Wow, I actually say down and
watched "More Stuff" last night, the bonus
portion on the Good Stuff DVD and
some of the 'stuff' on there is as good as the original movie. The plane chasers
block is amazing with the 3 guys actually managing to get back in the
In the Good Stuff video there is
a slow motion scene shot from the ground. You see a
beat-up car impacting the ground, dust billowing up, a
bird flying away and then what appears to be a
skydiver,belly to earth, in slow motion falling to the
ground. I saw or heard no mention of this in the video or
credits. Was it just debris? Was this a skydiver plunging
to his death? I am not 'in the loop', so I'd really like
to know. I love this video, but find that scene
disturbing. No biggie, but it sticks in my head enough to
write this e-mail. Please...even a simple yes or no
(skydiver bouncing?) would be great.
Thanks, Jim Ingraham, novice
skydiver (34 jumps) and hooked for life!
I enjoyed the rest of the film,
the odd bits of footage i've seen before but most of it
was new and fun to watch. Some of the skysurfing footage
looked real close. I bet you've had the odd bit of
contact with a spinning board? The rigless jumps?? I've
seen the posters which show a definite harness inside the
jumpsuit but that footage looked real. Was there any sort
of harness system connecting the jumper to the rig? The
only bit i got a bit bored with was the cars section.
Cool to watch especially the making of it bits but after
the first load of cars it all looked the same. On the
other hand an excellent point about the rest of the
footage was that as well as a mixture of disciplines the
film did not stay focussed on one area for too long. Most
videos i get a bit bored watching 60Mins of Freeflying or
Formation jumps but i enjoyed the flow of stuff in Good
Thank you for your attention, and I've already received your dvd and it's amazing. If you have news products,
please send me an e-mail.
I would like to tell you how
much I enjoyed Good Stuff on DVD. I had never seen it
before I ordered and I am very happy with it. What I
really enjoyed was the Gyrocam footage of Greg Gasson
flying his canopy after that crazy no rig jump. It
appears that he is just floating around under canopy;
looks awesome. I also enjoyed the commentary you put on
it although you shouldn't do commentary after the beer
light has come on. I'm just joking man. Good stuff is
definatly good stuff to watch. I've brought to everyone
of my friends house that has a DVD player and even my
whuffo friends liked it. Cheers Joe, on a great skydiving
DVD came yesterday
(Wow--lightning fast shipping) and I rushed home to
watch it. I'm so glad I made this
purchase. Good Stuff and More Good Stuff are exactly what I was hoping to
see--2 full hours of outstanding skydivers professionally photographed. I
was totally amazed at the great Imax footage you got--the camera looked
bulky, awkward and heavy, but the shots were terrific. Great work!
Top-notch editing, superb photography
and a bouncy soundtrack make this my favorite DVD
I especially appreciated the
bonus footage, such as the TV commercials with a skydiving theme. The
mini-documentary of the making of the Argentinian Ford commercial was a great
Thanks for producing a stunning
film. I'm eagerly awaiting your next project. Please add me to your mailing
list. I can see why you're one of the most highly regarded skydiving
Wish list for Good Stuff II: Can
we get a few more shots from the door, showing the skydivers dropping from
sight? I find this a very visually exciting shot.
Feel free to use my comments any
way you like--I heartily endorse your product.
Thank you for producing such a terrific film. I wish you the very best. I'm sure eBay will sell at least a few of these for you--I've bought a couple of other skydiving films there, but none came even close to yours in quality. I'm looking forward to watching it again on a larger monitor. If you ever jump at SkyDance in
Davis, CA, please say hello.

-Yo Joe!Cool beans, was watching the video and its awesome! Checked out the DVD again today, awesome stuff! It's amazing how much footage you can cram on there, this things loaded! I've seen it a bunch of times and I don't even think I've seen it all! Very nice indeed,
Thanks for the memories!
Caution!-DVD is the shit when used with FLying- Handle with care!---------------------------True Da't
You know that footage of Rob is really awesome, your fortunate to have been able to capture those moments, and good to have captured the dynamics as good as you did.
Once again thanks for the memories
Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the VHS of Good Stuff. That was really great of you. As for the DVD...too cool. The commentary reminded me of the Bruce Jones surf films. I really got a kick out of your commercial portfolio at the end of the disk. You should put a "making of" segment at the end of all your productions...and don't forget the bloopers. No one ever gets to see how many takes it requires to make a skydive production. The "public" sees 3 1/2 minutes of freefall on Point Break and assume we have all day up there...go figure.
First I want to say the Good Stuff DVD rules!!! Keep up that good, good stuff. Next I have a quick question: how did you rig the camera to be up in the A lines of the canopy? That was an unbelievably cool shot, I'd like to know how it was done. I'm assuming that it was sent up post deployment, right? Also, what's next from you? I'm starting to jones for some more good stuff.
I have received a huge response to my email to the SA listserve regarding the DVD offer. I have received 28 requests. Please let me know if this is too many. Two of those are requests for VHS (PAL) versions of the video. I was not sure. I look forward to hearing from you.
Lisa and JoeThanks so much for your help in feeding my addiction! I received my copy of Good Stuff on DVD today -- and you got it to me just the way I asked. The woman I spoke to on the phone (was it "Elisa"? I know it wasn't Lisa -- but I didn't write her name down when she told it me) was a pleasure to do business with - thank YOU - and of course, the video is awesome! Now when I'm not "up", I can almost get there watching Joe's work.
I'm a skydiving television news producer (and past senior ENG videotape editor)with a critical eye, so I have a fine appreciation of the combination of skills Joe demonstrates in both production technique and flying ability. Jumping with the some the best skydivers in the world must be fantastic. It would sure be an honour to fly with you if you ever get to Victoria, BC, Joe!
Anyway, thanks again! "Good Stuff on DVD" ROCKS!!!
