For those living outside the UK who might not have had the opportunity to see Channel 4’s amazing Concrete Circus documentary, the culmination of the project resulted in four shorts films featuring the talents of some of the very best urban sports stars around.
1. Danny Macaskill – Industrial Revolutions
Directed by Stu Thomson, Industrial Revolutions sees Danny take his incredible bike skills into an industrial train yard and some derelict buildings.
2. Storm Origins
Directed by Claudiu Voicu, Storm Origins takes a narrative approach to the brief, pitting three parkour experts against each other in a race against time (and fire), all under the watch of a mysterious gang.
If you like Storm Origins, you should also check out the parkour short Urban we posted on DN last year.
3. Kilian Martin: A Skate Illustration
Directed by Brett Novak, Kilian Martin: A Skate Illustration uses slow motion footage and stunning cinematography to show the true artistry of this innovative skater.
4. Keelan Phillips – Release
Directed by Kendy Ty, Keelan Phillips – Release uses some fancy post-production to showcase the freestyle BMXers gravity defying tricks.
