Brief Explanation

This is a non-fiction film in which a life-risking stunt was performed. Patrick Walker, the holder of the Guinness World Record for a human passing through the smallest target, put on a winged suit and jumped out into the sky in Utah, USA. The target he aimed for was a small panel 1.2 meters high and 1.8 meters wide, placed at the edge of a huge cliff. Patrick made the target in one try, and the film depicts the meticulous preparations that the team went through, ending with the project members bursting in joy.


In order to convey that this is indeed a genuine challenge, the direction taken was not to show excessive drama, and place emphasis on the incredible amount of control the performers had over their own mental state. Amidst extreme tension, where the anxiety of the jumper crew that had arrived was obvious, the camera continued rolling, with permission. The most important thing was not to make Patrick, who was going to perform the stunt, nervous. And as a result of the extra care that was taken, the jump actually cleared the target in just one attempt.
