A Short Film Shoves a Statistician Out an Airplane at ‘43,000 Feet’

43000 Feet Short Film

Why Watch? If you found yourself falling from 8 miles above the ground, what would you do? This clever short from Campbell Hooper is a sharp primer on survival (if you don’t take it too seriously).

What Will It Cost? About 8 minutes.
