Everyone knows the Scots love a good scrap, and nothing proves that more than the band of hulking brawlers known as Insane Championship Wrestling, or ICW. ICW was started by promoter, Mark Dallas, in 2006 in Glasgow, Scotland. Incorporating elements of Scottish culture with hardcore wrestling, they soon began attracting a rabid local fan base. The swelling crowds at ICW events outgrew arena after arena, and in 2013 they were named UK Promotion of the Year by Fighting Spirit Magazine.
The ability to soar like a bird seems to be one of the most pervasive desires of mankind. Those that can do so without the aid of an airplane are indeed a special breed.

Director Tony Ritter began his cinematic career as the Director of Photography for big budget Hollywood films. He soon found the glacial pace of development to be too frustrating and so took the production reins into his hands. Wanting to combine his love of flying with his love of film, Tony hooked up with thirteen of the greatest hang gliders and paragliders in the world (including 4-time World Aerobatic Champion and Guinness World Record Holder, John Heiney) to make his film about the sport. With top pilots, three cameras and a 24-day shooting schedule in three of the most popular flying sites in America, Tony Ritter created his own feature film from start to finish.After filming and post-production was completed, rather than return to the studio system, Tony chose Pivotshare to distribute his film. Tony is using Pivotshare’s monetized embeddable player on his corporate site. The player not only allows his customers to go from viewing a preview to purchasing to watching the full feature all without leaving the page, it also captures valuable customer data, which allows for easy repeat purchases as well as future marketing opportunities.
