Escape sequences. Are the coolest things ever. No, not the deeply intense puzzle-solving kind you see conducted by Michael Scofield in Prison Break – gosh was that really in 2005? – but the action-kind:
Looks familiar? That is the original escape sequence performed by David Belle back in 2004 for District 13. The trailers you’ve been seeing for Brick Mansions, the Hollywood remake coming out next week, are a respectful tribute to the iconic scene that has inspired so much of the movement we practice today.
We’re putting together our own tribute together by giving away a brand-new pair of Ollo Sapiens! We’d like you to come up with:
– 45 seconds of your own escape sequence
– Film it
– Send it in to us at our Facebook Contest Submission
– By 10 May
And that’s it! The best and most fun sequences will be featured on RunFree.Asia, and of course we’ll give a pair of Ollo Sapiens to the best entry. This is a Worldwide Contest so anyone can take part! (The shoes will be shipped to you.) We look forward to seeing those entries! In the meantime, if you’re in the country this weekend, we’ll see you at the Brick Mansions Parkour Jam outside The Grand Cathay on Saturday, and for everyone who can’t make it, enjoy the movie when it comes out next week! We can’t wait too!
Remember, we’re also giving away a pair of premiere tickets and some in-season passes for Brick Mansions if you are in Singapore, so don’t miss out on that. To qualify for that, you need to send in your entry before 20 April.
All the best!
