UK Parkour Athlete Creates Video Game-Inspired Death-Defying POV Video

Remember back in early July, when we shared a breathtaking POV parkour video shot by athlete James Kingston of the Ampisound team? Many compared that video to the parkour-influenced first person video game Mirror’s Edge, and Ampisound was quick to mention that any resemblance was totally and completely intentional.

The team took it to another level in their newest video, however, by dressing team member Neil Cointet up in the same clothes as the game’s protagonist Faith Connors and having him go on a little jaunt with a camera attached to his head.

Of course, little jaunt might be a bit of an understatement. Descriptors like “terrifying,” “exhilarating,” “death-defying” and “vertigo-inducing” are more on the money.

Cointet flies over the rooftops of Cambridge for two and a half minutes that’ll have you holding your breath. And once you’ve finally exhaled, we suggest you watch the original Mirror’s Edge trailer below to see just how accurate Ampisound went on this one.

The video was shot as a tribute to Mirror’s Edge 2, which was announced at this year’s E3 conference. If you like what you see, be sure to show Ampisound some love on their YouTube channel, and you might just get to see more. “If it does well,” says the team in the video’s description, “we’ve got some plans for a second one!”
