Zombie Parkour - The Flipping Dead

The zombie virus has evolved into a new breed of parkour zombies.  No longer do they slumber as the walking dead, they are ferocious and fast, they are the flipping dead.

A post apocalyptic world with zombies sounds scary right? The zombies we have come to know and love are the limping, snarling zombies that are easy to take out with the right kind of weapons, but what if the virus evolved? What if the virus made the dead faster and more animalistic? In this fun youtube video we get to see a different world of zombies. Attracted by the flare in the sky no obstacles slow them down, parkour has become their nature and free running their prowess.

I was the stunt coordinator of this project. I would have loved to be a part of the actual action, but because of a back injury the most I could do is jump to a ledge and shoot a flair. My vision of this video was to show what a world with zombie's would be like if they could do parkour and free running? Before I even planned for this video I was aware of the area it was filmed in. I knew I wanted to do a parkour video there I just had to come up with the right idea to pull it off as an awesome video. I started thinking about how could make post apocalyptic parkour video in that area. Then I was talking to Cameron Manwaring and he had the idea to incorporate zombies that do parkour and go from there.

The story is simple, its a world with zombies but crazy scary parkour zombies. They are attracted to light which is why I shoot the flare into the sky at the beginning. Then when I have them corralled and trapped inside the walls I drop a grenade on them. 

The zombie's in this video are my fellow friends and stunt team members of CBR Stunts.  They do some awesome parkour and free running videos as well as some crazy fight choreography.
