HOPPTORNET (TEN METER TOWER)
By Axel Danielson & Maximilien Van Aertryck

Format: Short
Duration: 16 min
Release: 2016

A ten meter diving tower. People who have never been up there before have to choose whether to jump or climb down. 

The situation itself highlights a dilemma: to weigh the instinctive fear of taking the step out against the humiliation of having to climb down.

TEN METER TOWER is an entertaining study of the human in a vulnerable position.
