THE AMAZING SPIDERDAD – Viral Youtube Video

Well what can i say. This below video has simply exploded on the internet. I’m so grateful for everyone’s kind messages and thoughts to our family and especially to Jayden. We’ve had a crazy few days since the video was uploaded. Never did we expect this to go viral like it did. Amazed. I hope this inspires many other families going through difficult time, and to channel their energy into some thing positive, and to create amazing memories for the family.

I was simply clearing my hard drive, and came across the video and obviously wasnt going to delete it. So in order to keep the memory for future reference i uploaded it to my youtube channel – youtube.com/wilsonrunnin

I gave it a decent title which was relevant and overnight it literally went crazy. The following morning i had messages from the media wanting to share the video. Check it out 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.

We already cant wait to shoot the sequel, as this particular project was producing what 3RUN are very passionate about – Film Making and Parkour / Free Running Action.

SkyFest 2013

Mike and the 3RUN Team head to the Sky Broadcasting grounds to perform on top of Europe’s Largest BigTop tent. The guys had such an amazing time jumping and flipping on the tent itself. The guests thoroughly enjoyed it. Even the our client, Sky wasn’t expecting such jaw dropping stunts off a tent. Ultimately they were impressed as to we’re the audience.

During our time were also had the pleasure of meeting Got To Dance 2013 Winner Lukas McFarlane. Such a humble, nice guy with such creative talent. Lukas showed his support by wearing our new 3RUN Bands in his performance in front of 5000 people.

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.

Free Running in Bangkok

Day 2:-

So Me, Chase Armitage, Adam Brashaw and Chris Lodge all set out very early in the morning to begin shooting in one amazing location, which was perfect for the look we was after. Somewhere gritty, and very urban looking.

Being creative with our movement is something we all try to develop when finding new training areas. It’s such a great way to improve our thinking in the way we move over, under or through obstacles. We are almost training our minds to naturally move in creative ways, without thinking. It just happens. So finding these areas around Bangkok, was new and fresh for us to simply have fun and enjoy training in a completely new environment.

Today was also great to hit the Roofs where we took our Parkour / Free Running skills to another level, with big jumps, flips and general Flowing Movement. Such a good way to finish the 2nd days shoot.

Day 3:-

Today was gonna be a busy one as not only did we have to continue shooting, but we also needed to book the Cambodia trip. Sorting out accommodation, transport, visa’s and photos for the visas.

But nothing stops is for achieving our goals, so we organised the Cambodia trip during the hottest part of the day, and continued filming and training in the early afternoon when it was cooler.

These scenes were all about, what 3run call, “filler shots”, where we film specific shots that help connect all the main clips we filmed the previous days. These naturally develop into much more as we find ourselves, once again making a simple shot look even more amazing by adding bigger tricks and flowing movement.

This Parkour and Free Running video is shaping up nicely to become one of the greatest Free Running videos 3run has made. Stay tuned for more updates posted here or the 3run website – www.3run.co.uk as and when videos get released.
