Visited – Rudimental’s ‘Free’ – Emotional Base Jumping


This week: an impressive heart melter.

Directed by Stu Thomson, the official video for Rudimental‘s ‘Free feat. Emeli Sandé, ALSO features the colossal balls and ‘FUCK YEAH!’ talents of skydiver and BASE jumper Jokke Sommer. Like a flying Squirrel in a shell suit, the extreme sports lunatic slices through the cool air of the Alps: the magnificent Eiger mountain to be precise. The visual required no post-production – these stunts are 100% authentic. Witness ‘ere real life and RIDONKULOUS shit-your-pants talent.

Rudimental don’t fuck around, they went straight to the top with this one – massive production value and full scale, award winning crew. Director and visionary Stu Thomson – owner of CutMedia Film – is renowned for his unique concepts and visually dazzling films; most notably for his work alongside BMX rider and close friend Danny Macaskill. Last year he directed Red Bull’s largest online international campaign of 2013, a film with Danny named ‘Imaginate’. Basically, he’s a badass.

The music video, Part Kez – part ifredbullmadedancevideos – is a stunner. This is a coming of age story which touches on a subject we can all relate to – finding your place in the world. Warms the cockles it does!
