This is the trailer for our feature length documentary about Jarrett Martin, a paraplegic skydiver & BASE jumper. Hear the story of a man who wouldn’t let anything get in the way of his passion. We are currently seeking distribution. Please send inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
Jarrett Martin may not have been born on a drop zone, but he was certainly raised on one. He achieved more skydiving goals before his eighteenth birthday than many do in a lifetime. His thirst for adrenaline led to more serious risks – BASE jumping, ground-launching, and speed flying. One day, the summer after high school, the parachute didn’t open. Now paralyzed from the chest down, and confined to a wheelchair, 21-year-old Jarrett continues to live an adrenaline-fueled life.
Sky High, a feature length documentary, follows him as he trains for the 2011 USPA National Skydiving Championship, in which he will be the only paralyzed competitor. Along this emotional journey, Jarrett rekindles his love for piloting, BASE jumping, and challenges the support of his closest friends and family.
Having worn a helmet camera on almost every jump, Jarrett has allowed us access to his story – through his eyes. Newfangled Studios has obtained hours of footage of his rise in skydiving, the tragic accident, and his arduous recovery. Our camera crew steps in during Jarrett’s triumphant return to the sport, witnesses his first BASE jump as a paraplegic, and ultimately covers his performance in the 2011 USPA National Skydiving Championship. His story is one of overcoming the odds and unfathomable bravery.
