Above All Else is based on Dan Brodsky – Chenfeld’s book Above All Else. Dramatic real life story of falling madly in love with your dream. Then using that passion to overcome the massive obstacles that appear in the journey of realising it. This is that story.
This documentary was made possible by Frank Casares who believed in us and funded the project. We had a small crew of 5 people and shot on a RED epic, RED dragon, 5D Mark ii and the Inspire Copter. The biggest challenge was the slow motion skydiving scene which was filmed by Craig O’Brien. Those were shot on the RED dragon at 200 fps. Due to wind, we only had 4 jumps to make it happen but Craig and skydivers Brad Patterson and Dalten Kadow nailed it.
