Ever tried skydiving? Like it? This is "car-diving", though I do NOT recommend trying this at all. This is just a very short, quick clip showing what car-diving is: a very dangerous and illegal extreme sport. I had originally intended on producing an entire documentary about this dangerous activity, but I haven't had the time or resources to pull it off. Perhaps I'll get back to it in the future.

The Art of Car-Diving
The concept of inventing a new and absurd extreme sport and making a documentary (mockumentary) about it is nothing new, but when done right, can be very entertaining. Car-diving was something I started plotting back in early 2001. I had bizarre sight gags and situations that would have (or should have) people guessing if the documentary was for real or a gag. The activity of car-diving itself would be very, very dangerous and most likely deadly, but depicting it as a popular, underground extreme sport and showing the pride and skill of various car-divers might make for a hilarious documentary. The ideas I had charted out for this project interested another guy I worked on video projects with and we started planning the documentary. There were several reasons the project was canceled, one of which was a visit my video partner had received from the local police. The cops didn't like the idea too much, for obvious reasons. It's a farce and the actual car-diving takes place via some visual FX magic. As fake as it is, my wife cringed when I showed her my test shot. I may rework the documentary a bit and end up producing a scaled down version of my original concept.
