Skyliners - the New Funambulists

Funambulist: (fyo͝oˈnambyəlist - noun - A tightrope walker.

Skyliners is a beautifully shot short documentary about a french crew which have combined their loves of mountaineering and tight wire walking. The esthetic and feel is of extreme sports such as basejumping and snowboarding.
It is gorgeously shot and edited by Seb Montaz with helicopter shots and spectacular scenery as the guys rig their lines between the peaks of mountains.
It made my palms sweaty.

 You can check out the funambulist's blog here and to the director's awesome video blog here.

Also here is a trailer for a full length 40 minute doco by Seb Montaz called I Believe I can Fly (Flight of the Frenchies). You can download the movie from Seb's website.
