Ten Meter Tower – by Maximilien Van Aertryck and Axel Danielson

 

This simple, beautifully produced video shows a unique view of bravery. The film has a simple premise: faced with being on top of a 10 metre high diving platform for the first time in your life, would you jump or would you climb down?

We often talk about bravery as being, at the core, about feeling fear and facing it. But why would you voluntarily put yourself in a position where you will feel fear? And what thoughts and feelings will shape your actions? Are you able to predict who will face their fears and jump? And can you spot which mechanisms help face fear and which do not?
