great production, but kind of repetitive no?

some scenes were hard to show unless i used each camera angle. without it looking spurratic, that was the best i could do with those... it would have been much easier if the cameraman wasnt just a tripod ;)

bubble, gear is wearing jeans, Akh doesnt have a hat on, leon has a white hat with a white long sleeve undershirt, and Im wearing no undershirt with a white hat.  ;)

I saw the video yesterday and just needed a day to process before I posted:

All I got is:
IT's sosooo nice to see a completely Parkour type movements video.
This will now be the video I show people if they ask what Parkour is (in the unlikely event that I do not have my copy of dispersion handy).

And as always - clean, creative, controlled techniques. It  makes me happy  ;)
You boys have set the standard (maybe a little too) high.

Ok, well here's the thing.  I was watching this vid before swim practice, and myself was envious of some flowful stuff...but my coach goes "that looks really boring...its the same stuff over and over again...."  I didn't know what to say...but looking back, it did look really repetitive, in that it wasn't the "tripod" but that it was simply just vault, jump, land, vault jump land ....

@gene (jumpoffmyroof)

in most cases, parkour isn't that exciting to watch.

Come on guys, let's not turn this into a mundane argument. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion!

yeah, i wouldnt go to a swim coach for parkour advice  ;)
when doing the minimal amount of movement to increase efficiency, you lose that "flair" factor that so many people find attractive. we wanted to show newcomers what parkour looks like so they arent foolishly mistaken between that and freerunning. It may look easy, but thats only the product of numerous hours of training to make them look easy  ;)

and no mundane arguments.  :P

So, what you're are asking, in a sense, is why something along the lines of dispersion is more interesting? Camera tricks. Good camerawork and editing can make anything exciting. Parkour in and of itself is much less exciting than you might think, especially to those who don't try it. When you're focusing on ground-level techniques, there's nothing to make people's jaws drop. If they tried it themselves, they would know better..but how often does that happen? ;)

Awesome! ;D huge applause

i sat here watching it in my school library and everybody heard me yell "Hell Yes!" at the end of it.

i loved it. timeless, truly timeless.

The Plan: I will fight to stay alive in every situation, sickness, or conflict- just so I can die while freerunning.

OH SO YOU THINK ITS AWESOME I GET BEAT UP... I'LL SHOW YOU!!! hahah just playin  ;D

Definetely might think of it as repetitive because we are not masterful cameratogrophers (is that a word?)!!!

Then theres also the fact that theres no fli... i mean....  oh heavens it was great parkour!@! ;)
When we move, we move as one.

Act; for the universe will never forget your movement, nor will it ever forgive your stillness.

That was Super!  Good job and nice flow.  I wish Chicago had more spots like that.

Get with the flow...
