FILM a video of youself SKYDIVING for MOVIE Can't Post

Hey guys,

I was wondering if any of you who are up skydiving all the time would be willing to film a video of yourself skydiving for a movie I'm making - I would just need you to say something on camera right before jumping off, and film that and part of the fall. That would be amazing!

Thanks for your help! Smile

Well I can't pay much since I've already spent a lot for this project, but I figured if you guys are up there with cameras anyway it'd be easy. I can pay $15. I just need you to say two sentences on the plane before the jump, and film jump and part of the fall, and one sentence after landing. You don't even have to edit the video and can send the raw footage. My friend just sold his business and is retiring, and we're putting together a movie featuring videos from people around the world for his retirement party. It would be a great help and you would provide some laughs at the party! Thanks! Smile

Well you can always add subtitles to it, besides there is so much noise in a 182 that I'd have to yell anyway. Also you could make it truly unique/exotic by having it all in an incomprehensible(foreign) language.

Haha well we have some in foreign languages already, I'd like this to be in English. But that's true I'll probably need to add subtitles.

My Helmet/cam setup cost about $2,500. It cost me about $400 to keep all my reserves packed and in date. A plane ride to altitude is about $25. If I have a cutaway and loose my main..... there goes about $2,000.00. Gas to and from the DZ, USPA membership, insurance, etc.....

You can understand, then, why your offer of $15 is almost laughable?

That aside, I'll try to send you something if you contact me.

This is one of the silliest requests I have ever seen here. Laugh But, I guess there's a sucker born every minute. Crazy

Be awfully difficult to film myself doing a skydive. There was that one time I hired a cameraman. That cost $100.

I prefer this entry.

All he wanted was a quick clip for retirement party, say something before jumping and after landing.

Yip, and most regular jumpers have camera anyway. Skydivers are getting greedy turning down free beer moneyUnsure

So give us the sentences.... I would like to hear what they are.

And most people don't film themselves, unless handy cam for tandem.

Just a simple greeting to the guy retiring, before and after the jump, nothing super fancy.
