I don't know if anyone has posted this yet, but this was shot at Skydive Dallas. Pretty cool.

The skydving was organized by Al Hively and Scott Latinis.

It was fun to watch this whole thing being organized. They all did a great job. Looks great.

From what I was told this was all done in a very short time frame. In a matter of weeks. So no time to build new jumpsuits. The skydiving part was done over two days, maybe three. I know it was done over a Saturday and Sunday not sure about Monday as I have to work weekdays.

But then again someone always has to come up with a negative critic.

Hmm.. apparently it wasn't a priority for Interstate Battery. I never asked about the jumpsuits. Never even thought about it till now.



i dare say Honda has a bigger advertising budget than Interstate batteires do:D:D

ha...started reading that and thought... I wonder if he knows that's her!

Edit to add- this was shot in 1 day. I wasn't on the jump but was there the day they did it.

I was on the jump (center of the S).
-it was planned in less than a week
-we shot it in one day, on a Sunday
-we were asked to use our own gear (in response to the jumpsuit comment)
-we did the skydive that IB wanted us to do, the formation of the word YES
-point is.....we did what we were asked/paid to do (what the customer wanted - in reference to the nothing spectacular comment)

It was a really cool thing to be a part of, we had a ton of fun that day

I guess some people are always going to take the first opportunity to criticize....for some reason it always surprises me, especially when it's completely uncalled for

The "nothing spectacular" was a comment, not a criticism. It wasn't an amazingly huge formation. It wasn't proxy wingsuiting, it wasn't high performance swoops.

It was a nice, well executed belly jump. It showed the kinds of skills a good jumper has. It is probably a step or two above what I could do.

I thought it showed skydiving in a way that we see all the time, but the average wuffo wouldn't realize is "normal."

And I think it was really cool that you got the opportunity to be a part of it.
