Jump London DVD re-release and other PK bits

Here’s a sneak preview of the new Jump London DVD sleeve. It’s been re-designed to match the look of the Jump Britain DVD (the disc will feature the original content, though also sports a new look). It’s out next month!

Oh, and while I’m on the subject of Parkour, the U.S. publication Smithsonian Magazine ran a piece recently on the growth of Parkour in the post Casino Royale [2006] world. Read it online here.

I had lunch with Sebastien in Paris the other day and interesting to note that he’s stopped using the word Parkour again as he did when we were shooting Jump London, though he was using it again the following year when we made the sequel. He also told me some very interesting news about one future project, but swore me to secrecy. Sorry, lol.

Post-lunch, Sebastien and the wonderfully mad Jerome Dion (who worked with us on Jump Britain) in Paris, May 2007.


Coming home…

I’m lucky enough to have been to the “new-Wembley-Stadium” twice before last night, for the U21 opener and the FA Cup final. Last night was different: there was an amazing atmosphere for England v Brazil. It felt to me like last night was the real opening night, and, as the national stadium is the home of the national team, maybe it was.
