Filmmakers’ statement

We’ve been filming a TV series called Invincible about our friend Daniel Ennett for many years. He’s a quadruple amputee with a taste for adventure.

We’ve filmed him sailing, skiing, painting. We’ve done it all.

Except getting him certified for scuba diving. We had to fly a disability scuba expert in from Kenya to make this work. I’m pretty sure we made history with this short doc.
