This chapter focuses on interviews over a five year period with California traceurs of all skill levels. From beginners to the more advanced (ages 13-27) they all share their stories of how the discipline of parkour is having a positive effect in their own personal lives. 
<br /> <br /> When you are confronted with mental and physical obstacles, parkour teaches you how to "think different," how to overcome challenges, and how to empower yourself to live a better life. In the "Life Stories" chapter presented here -- the style and tone is intended to be more "self-reflective" -- revealing a more personal perspective on the young people involved with parkour. 
<br /> <br /> Future chapters can cover parkour pros demonstrating advanced techniques, the acrobatics of freerunning, competition, overcoming fear, "parkour-vision," acceptance from family and friends, a possible parkour roadtrip in Europe that mixes traceurs from different cultures, etc. Use of miniature GoPro HD video cameras and possible 3D segments can be explored.

This concept of efficience relates to different parameters, such as speed, fluidity, security, carefulness, capability to adapt to any situation, and economy of energy. In consequence, this is what we try to reach when we make these videos, and so we try to keep these various parameters inmind while drawing our path and filming it.<br /> Anyway, as it is a film, we don't just do things, but choose to show the things we do and try to do it in an aesthetic and artistic way. That implies choices that sometimes prevent us from being the most efficient we could if we would not be making a film. Exemple: the armjump at 2:56 was surely not the most efficient way to go on the other side (especially as I couldn't climb the wall with the tree on top of it, and had to go on the right with a strange technique). I could have ran directly on to the right wall, which is smaller and just climb it a lot faster, and spending a lot less energy. Anyway, I wanted to use the spot the better I could, and adding the armjump in this combination of moves was a fairly good challenge to me too, so I chose to work on this possibility. In these cases, we just take things on the "kid thinking" side, and pretend we cannot touch the floor for example because it's lava. Anyway, don't worry, I am conscious there is no lava...but there could have been! :-)</i>"<br /> <br /> 3 runs by L'1consolable, in Paris (France).
