THOMSON DREAM – FREERUNNING ON A SHIP COMMERCIAL

We are pleased to announce (finally) the launch of the new Thomson Cruises Commercial – ‘Dream Escape’.
3RUN Media was approached by Thomson Cruises with the brief to put together an action packed ‘Mission Impossible’ commercial to preview the new Cruise Liner – The Thomson Dream.

We put together a number of story board options for the initial presentation, but it was clear everyone loved the beautiful simplicity of the cheeky FreeRunners who by-pass security in a desperate bid to be the first to see the new ship in all it’s glory.

From there it was a case of casting the Free Runners and Security guards, which of course came down to a simple selection from our World Class FreeRunning Troupe 3RUN. The beauty of such an in house production is the synergies of a great working pattern between what happens infront of camera, AND behind. We pride ourselves on our ability to shoot action like no other production company and that really shines through in this beautiful piece.

We had our Heli POV camera’s at full disposal, crane jibs and glide cams to capture the action exactly as we envisioned.

The final edit came together and as ever, the only problem was selecting which shots couldn’t make the final cut. Click here to see the premiere of the new commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Oec-RqntkA

3RUN’s EPIC Fusion League Action

Mike and the 3RUN Team brought all their Film Production experience, and general knowledge of Cinematography, making the latest 4th Fusion League episode, one of the best yet. With some amazingly choreographed Freerunning sequences in several locations, including massive roof gaps, double front flips, and some standard epic moves from our close personal friend and Red Bull Athlete – Ryan Doyle.

As always we wanted to make the shots look totally epic, so we also brought down 3RUN’s Aerial Cinematographers – HeliPOV who provided the epic shots we needed with their latest piece of kit. With new upgrades, including a super smooth gimbal and capable of holding a Red Epic Professional Camera, we was naturally excited about how these shots would turn out. As always they delivered.

Parkour Temples in Cambodia

Today was an exciting day for Me, Chase Armitage, Chris Lodge and Adam Brashaw as we headed to see the Angkor Wat temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We were excited for a few reasons really, one if which was to get some amazing pictures for each of our 3run profiles, as the temples offered such incredible scenery. We also decided to wear these perfect baggy Aladdin styled trousers and modified our new 3run Tees to fit the temple look.

We went back to Beng Maleah Temple for a 2nd day to shoot some epic Parkour and Free Running scenes, and because it was the final day in Cambodia, we trained and went harder than ever, to get those perfect cinematic shots for the video. Cambodia has truly been an amazing journey. Missioning a 2 hour trip on a Tuk Tuk each way to the Beautiful Temple. Experiencing such beautiful landscapes and inspiring scenery on our journey, with locals going about their daily lives, children playing and simply having fun with what they do. Just a simple wave from me to them brought such a big smile to there faces, which really made me appreciate my lifestyle so much more, and to feel humbled with all that I have.
