It's an exciting time for National Geographic fans and knowledge seekers alike in Singapore.

National Geographic Live recently concluded it's first event, the Coral, Fire & Ice: Explore Secret Underwater Worlds by legendary underwater photographer David Doubilet, as part of the series.

The next event will be by intrepid filmmaker Bryan Smith. Titled Extreme Adventure on the Edge, Bryan will share gripping moments from his assignments to document extreme feats and high adventure in the world's most challenging environments.

If you'd always seen amazing footage and thought to yourself how in the world did they capture that on film, Bryan will provide first-hand experience through an interactive presentation at the Esplanade Concert Hall.

Personally, I am looking forward to this! I have HUGE appreciation for the people behind the lens - without them, where would all our beloved documentaries be!

Bryan will be talking about the risk he and his team takes to get the shots they want, as well as various innovative technical solutions to capturing them.

‘Extreme is whatever is scary for you’
– Bryan Smith

Braving raging white-water in British Columbian rivers; sharing too little space with grizzlies in Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula (where legions of mosquitoes are the other voracious predators to fear); and fulfilling the eternal dream of human flight are all situations and subjects that have absorbed Bryan Smith over the past ten years.

I will be expecting to gasp with awe for a man that is not only a trill-seeker, but is also an extraordinarily passionate storyteller who very consciously uses his filmmaking craft to elevate important stories that inspires us to prove our limits and entertain us in new ways.

Extreme Adventure on the Edge: Vertical Feats and the Man Who Can Fly with Bryan Smith is a one-night only event at the Esplanade Concert Hall on 9 October (Thursday) at 7:30pm.

Ticket prices are at $39 and $49 and you can purchase them from SISTIC.

You can keep update to that about this event and others as part of the National Geographic Live series over at their Facebook Page as well as mine. =D
