Outside, lookin' in

POSTED BY Kevin Roth on Aug 17, 2009

The Ledge, a series of glass boxes that extend roughly four feet out from the west side of the Willis Tower Skydeck, has been awing…and scaring Skydeck visitors since the experience opened in early July of this year.

To round out our Skydeck work, we needed to capture this experience on video, specifically looking to film visitors from both inside and outside (yep, outside) the Ledge, capturing all of the emotion, excitement and trepidation that comes with that first leap of faith.

To get the shots from outside, we put our film crew into the window wash/service rig that loads from the roof of the Willis Tower. After a quick safety briefing and ensuring that all equipment and people were secured, we embarked on capturing some very unique footage, check out the stills below.

The view is fantastic from the Ledge, but arguably better from the roof!
