Collab Project with Loading Docs

LOADING DOCS is a trailblazing new initiative co-funded by The New Zealand Film Commission and NZ On Air, and managed by production company Notable Pictures to fund, create and distribute innovative New Zealand documentary shorts.

With a healthy mix of imagination, balls and roughly remembered Newtonian physics, a kiwi bloke jumped off a bridge in 1980 and started what has become a world wide phenomenon. ‘The Jump’ is an origin story of Bungy jumping and its unsung creator Chris Sigglekow. Unearthed video footage from the 80s uncovers this amazing period of Bungy’s beginnings.

'The Jump' is a short documentary directed by Alex Sutherland and produced by Rebekah Kelly.

 

Hi,

This is an important story to tell for me. It’s an incredible piece of New Zealand history that has never been told, let alone seen, and there is a wealth of material and footage to be unearthed. Secondly, this is a personal story for me, I grew up close to the family and Chris is now my father in law. I’ve wanted to make this project for a while and this seems like the perfect time to do it. I’m really excited about creating this documentary, so I would very much appreciate your assistance with bringing this story to life.

Cheers,

Alex
