Freerunners, BMX bikers, skateboarders and a host of street sports athletes flip, jump and spin around the new EcoSport for a new video that was filmed in just one take.
The 90-second sequence was shot on location in Barcelona, Spain, with GoPro cameras, that captured the 26 athletes as they performed daring tricks and showcased the moves using freeze frames in the style made famous by The Matrix movie series.
Skateboarder Madars Apse and professional freerunner Dimitris Kyrsanidis (DK) appear and fellow pro freerunner Katie McDonnell and BMX star Kriss Kyle also dropped in for the shoot.
“It’s been absolutely amazing to be part of something special like this, it’s not every day you get to jump over a car,” said Kriss, who shot to fame in his Red Bull Kaleidoscope video. “It’s been great to work with all these other athletes from different disciplines.”
With no editing allowed, each athlete had to perform their stunt up close and perfectly alongside our boldly styled new compact sports utility vehicle.
“There’s a lot of pressure in this sequence, the main thing is to connect with the other people. If you fail then you’re forcing others to risk stunts again because of you, which is quite the opposite to free running,” added DK, two time winner of Red Bull’s Art of Motion competition in Santorini, Greece.
