The new video from Ball Watch Explorer Guillaume Néry is called Free Fall – an unlikely title for a film shot underwater. Néry is a world-record holding freediver and the video follows him as he “base jumps” into Dean’s Blue Hole in the Bahamas, one of the the world’s deepest underwater sinkholes. The video was filmed entirely “on breath hold” by French free-dive champion Julie Gautier. Since its May 30 launch, the video has racked up over 3.2 million views.
While the video does not depict an actual record dive attempt (the creator’s description identifies the video as an artistic undertaking), the imagery is compelling. Click the screen shot below to watch it on the official Ball Watch website.
