GO PRO: Parkour POV – 3RUN Rooftop Missions

Me and Chris Lodge decided to scout some locations for rooftop missions which havent been seen before. Nothing is more exciting than to come across new routes to climb and wander, especially if your “not allowed to be up there”. I must stress at the point that we are professionals and should not be replicated by anyone without the knowledge and experience that we have. Our mindset was simple. To continue climbing and find new areas to walk across the rooftops of Basingstoke without the option of simply turning back because it was too difficult. That wasn’t going to happen. On a number of occasions we were seen by passers by shouting “look at those guys”. Scurrying across rooftops is definitely a passion as its the time when im most free. Its exciting to know that what were doing is dangerous, and extreme in some cases, but its that feeling of going to the point of the unknown. We never new how we were going to get down. We simply had to work it out using our Parkour skills and common sense. Anyway heres the video below.

ASSASSINS CREED – Live Action Parkour Film

3RUN have once again delivered in the Media Production world. This time with the famous Ubisoft Video Game – Assassins Creed. After months of preparation and chasing some good weather, the production team finally had some good weather conditions to shoot everything they planned for the epic short film. Featuring all the classic wrist blades, epic action and simply beautifully shot sequences. Assassins Creed has always bee a favorite in the eyes of Parkour Athletes, as the movement is very much the same.

Parkour Video Game – 3RUN Santorini, Greece

With Parkour still very much growing, 3RUN really have stepped up production value in their latest project. Free Running, moving and flowing through the rooftops of Santorini, Greece, in this Playstation Game style video. Santorini has been home of the RedBull Art of Motion Free Running Event for the last few years and has become extremely popular to the locals, who look forward to watching the worlds best athletes, throw down their moves to be crowned champion.

Chase Armitage, Scott Young and Chris Lodge set off to Greece for a weeks filming of the this incredible video. Scouting the best locations throughout Santorini, for the ultimate free running sequences. Although these guys make it look easy, the training and shooting schedule was still very demanding to ensure the project panned out exactly how the 3RUN Team visioned it. Watching through this production, you straight away notice the complex style of rooftops Santorini has, with different shaped buildings all flowing down the side of a mountain, surrounded by the ocean. Its no wonder that RedBull chose this location to feature the Art of Motion Event.

With many more video productions like this in the pipeline for 3RUN, its sure to set the bench mark for epic free running and parkour videos of 2014. Please stay connected to my personal social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We arrived at our pimped out hotel on Tuesday Morning, not expecting it to be a Crown Plaza, with all the Top Hotel trimmings. Audi really did make us feel welcome during our time here, catering for our every need to ensure the performance and reveal went smoothly and to plan, working along side the Production Team to get the job done how the client visioned it. Rehearsals began Tuesday and finished Wednesday Morning ready for showtime at 5:30pm that evening. So naturally we all used the 5-6 hours of free time, to our advantage. By heading up to the rooftop for some training and to get some crazy pics.

JAMES KINGSTON – DONT LOOK DOWN!

Urban free climbers are a new breed of daredevils, young men and women who illegally climb cranes and buildings without any safety equipment, then hang from them, hundreds of metres above the ground, one slip from certain death…

James Kingstoke, Dont Look Down

Free climbing originated in Eastern Europe, but has recently spread to Britain.

3RUN Ambassador – James Kingston is a 23-year-old who lives with his mother near Southampton. In his spare time James scales the local 100m cranes and 200m radio towers.

Now James embarks on a journey to the spiritual home of urban free climbing, Ukraine, where he teams up with the infamous Mustang Wanted, the craziest climber of them all.

As Mustang and James explore Kiev, the pair push themselves to new extremes, climbing derelict buildings and tightrope-walking hundreds of metres above the city, before finally heading to the iconic Moscow bridge to attempt Mustang’s latest death defying stunt.

Don’t Look Down is fascinating, revealing and nerve-wracking.

SERIES SYNOPSIS

This documentary follows James Kingston, an urban free climber who scales 100m cranes, 200m radio towers, tall buildings and bridges… without using any safety equipment at all.

Don't Look Down

Check out the hour long documentary here – http://www.channel4.com/programmes/dont-look-down/4od

With out a doubt James Kingston is a Professional Athlete and these stunts should NOT be replicated by anyone.
