The force of Gravity Chasers wins audience vote

THIS year’s Edinburgh Mountain Film Festival – which took place at the weekend – had, as always, a fine a selection of beautifully-shot films, rich in high production values.

But one film stood out from the crowd: a low budget short film with a home movie feel, about cliff and bridge jumping in the Scottish Highlands.

And Gravity Chasers – made by Aberfeldy-based Robb Wallace and Richard Steel – emerged to win the audience vote.

Wallace is an outdoor pursuits instructor, while Steel is a professional cameraman, but the movie was made with a hand-held camera and on next to money.
