‘Where We Began’ – The Script
We chose the title of ‘Where We Began’ because it signifies the idea of what Chris talks about in the narrative of what his dreams were about becoming a freerunner and being able to do the stuff that they do in the movies.
The script below was written by the freerunner Chris Kinally.
I chase the feeling of complete control over my body. Developing the coordination and trust to be able to move myself how I want. I have always been driven by the fact that this is not ‘normal’.
People aren’t supposed to do what we do. Its classed as a fantasy, something you admire in movies. Something kids dream of being able to do. Through my own determination I made it a reality for me.
A huge part of my training is completely psychological. The potential of the human body is very inspirational for me. I see freerunning as releasing this physical possibility creatively. I don’t see walls as obstacles but opportunities to use this potential and enjoy moving like I always wished I could. I see things differently now.
I can’t stop noticing structures that would give me the opportunity to move creatively. Be it a wall, tree or just a curb each environment brings new opportunities to not only move and challenge myself but to enjoy moving.
I do what I do because it’s fun and it brings me instant gratitude.
