This video of world champion freediver Guillaume Nery's special dive at Dean's Blue Hole is stunning. It's filmed entirely on breath hold by the French champion Julie Gautier and I feel like I am out of breath every time I watch this.
"Guillaume Nery and myself decided to use our time during a freediving competition at Dean's Blue Hole (deepest blue hole in the world) to make a short movie. Since a long time Guillaume wanted to make the link beween freeding and base jumping. Our goal was to emphasise on esthetic images and innovative camera moves." Julie Gautier
I've always had a thing for freedivers after watching Luc Besson's Le Grand Bleu (The Big Blue) many years ago. In my book, free divers along with surfers are the coolest people. I love what they do and always jealous of their capability.
