Proposal Video for Jay Cochrane Documentary

Hey guys, just thought I’d give you a little look at a project I’ve been working on off and on for a few months now. The film is a yet-to-be-titled documentary chronicling world renowned wire walker Jay Cochrane’s attempt to walk across Niagara Falls on a tight rope. It’s a much discussed topic around these parts (I live fifteen minutes away from the falls) and is turning out to be an interesting little story, especially with tourism in the falls facing some pretty harsh lows. I hope to document the entire process, from proposal to permission (hopefully) to performance.

The following is a proposal video I put together to send off to Mr.Cochrane. Thankfully he was very enthusiastic about the project and looks to be on board. So here it is for you guys to see. Still a work in progress, and cut together from only two interviews…this video is merely an example of the sort of tone/style I’ll be shooting for. Please feel free to share your thoughts. Any comments would be much appreciated. (Thanks to the wonderful services available at, this video is also made available in 720p HD by following THIS link!)
