NAME: Light Emitting Dudes
AUTHOR: Frank Sauer, a director, designer and animator from Germany.
DESCRIPTION: Freerunners equipped with custom made LED suits take a wild run in the Bangkok night. The stunts performed by Jason Paul, Shaun Wood, and Anan Anwa, coming respectively from Frankfurt, Sydney and Bangkok, look even more exceptional in the dark. Between the broken LEDs, discharged batteries and problems with the traffic police, the shooting was not an easy ride but the result makes up for these difficulties.
AMUSEMENT RATE: The video can make some of you cringe, mostly because of its somewhat overrated DSLR effects but the weird mix between TRON characters and Christmas lights coming to life is still pretty fascinating. The speed and agility of the freerunners perfectly blend in the busy Bangkok nightlife and make for a great hypnotic show.
