    Longest Jump Story - When I woke up the morning of jump day, I
    called my wife and told her that I had a bad feeling. Ive traveled
    the world for motorsports and seen hundreds of crashes - multiple
    car pile ups at high speeds, race cars rolling end-over-end,
    sometimes on fire. James Kirkham, the 4 Wheel Motor Sports Creative
    Team Leader for GoPro Original Productions, wrote of the experience
    on the scene that day. Professional skier and rally driver Guerlain
    Chicherit attempted to beat the world record for longest ramp car
    jump. The result was not what he had hoped for, and the video that
    came from it was not just a crash video. The life of a professional
    stunt athlete is rarely without consequences, James explains. We see
    them fall, crash, get hurt and, yes, sometimes they die. But what we
    captured inside of Guerlains car was very different than a crash
    video -- it was a deeply ethereal, intimate human experience. We
    captured that moment - A look on a mans face and a light in his eyes
    when he realizes, this is it. I am going to die. Three or four
    seconds that seem like minutes, without time. Where I expected to
    see fear, panic, contortion, and pain, Guerlain shows us a deep
    existential calm. It was a record of one man confronting his own
    mortality, and ultimately experiencing a moment of what we can only
    describe as grace.
