Synopsis: Within the slackline community, there is often a disconnect between slackliners of different disciplines, particularly trickliners, who are often in a world of their own. This film is a first step towards unifying multiple disciplines of slacklining. It stars Justin Wagers, a professional trickline athlete, and Heather Larsen, a professional longline/highline/yogaline athlete and exemplifies how slackliners of different backgrounds can come together in collaboration.

Filmed in the period of 3 days in Tacoma, Washington, Justin and Heather showcase their skills on 14 distinct lines.

Director's Statement

This was easily the most fun I had working on a project in 2016. Although the video looks like it was filmed within a few hours, it actually took almost 3 full days of setting up 14 different lines to get the shots that we wanted. Justin and Heather are a great team and couldn’t have been easier to work with.
