“Hang gliding is the ultimate realization of one of man’s oldest dreams, true bird like flight. No cockpit, no engines, no mechanical controls, just you, the wing and the air. This beautiful pastime has brought immeasurable joy to thousands of people that have been able to realize their lifelong dream of flight. Dreaming Awake is a web series that aims to showcase this by highlighting the unique people and places that make up hang gliding today. Hang gliders are colorful, elegant aircraft that operate in some of the most beautiful, natural environments in the world. This deserves documentation with a very high level of production quality, utilizing only high quality cinematic cameras and advanced stabilized aerial camera platforms. GoPros are excellent cameras for the money and ease of use, but we strive for something greater than your average youtube gopro flick.”
