The FAA wanted “something different” from the boring, government training videos they’d always done in the past–full of talking heads and bullet points.
And “different” is just what we gave them.
Part training film, part psycho-drama, “Grounded” addresses the affects of sleep deprivation in ordinary life. It employs story to engage viewers while still conveying the science components the FAA wanted to teach.
The film received 17 industry awards and has routinely been cited as the best film ever produced for the FAA.
