Banff, BASE Jumping, Breaking News, Climbing, Film preview / 04.04.2011
Adventure movies don't get a lot of airtime on TV. And fewer still get tapped for major awards. But Sender Films' feature Fly or Die has been nominated to receive an Emmy for Outstanding Camera Work. Shot on location under precarious circumstances of extreme heights, this film defies the challenges of rigging and equipment placement to make for one the best depictions of sport in 2010. "It’s a great validation to be nominated for the sports Emmy alongside major events like the world cup and the Olympics," said producer Peter Mortimer. "It shows that even with our small guerilla crews we can capture some of the great sports moments of the year."
