Yeah, at first I was thinking I would be wanting a few minutes of my life back, but once it gets going, it's pretty awesome.  Some of those tricks definitely go in the "Don't try this at home." category.

Wow.

That was cool.

 

I'm amazed by people who have the guts to jump out of airplanes.  I'd faint before I could pull a chute.

 

 

I hope the dude freeclimbing at the end had a parachute in his pack.

What do you guys think: Are all this people from the video  adrenaline junkies, or they just trying harder to achieve something???

I think a Venn diagram would show that there's a huge overlap in those two catagories.

 

Super cool video!  I've shared it with a bunch of peeps.

Anyone know how this was put this together?  There are athletes from so many disciplines... but the quality of the images seems pretty consistent and blends well from one scene to another.

 

Did the maker take all the shots live, or capture them from the internet to splice them together to make this thing?   If one person/group used original footage for the whole thing, that's a lot of travel and $$ up front, so I'm skeptical of that.  Is there software that allows the color quality and lighting and so on to be matched if you stick together imagery from different sources like this?

I'm pretty sure its from a whole bunch of different video's, I recognized several of the clips for example the bikeing guy from these:

It's an amalgam of video captures, taken from the internet, that were spliced together. There's a brief caption that states this at the end of the clip. No credits to athletes, camera operators, musicians, and etc., just the way cool goods. The "maker" had nothing to do with any of the events displayed, just found the clips that he or she liked and spliced them together.

It's actually not as bad as you think as there is no falling feeling. That falling sensation in your stomach is caused by acceleration and since the plane is moving about 120-180 mph you don't accelerate just change your direction of travel. I have to say that my first jump was probably the biggest adrenaline rush I have ever had. The part under the canopy is just as much fun.

 

That foot volleyball sport is probably the craziest thing I have ever seen
