Video: Follow Your Fears - BASE Jumping From A Motorcycle
This short documentary, just six-and-a-half minutes in length, follows professional motocross rider Brad O'Neal as he chases his dream of jumping a motorcycle so high that he can BASE jump from it. Early on, he says that he approached numerous extreme sports companies for backing, but they all turned him down, so he decided to go after his goal completely on his own. While the video is obviously about that jump, it has a much deeper theme as well. Namely, it is about embracing the fear that comes along with chasing your dreams and passions, as that fear can help propel you to your ultimate goal. This is really a fantastic short film, and it is another video you don't want to miss. Very well done.
