The first in a series of short documentaries focusing on the culture of Urban Exploring, those who risk it all to access and infiltaite closed or forgotten spaces.
Its fair to say within exploration a great deal of what is accomplished is down to luck. Are the cameras being monitored the moment you dash past? Did Granny Baggins glance up from her knitting as you climbed the fence? Was that suspicious pedestrian actually an undercover cop? Unfortunately there is no way of knowing until its too late, a series of uncontrollable factors you must push to the back of your mind if you want to proceed. As Dsankt infamously put it, grit your teeth and ”roll the dice”.
The documentary is starting to take shape, or should I say project? We actually have a name now.
For as long as I can remember explorers have joked, discussed and cried themselves to sleep over the possibility the Post Office Railway could be explored. Those keen to attempt entry desperately clawed at every scrap of information like a starving hobo snacking on bread crumbs. Just the idea of access, let alone the task of traversing the line seemed fraught with impossible obstacles and doubt.
Yet another UE documentary. Not much info to give as of yet, still logging the 150+ hours of donated material and editing small bits as time becomes available. One such submission contained so much excess footage, it felt appropriate to make some sort of short teaser using it.
I never thought Down Street would fall, another station to add to Christmas day wish list. located in the heart Park Lane district it appeared as an impenetrable fortress, one with no time for doubters and naysayers, protected by hotels, embassies and the rich.
