Am Wochenende lief auf Channel 4 (was ist das eigentlich in den letzten Tagen mit Channel 4? Die drehen aber gehörig auf, doh!) die Urban Sports-Doku „Concrete Circus“, die von der Produktion von vier Urban Sports-Clips handelt, der gestrige Clip von Macaskill war einer davon, oben zwei Clips weitere daraus. Der erste ist eine BMX-Animation mit Keelan Phillips und Soundtrack von Dubstepper Obny, gefolgt vom Free Running-Short „Storm Origins“ mit Paul ‘Blue’ Joseph, Phil Doyle und Mathiue Ledoux und den Chemical Brothers.

Die komplette Doku selbst habe ich theoretisch nicht online gefunden, praktisch aber schon, wenn man weiß, wo man suchen muss wink wink nudge nudge. Snip von Channel 4:

A new generation of the very best urban sports stars are teaming up with incredible young film-makers. Together they’ve produced stunning films that have captured the attention – and the imagination – of tens of millions of viewers.

For the very first time, Concrete Circus, directed by Mike Christie (Jump London, Inside Incredible Athletes), brings together five of the world’s best street sport talents and their amazing film-makers.

Their recent films have it all: beauty, danger, jaw-dropping action, and – between them – nearly 50 million online views. They are: urban trial-rider phenomenon Danny McAskill; skateboarding virtuoso Kilian Martin; Storm Freerun’s Blue with extraordinary 19-year-old parkouriste Phil Doyle (who are joined for an impressive cameo by the incredible pakour/skater Mathieu Ledoux); and, last but not least, BMX flatlander Keelan Phillips.

This feature-length documentary follows each team as they set about making a brand new film here in the UK with their film-makers (Stu Thomson, Brett Novak, Claudiu Voicu and Kendy Ty). The premire of the four new films forms the centrepiece of the documentary.
