Last year we worked on a project with Plymouth based company Series41 to produce an informative video about the human fight or flight response and how the body deals with stress. The video is based around a Parkour chase sequence along the edge of the city and most of it was filmed on the University of Plymouth Campus. After a long time in the editing suite it has finally been released and you can see an extract of the full documentary below:

Snow Tricks - Dartmoor 2013 Last December we made the most of a brief period of cold weather and headed up to Haytor to see how fast we could throw ourselves down snow covered hills. Hopefully we will get another opportunity this year but in case you missed it, here's last years video.
To promote exercise and the 2014 Olympics, Olympic Changes installed a rather unique ticket machine at a Moscow subway station. Instead of accepting money, the high tech ticket machine only accepted exercise as payment. Riders could receive a free ticket by standing in front of the machine’s camera, and performing 30 squats or lunges.
Ronnie Shalvis, a world class Freerunner, has uploaded several videos to youtube in the past few years of him dressed up as Altair, the main character from Assassins Creed, performing amazing street stunts and tricks in particular locations.

Overall, Ronnie's videos are fantastic and he is definitely very good at Freerunning and that reflects in this video.
