The mind’s eye of the man who has been described as ‘Britain’s greatest BASE jumper’ as he prepares for his descent.
It’s said that the highest risks come with the greatest rewards and BASE jumping is surely the absolute pinnacle of that sentiment – the perfect balance between calculation and total lack of control. So what does it take for someone to commit everything to one of the world’s most dangerous sports?
Tim Howell is a man who lives his life on the edge, peering from some of the world’s highest peaks before he inevitably surrenders to gravity.
“You can put as much effort into the preparation as possible But until you’re there at the exit point you don’t know where it’s going to go,” says Tim.
With over 600 jumps under his belt the former Royal Marine Commando takes us on a journey of pursuit, a pursuit of precise gear preparation, mental strength and ice cold logic. This cinematic take on the sport has a bubbling intensity, honing in on the visceral beauty and disarming dangers of the mountains.
I think the public see it as a stunt, something that’s very
uncalculated. But that’s very far from the truth.
