Hollywood: the extreme parkour team whose challenging jumps drew the attention of the film industry

The septet of British Parkour specialists have accumulated over 600 million views Youtube and also worked on a Hollywood movie.
The group, which started on 10/10/10, celebrates its tenth anniversary this year and has traveled the world over the past decade, from Seoul to Madrid (one of the favorite destinations). But with the world inside confinement changes have been made.

They should be filming in Nepal, but are instead looking for ways to create content from home.

Living separately, the members of Storror filmed the videos themselves and then edited the footage together. But creating engaging content for their fans without encouraging them to break blocking rules is a fine line.

“I think it’s part of this whole maturity thing and that we learn to understand our responsibilities, as if we were taking the block seriously,” said Drew Taylor, professional parkour athlete and Storror member Sports of CNN.
While mastery of parkour has gone through years of training, the group – which includes Taylor, Toby Segar, Sacha Powell, Joshua Burnett Blake, Callum Powell and founders, Max and Benj Cave – have also put on seminars for refugee groups.

“I think most of us agree that we have exceeded our greatest expectations of what we wanted to do as a child,” added Taylor.

Going up into the world

Last year the group worked on the set of a Hollywood film after being invited by the award-winning Hollywood director Michael Bay – also director of the “Transformers” trilogy and the “Bad Boys” films – to watch the filming of ” 6 Underground “, his Netflix movie starring Ryan Reynolds and Dave Franco.

They were given the freedom to instruct experienced cameramen in the way they see fit, also acting as a stunt brace for the actors.

During their time on the set, the group also performed stunts in famous sites, such as the Florence Cathedral, while also training other actors in parkour basics.

Working on a Hollywood movie set was “an assertion that we were going in the right direction,” Segar, one of the members of Storror, told CNN Sport.

“He was skipping a lot of steps in the film industry in terms of knowing how they do it,” said Segar.

“It was a really crazy position, where we have control over these scenes and we have control over some elements of this hit film. But it was fantastic for the whole team.”

Make a toll

But in creating stunning videos, the bodies were pushed to the limit – which has consequences.

Segar – the 2015 winner of “Ninja Warrior UK” – remembered having beaten his four front teeth and breaking his collarbone, while Taylor broke his ankle.

“I guess that’s why we still do it after 14 years, because this kind of thing happens so rarely that it’s worth all the reward and how much it has improved our lives, like the physical benefits of the exercise or the friends I met through it, “Taylor – a world record holder for the longest frontal overturning – explained.

“The sense of reward and success you get from doing all these crazy things … If you break your ankle once every 14 years, I will take this risk because people break their ankles or arms to get drunk on the weekend and get out of town . It’s not that you’re completely safe if you don’t choose to take risks. ”
