We challenged the best freerunners and freerunning film-makers in the world to make an outstanding movie in Amsterdam within 100 hours. – Red Bull
Athletes involved: Dominic di Tomasso, Thyrone Paas, Toby Segar, Dimitrios Kyrsanidis, Bart van der Linden, Sergio Campos, Joe Scandrett, Luciano Balestra, Giles Longley.
Three teams, consisting of two freerunners and a film-maker, tested the limits of the sport and of their film-making creativity on the streets of Dutch capital Amsterdam for Red Bull 100 Hours.
The teams were allowed a maximum of 100 hours to come up with their idea, plan it and shoot it. The teams filmed their journey with the newest Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone (slo-mo), drones and stabilisers.
Twenty-four of those hours included Koningsdag – King’s Day in English – the national holiday in the Netherlands celebrating King Willem-Alexander’s birthday, and the busiest day of the year on Amsterdam’s streets.
