Christian Tillmanns sent us this info about the documentary he's filming on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II – about why people choose to fly.

“I thought it might be interesting to you that I am currently shooting a documentary mostly with the 5D.

I have two teasers online at vimeo:

Unusual Attitude – The official Teaser from Christian Tillmanns on Vimeo.

(Btw: The person saying “I was able to fly” is actor Richard van Vleet known from the series “all my children”)

I had chosen the 5D due to the fact that it delivers the movie look in a small package. I would never have been able to shoot in super small cockpits or even handheld a bigger camera in an open aircraft.

This is a dirty, unofficial Teaser for my documentary “Unusual Attitude”. And clearly: that one is just for fun! And it is only the edit and the camera movements that make it look dangerous.

The doc will be about pilots an their motivation to fly.
