Skydiving is one of the most exhilarating things a human could do. No matter how often it’s done, it seems doubtful that jumping out of a plane ever gets dull. Mathias Lachal’s animation definitely shows the fear and excitement within the act, but he also reveals a sense of calm that isn’t normally associated with this activity. Falling through the clouds, the sun reflects on the two divers. For a moment, everything seems to stand still. Then the freefall continues until the parachutes are deployed, giving a second helping of serenity as the wind slowly sets them down.
