Trevor drops his camera from Edmonton's High Level Bridge in memory of those who have jumped.

Programmer's Note: We're thrilled to be showing prolific short filmmaker Trevor Anderson's () work for the first time at the Sundance Film Festival. His documentary about the High Level Bridge in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, which stands a block from where he lives, was a personal project for the filmmaker. Anderson describes the bridge as "an impressive structure that crosses a breathtaking river valley; also two of my friends died there." He adds, "Sometimes the strongest subjects for films really are right outside your door." Shot on the Sony Webbie, the film takes full advantage of the consumer-grade camera. "What can I do with this camera that I couldn't do with a more expensive one?" Anderson asked. Then he realized, "Oh! I can huck it off the bridge!" In case you are concerned about Anderson destroying a perfectly good camera, fresh snowfall cushioned the landing, and the Webbie works just fine.
