I remember a few years ago watching this movie called District B13. The entire movie was in French, but the action was enough to keep me intrigued. Basically the film enlisted the use of parkour (freerunning) to take simple action scenes and elevate them to the next level.
I’ve always loved the idea of attempting to run around the city flipping & jumping off things, but sadly I don’t have the dexterity or the overall strength to accomplish such a task. Yet, that’s why I leave it up to the professional freerunners of the world. From the pros to the average city kids breaking a few bones, parkour is something that is insanely fun to watch, but difficult toactually do.
Trying to freerun is something I don’t plan on trying anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the beauty of the sport. Freerunning is the element of true freedom, but it’s even more amazing to watch when it’s in slow motion.
Slow motion freerunning is something Youtube user pwnisher decided to capture at 300fps. The video is called Tru Freedom (Slow Mo Freerunning) and it captures the true beauty & freedom that encompasses the art of parkour & freerunning.
Watch the stunning visuals below.
