Parkour and Freerunning Gives a Moment of Meditation

This was posted on the CBS News website - it's a cool video and the talent of the people in the video is mind-boggling. And somehow, as the article suggests, there is a meditative quality to the ways these people navigate their environment. Beautiful.

Parkour and freerunning gives a moment of meditation

By William Goodman

(CBS News) There are many things in this world that are beautiful and can allow us a moment to take pause and reflect. Yesterday we showed you some examples through the medium of time-lapse video. Today, we take a different direction and give you a moment of meditation through the medium of - wait for it - parkour and freerunning. You're going to have to trust me on this one.

The rather striking and extreme, yet also very calming Vimeo video was directed, edited, filmed by and stars one multi-talented Will Sutton who writes:
My new film of my things, Parkour Free Running and Film Making. I wanted to create a film where it involves my passions together. After a year and a half I created this. There are many more film ideas I have which I am now starting to create now this has finish. Yeya!

I directed my friends on how I would like it filmed after I setup the shots. Scenery shots I filmed myself.
Glidecam at the rocks were shot with Giles from Visive and a few clips with Scott Bass.
This is a project I have been working on for about a year and half. Whenever I had free time I would go out and film. I wanted to show how much I love to go out and make films and do Parkour.

Thanks to everyone on my journeys and who helped make this!
A wonderful piece of work that has earned a major triple-rainbow salute of awesome from all of us here at The Feed. Keep finding ways to follow all of your passions, Will! And if you'd like to check out more work by Will Sutton, you can visit his website by clicking here.
