Gravitas Ventures has secured worldwide VOD rights to “Don’t Look Down,” chronicling Sir Richard Branson’s epic, hot air balloon adventure in the mid 80s and early 90s. The film premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and will arrive in theaters and on demand in the U.S. this November.
“Don’t Look Down” is the untold story behind Sir Richard Branson’s creation of the world’s largest hot air balloon and his cross-ocean voyages. Director Daniel Gordon captures the intensity and passion of the team that was involved in this ambitious project as well as never-before-seen archival footage captured from inside the balloon at over 30,000 feet. Branson himself does not hold back, as he reveals with profound clarity what was going through his mind when he was confronted with the belief that he had just minutes left to live.
“We are excited to be working with Gravitas and Submarine on the launch of Don’t Look Down. Audiences will see Sir Richard in a new way with his intense and very intimate testimony as he relives his brush with death in this sublime adventure story,” said Johnny Webb, CEO of Sundog Pictures.
“When Sir Richard Branson participated in Imagination Day at Tribeca, he discussed the theme of ‘daring to dream,’” said Nolan Gallagher, Founder & CEO of Gravitas Ventures. “We are excited to bring this you-must-see-it-to-believe-it account of one of life’s great adventurers to a global audience.”
Award winning Director Daniel Gordon (“Crossing the Line”) helmed “Don’t Look Down” which he also produced along with Johnny Webb, John Battsek and Iris Maor from Sundog Pictures. Sam Anthony, Hugo Heppell and Garfield Kennedy are the Executive Producers.
