Skydiving Cinematographer and Emmy Award winner, Joe Jennings (Pepsi "Goose", "Freefall Cars", George Bush’s skydive) released his new video "Good Stuff" on April 15. Good Stuff is a fresh and unusual perspective into the global sub-culture of extremists who thrive on the cutting edge of skydiving.
The video explores a variety of disciplines within the sport of skydiving with world champion formation skydivers, skysurfers, freeflyers, and B.A.S.E. (cliff) jumpers. And Hairball Stunts with flying cars, water heaters, motorcycles, golf carts, couches, a truck, an entire living room, and a jumper who freefalls without a parachute. GOOD STUFF is a roller coaster of three dimensional perspectives that show skydiving as it has never been seen before.
Joe Jennings is a four time world champion camera flyer who’s innovative techniques have won two Emmy Awards, a Cleo Award, First Place in the "Aerial" category at the Gravity Sports Film Festival, and First Place in the Extreme Games with skysurfer Rob Harris. GOOD STUFF documents the best of his work. Cost for the hour-long video is $25. For more information check out www.joejennings.com.
