Forest Jump (A Short Freerunning/Orienteering Film)

A short film filmed to promote Orienteering and to make it more widely known, 'cooler' if you may by adding a twist of freerunning and parkour to it! The idea behind the video is where one competitor is dreaming about the race the next day and fantasizing about what it'll be like, doing flips through the forest and moving really efficiently, then suddenly at the end his opponent is beating him and so the only thing left to do is to throw he brikke at the control, and then he awakes from his dream, confident and motivated about the race. We shot this video for Moravian Orienteers which both Harry and I belong to and compete regularly! (well mainly me!)

I hope this video appealed to you and gave you the urge to try it out! To contact Moravian Orienteers for more information go to their website!

Orienteering is a sport that uses a compass and map to navigate through a landscape. Polish your skills while having fun.

Step 1: Register
Register for the orienteering course. You will be given a map, a control description, and a control card. You will also be given the option of renting a compass if you have not brought your own.

Tip
The control description describes features such as the path, a junction in the path, or a large rock where each control, or destination, can be found.

Step 2: Use the map
Use the map to determine which direction you need to head to reach your first control. Turn the compass housing so that your direction aligns with the direction-of-travel arrow on the compass's housing.

Step 3: Hold the compass
Hold the compass level in your hand so that the needle can turn. Turn the compass so that the needle aligns with the grid lines on the housing.

Tip
Be sure the north end of the compass needle is pointing north. Otherwise you will head off in the opposite direction to which you intend.

Step 4: Proceed in the indicated direction
Proceed in the direction the travel arrow is pointing.

Step 5: Punch your control card
Use the punch to mark your control card when you reach your destination. This will prove you have visited the control. Visit all controls before the other orienteer and win the game.

Did You Know?
Orienteering began in Scandinavia in the 19th century.
