Dream Lines

In 2010, Sommer launched a movie called Dream Lines - Part I where he flies near the cliffs and mountains all over the world. He launched four episodes of Dream Lines including Dream Lines - Part III that reached more than 10 million views on YouTube and Dream Lines IV which exceeded four million views. In this last, a teaser was dropped one month before the original launch, 14 December 2012, where we can see the different lines that Sommer and his cameraman, Ludovic Woerth, flew during 2012.

The Perfect Flight

In 2013, Sommer appears in a web series called The Perfect Flight produced by Epic TV where he performs stunts with the late Ludovic Woerth (who filmed the flights thanks to cameras attached to his helmet) and Espen Fadnes. In the first episode, they went to Rio in Brazil and fly near Christ the Redeemer. In the second one, the three friends tried to fly under the bridge of Aiguille du Midi, located in the Alps, France. Then, they fly between the Tianmen mountains in China, where Espen Fadnes narrowly escaped collision with a cable car. They jumped over Piton des Neiges in the mountains of the Reunion Island in the fourth episode.

Free by Rudimental and Emeli Sandé

In 2013, Sommer featured in a music video for a song by Rudimental and Emeli Sandé titled "Free." Sommer uses a wingsuit and glides over the Eiger mountains in the Alps, in this video it shows his childhood. When he was young he got bullied by some young kid and he saw an eagle flying and he thought he can fly and be free as well.

Dangerous by Within Temptation

Sommer appeared in the music video for "Dangerous", a song by Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation featuring Howard Jones, formerly of Killswitch Engage. The video shows Sommer gliding through the air and performing stunts such as navigating through a narrow gap between two buildings.
