How to Learn Anything
The series will capture the process of learning unconventional skills, with crazy timelines and even crazier challenges.
The first episode of the web series will follow Stephen's journey while he attempts to learn how to solve a Rubix Cube... while skydiving! The educational documentary will feature interviews with University Alberta professors on the physics of falling out of a moving airplane, the mathematics behind solving a Rubix Cube in under a minute and interviews with skydiving instructors on how to approach this insane challenge! The doc will provide a candid perspective of Stephen's process to learning how to solve the Rubix Cube, and the various quirky ways he attempts to prepare for the big jump. The story will be complete after he spends a day jumping out of an airplane with Edmonton Skydive, while attempting to solve a Rubix Cube before they pull the chute.
The faculty of science at the University of Alberta has agreed to connect us with multiple mathematics professors to interview about the project. We will talk about the interesting math behind solving a Rubix Cube, and see if the professor can calculate the likelihood of Stephen being able to pull this off.

We have Al Christou, an avid skydiver and CEO of Edmonton Skydive lined up to talk about how to skydive, and why he thinks that solving a rubix cube while skydiving is insane...but not impossible. Al and his team was the first individual to give a tattoo while skydiving, and will be helping this vision come to reality.
