Dive pros Jill Heinerth and Jeff Loflin lead you through the fundamentals of sidemount diving. Equipment selection, gear setup, techniques and skills are covered in this comprehensive video guide.
"We wanted to make it as easy as possible for divers to view the Sidemount Diving video, on any platform that they prefer," said producer Robert McClellan. "I don't know if anyone in the dive training field has done this before, but Jill and Jeff decided to create this project as a truly transmedia experience. Divers can watch it immediately on a laptop, PC, iPods and iPads, smart phones, or if they would like a physical DVD, they can order one from the very same viewer in which they watch the trailer. It is really about giving the audience a choice."
"The technology behind the multimedia viewer is at the leading edge of the twenty-first century film distribution model," said McClellan, "and this year, we plan to release two more films, documentaries, using this amazing platform. There is no need to have a middleman, or a gatekeeper between the filmmakers the audience."

“In just four simple steps you can be our partner and earn money. All you need is the ability to paste a line of code into your web page, blog, facebook page or even in your email to friends. This code is generated for you when you sign up in the movie player. The code contains your unique ID and will track each time a visitor watches the movie. Our movie distributor, Distrify, will pay you a 10% fee each time. This may seem small but over time this quickly adds up. You can request the payment via paypal, anytime anywhere. This could not be more simple.”
“This is a great opportunity for dive shops and scuba instructors to get in on the leading edge of Sidemount instruction,” said Robert. “Sidemount is the future of scuba and we have designed the content of this video to augment your teaching - not replace your classes. And with the sharing features, you can also make a bit of money from each student who buys this content.”
