TXPK Video up for AWARDS
« on: June 29, 2006, 07:15:45 AM »
Guys, I can not explain to you the amazement that Texas Parkour is going through right now! A while back when TXPK was just getting started we had an story done over us here in Austin Texas.

When you watch it I want you to understand First that we were all young in the philosophy and didnt much know the difference about free running and parkour.  So there will be flipping and non efficient movements.  Also, you might be able to find the old thread about this clip somewhere on this site or say UF. hehe.

Here is the Kicker though, this video was up for MANY AWARDS!!!  The KVUE team has already won 3 awards on it from the Associated Press...

First Place Awards
1. Best Feature/Light - Christine Haas & Todd Rogenthien
2. Best Feature Editing/General News - Todd Rogenthien

Edward R. Murrow Awards from Radio-Television News Directors Association
Videography - Le Parkour -- Todd Rogenthien
----the award is only given out to 40 people all over the US and it is a VERY prestigious award.

Latest News though says that it is up for an EMMY in more then one Catogory.  I figured this would be news that other traceurs would like to hear about.

the camera work and the editing were very nicely executed. And everything you warned us about in your post... well , no use repeating criticisms. I hope you get some of those awards!

I still can't believe how well that story is doing. Awards aside, that story got about 7 of my friends started in parkour. Heh I remember it airing on TV, and my friends were all "DUDE I SAW YOU PARKOURING ON TV!" Parkouring doesn't even SOUND like it should work. Yet people still say it...

Parkour isn't a sport, it's a way of life...
