Freediving film Free Fall was directed by Guillaume Néry and Julie Gautier and produced by Bluenery. The film itself was shot over seven years ago but is still considered to be the gold standard of film making for freediving.
It may be surprising then, to learn that the film (the first for Néry and Gautier) was not the product of careful planning, location hunting, expensive equipment and film crews. Instead it was little more than a holiday film that rightly attracted phenomenal success – and a discovery of a love of film making for the couple.
Of the freediving film Free Fall, Gautier says “This was my very first experience with a video camera. This came as a revelation of my filming skills and love at first sight for photo and films.”
