World-Champion Skydiver Turns Free-Falling Into Art

Martin Kristensen completed his first jump at the age of 13 and has worked since then to master the art of the free fall. In this highly cinematic film, production company Satori Factory captures Kristensen's training in breathtaking Voss, Norway. From free diving to practicing in a wind tunnel, see how a skydiver fulfilled his dreams of becoming a world champion.

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 belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
