“Light Men” Do Virtual Parkour in Kuala Lumpur

by Range

I’ve always had a fascination with parkour. I’m not sure why, but it just looks so awesome. The trouble is that it’s a lot harder than it looks. Thankfully, in this advertisement by Lexus, you won’t have to do any parkour whatsoever.

STROBE was created by Adam Berg, and is part of a series of videos called Amazing in Motion. CGI effects are always impressive, but there’s nothing like filming the real thing. That’s one of the reasons why this video is just plain amazing. In order to pull off the illusion of a single parkour athlete running through the city, multiple LED suits, each containing 1,680 LEDs were used by stuntmen rigged up all over Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Each suit was connected wirelessly to DMX software running on a custom computer rigs, which triggered the strobe on cue in a pattern. A team of 40 engineers worked with the stuntmen, who were hanging all over the city.
