One way or another, Paul is getting Cody off the roof.

The one shot wonder, ‘Jumpers’ was made as part of a series of short films for the Takeaway Scenes project with several restricting rules. But even before knowing the rules we need to make sure the film works well as a standalone film, and Jumpers simply takes us away with its gracious dialogue and dramatic setting.

We hope to continue pushing this project into increasingly uncharted territory, both narratively, thematically, and dramatically (i.s. the fireworks). We hope to inspire other filmmakers to create more character-driven stories.

There’s certainly lots to be inspired by this highly dramatic film, especially that everything shot in the film is real, including the fireworks display and actors balanced precariously on the thats-all-she-wrote edge of a high building.
