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.

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
