When We Were Knights

Starting a new section called INSPIRATION. I’ve been curating one of the biggest channels on Vimeo for years now, and I usually just post all the stuff I like on there. It’s called AWESOMENESS and if you like what I like, don’t click it unless you wanna waste a few hours being inspired. Decided that I wanna blog about the videos and filmmakers that take it to another level. No better way to start this shit than with “When We Were Knights”. I’ve got the attention span of an ant, so when a video that lasts more than a minute can thrill me till the end, you know we’ve got a winner. This one lasts almost 10 minutes and not only did I watch it till the end… it gave me sweaty palms, goosebumps and tears to my eyes as well on top. A breath-taking story about two friends. How can you express everything that you want to somebody you love, knowing that if you don’t, that might be the last opportunity that you have? That is a reality that we all face, but for BASE jumpers, the risk of death sometimes results in something amazing and unexpected – love. This is the real story of a pure love between two friends in the face of risk and tragedy.
