43,000 FEET

On his way to a statistics conference, John Wilkins is the victim of a freak accident, sucked out of a plane when an emergency door fails mid-flight. Realizing he has several minutes before he hits the ground, he reflects on his past, formulates a plan for hitting the ground, and rehearses what he will say to the media on the off chance that he survives.


Directed by Campbell Hooper and Campbell Hooper

Campbell Hooper has utilized elements from film, video, illustration, animation, sound design, painting, and photography in a wide range of international music videos and television commercials. He formed the creative studio Special Problems in 2007. This is his first short film.
