transferred and restored, we plan on resuming our historical interviews, as well as film modern wingsuit flight. Meeting our fundraising goal will ensure we can continue the important work of restoring Carl Boenish's life work. If, with your help, we are able to surpass our goal, we have a shot at finishing the archival work, and may even be able to continue interviewing key figures from the world of BASE jumping. We have already interviewed many prominent BASE jumping pioneers, including Brian Lee Schubert, Mike Pelky, Owen Quinn, The Harrison Brothers, Phil Smith, and many others.

Thank you to our generous sponsors MORPHEUS TECHNOLOGIES, PHOENIX FLY, ProBASE World Cup, BLINK MAGAZINE, APEX BASE and my dad Stephen Strauch for their enthusiastic support.

Also, a huge thank you to Jean Boenish who has helped and supported this project from day one. And of course my uncle, Mike Allen, who was the inspiration for this project.

If you are looking to invest and get a return on your investment, we are happy to talk to you about this. We welcome collaborators and support of any kind.

All donations are deeply felt.

Thank you with everything I have,

THE FILM
Gravity is a non-fiction feature that captures what it feels like to jump off a building, cliff or bridge and walk away alive. It is about the essence of life, of freedom, of what it feels like, for a moment, to defy gravity, and to fly.

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 limitations. He religiously chronicled the early days of BASE in beautiful 16mm film, often with cameras mounted to the jumpers’ heads. He had previously shot such films as MGM’s Gypsy Moths and many revered skydiving films of his time. He saw BASE as the next amazing thing to film.

Carl Boenish’s complete and extensive archive of films of the early days of BASE jumping and skydiving will be utilized throughout Gravity to tell his incredible story and honor his amazing life's work.

DIRECTOR'S NOTES
My uncle Mike Allen was a BASE jumper and aerial photographer and it is through him that I entered the world of BASE jumping. My uncle, who died in a 1991 auto accident, was a well-respected member of the BASE jumping community. He learned some of what he knew about aerial photography from watching the films of the Father of modern BASE jumping, Carl Boenish. Mike Allen left behind a pile of his BASE jumping videotapes and films and it is from these labels and titles that I found the fellow jumpers Mike had known. I also discovered the sport of BASE jumping; it struck me as an expression of freedom and a celebration of life. I was astonished and brought to tears by the beauty of the footage.

Thus began a journey that would span over five years of shooting, researching and tracking down the pioneers of this sport. No books had been written about the subject and very little research or documentation was public at the time. In the process I discovered the core group of people that started the activity of BASE jumping. Carl Boenish was considered the most prominent inventor and the “Pied Piper” of the sport. I was enthralled by the story of individuals who push themselves to transcend limitations. Carl did not believe in man-made limitations. He believed BASE jumping was an expression of the human spirit. He was a visionary. Carl Boenish was also a filmmaker. He pushed his own physical limits to make films. He is an individual worthy of Werner Herzog, transcending the physical, to find the spiritual. He was flying. Carl wanted to share the joy of BASE jumping with the world.

Most of the BASE jumpers in my film would not consider themselves filmmakers, but they indeed are; often keeping documentation of their parachuting activities. A central premise of my film is that the BASE jumpers are photographing the film itself. Because of this, the viewer gets the feeling of being physically involved in every scene and every jump, watching the action unfold before him and creating a very direct emotional response. I love that cameras can be mounted onto jumpers’ bodies and I intend to make use of the creative angles this can produce. The jumper is falling next to a solid object; the visual language of acceleration is unforgettable. The sound of the human body falling though the air and gaining speed is unlike anything else.
