In his hometown of Frankfurt, freerunner Jason Paul experiences a pitch-black day. But no problem, he turns back time and undoes what has happened with breathtaking moves.
What makes ‘Running Reverse’ different from any other video project I’ve done so far is that I perform the freerunning action backwards, against the normal course of things.
As smoothly and effortlessly as Jason Paul runs backwards through Frankfurt in the video, jumps onto boats and climbs meter-high scaffolding, the filming was as elaborate as it was. But that’s exactly the kind of moment Jason Paul lives for. For the perfect result, he and the we as a film crew, invested up to 18 hours a day.
