You may remember a parkour video shot entirely on the Nokia Lumia 920 which involved in some scenes, an octocopter. Here’s a behind the scenes look at how Nokia filmed it.

Message from Nokia:

Hi My Nokia Blog,

We wanted to put the video capture capabilities of the Nokia Lumia 920 to the test – so we filmed Red Bull’s freerunning World Champion Ryan Doyle and traceur (that’s the official title for a male parkour practitioner) Will Sutton showing off their latest tricks. You can see the results for yourself here:

How we made it happen:

To capture a range of different parkour perspectives, we filmed the two athletes using twelve Nokia Lumia 920s, GoPro harnesses,Octocopter and a hand-held Glidecam. To learn more plus exclusive behind the scenes footage, check out our latest video here:

The result is clear. With the best low-light performance in a smartphone to date, and the added benefit of Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), the Nokia Lumia 920 makes it easy to capture all the action – day or night.
