YORK, NEW YORK (March 10, 2004) -24FPS PRODUCTIONS, INC,
and AIR SEA LAND PRODUCTIONS INC have wrapped final production on
two breakthrough high definition documentaries, On a Single Breath
- The Extreme Sport of Freediving, and FreeFlight.
The two one-hour programs, produced for VOOM's Rush HD Network,
explore the outer limits of extreme sports, from the underwater
world of freediving to the untested horizons of free flight in paragliders
Green-lighted in early November, the production of the documentaries
were shot entirely in high definition, and encompassed locations
in Kona and Kauai, Hawaii, Miami, Florida and Aspen, Colorado. The
programs are currently in heavy-rotation on Rush HD. For program

a Single Breath followed the quest of 52-year
old Annabel Briseno as she attempted four world records in one week.
As the week unfolds it becomes clear that a world record in free
diving is a precarious agreement of mind, body and sea that sometimes
the philosophy of maximizing the pilot's connection to the heavens
by minimizing the aircraft fuels an incredible visual experience
along the cliffs of Hawaii and the altitudes of Aspen. The host,
conventional pilot, was treated to the most thrilling flights of
her life by stripping away the airplane and experiencing flight
in a new and intense way.
"It was an incredible feat to pair these captivating stories
with such stunning visuals, only possible with high definition,"
said Thomas Strodel, Producer and Director.
The camera crew, led by the Director of Photography and Producer
Anthony Lenzo, created the rich look and feel for the documentaries
using some of the most advanced and sophisticated camera technology
available today. “These two documentaries literally tested
the performance of our HD gear in some of the roughest applications....we
never had a moment of down-time because of equipment failure”
- Anthony Lenzo.
"The productions were a tremendous challenge that was met by
a very dedicated crew. The fact that we were able to complete them
in such a limited time-frame is testament to our team*s abilities,
dedication, and belief in the projects," said Strodel.
The programs will be entered into documentary festivals.
