Cliff Whitney, President of Atlantahobby.com said “We are very proud to once again be working closely with Higher Plane Productions. I recently told a shop visitor that if he was tired of watching the same old RC videos where the camera man just stands there and shoots the flight routine from a distance he should take a look at the work of Higher Plane. Fred Midgett is the owner of Higher Plane productions (HPP) and these films are different.... way different. All HPP films are "High Definition" productions and come alive on the wide screen. With HPP-HD you become part of the action with the unique camera viewpoints, editing and original music not seen anywhere else. Very impressive productions, a true joy to watch. Thank goodness these are not pay per view! You just do not want them to end and watch them over and over again.”

About the HPP Film Festival
The Southeast Electric Flight Festival is the largest annual gathering of electric powered RC planes in the World. SEFF 2007 included a night time presentation of The Higher Plane Film Festival. This film with over 90 minutes of action is a collection of film shorts that celebrates RC flight with superb flying, spectacular scenery, visionary cinematography, and a quirky sense of humor that engaged all who were lucky to be present at the showing and this included flyers and non-flyers alike.

About the Production
Captured and mastered in high definition, high quality is an understatement. The original film has been expanded to include more flying and fun from the event. The feature program includes noon demo flights, dozens of planes on the flight-line, a spectacular mid-air collision, and the definitive SEFF 2007 showpiece Let’s Stay Right Here. Plus extended versions of the soulful Lake Cruise Lullaby, the hilarious Big Props and exceptional footage of Gernot Bruckman at ETOC that must be seen to be believed! Other chapters include The SEFF Stooges, War Bird Gaggle, Gliding the line and a lot more.
