'The Joy of Flight': Behind the Scenes With Filmmaker Gavin McClurg

In an interview with the Banff Centre, paraglider Gavin McClurg talks about getting the shot for last flight in his film 500 Miles to Nowhere. "It was a big deal to get a helicopter to do some of the filming, and everything had to be right." Once the pilots were airborne, it became more about the "joy of flight."

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
