It looked to be about a big enough 'chute to make sure you survive feeling your legs crumple underneath you. :D Give me a bigger chute, please! :D

Glad y'all also enjoyed the video. Now then, can you imagine us as the trailing cameraman? Let's see, we'd be thinking:

1. Be sure to frame correctly using the rule of thirds
2. Don't cross the line
3. Balance the iris and gain, getting the proper DOF
4. Zoom in tight and - oops, *SPLAT*

Buy him a nice DSLR so maybe he can go into the wedding photography business... LOL

Seriously though, that was just my pessimistic side talking. Have you seen the rates some very "average" photographers charge!?!
