June 6th, 2009, was officially National Parkour Day, and many Parkour and Freerunning teams across the U.S. held jams in all the major cities. Aero Chicago Parkour held their own jam at the University of IL-Chicago, and though weather conditions made things a bit slippery at times, the vigilant traceurs continued jamming throughout the day. Emmanuel went out to film footage for the group, and though he could only stay for about 3 hours, he managed to get alot of amazing footage, and hopefully give people a glimpse of how close the Parkour/Freerunning community is in the Chicago land area. This video features good friend Ryan "Cloud" Cousins, along with other Aero members Cody Beltramo, Michael "Frosti" Zernow, Jacob Carlson, Emanuel Yarn, Travis Polad, and LBP member Alex "Fresh Face" Meglei. Enjoy!

Back in 2007, Steve James of Komelion Productions, Inc. contacted Emmanuel about a web series he was producing, directing, and starring in called "Assignment 47".
Emmanuel went and helped out Steve, action directing the fight shot for the first episode, and helped train Steve in film fighting. The action sequence featured LBP member Jessie Bayani and good friend Jon L. Brody.
Yet it would take nearly 2 more years for the web series to finally premiere it's first two episodes, which you can view on the newly debuted site here:
The site so far has the first 2 episodes up, info about the story, cast, and crew, as well as other extra features, and will be constantly updated as time goes on, debuting more episodes and info about the production.
The fight scene in the first episode is cut short for story reasons, but you can view the fight in it's entirety here:
