not sure if this works or not…….my intention is to show the inner turmoil between fear and belief in the skydiver. Fear of the unknown, the risks, the line between life and death. Belief that he can fly, that he’s invincible, that he will join the birds and soar above the earth.
His connection to his birdman suit and canopy is integral to the whole emotional experience. They spend hours carefully packing, checking, and checking the delicate layers of fabric before their flights – who wouldn’t, they can kill themselves with one crossed string, one bad fold.
