Parkour at Hi Pet Film Fest

Parkour at Hi Pet Film Fest

What's Parkour? Ask anyone you see jumping off buildings (safety precautions in place of course), then skateboarding down 5 flights of concrete, parachuting off a cliff into a ravine then bicycling over a 6 foot wall into a duck pond... then use your imagination to envision what more awesome physical feats a seasoned, well trained, athlete involved in this underground world wide sport could possibly do  Because they do it all.

Originally inspired by the regimen of  french military physical training (par cours or something akin to this) taken to the streets around the world, now replace the human with a beautiful DOG doing amazing feats and you've got last year's winning video by Ozzi (parkour officionado and local Hawaii instructor) at the HAWAII PET FILM FESTIVAL 2009.

This year we welcome Ozzi and other great videographers to the 2nd Annual Hi Pet Film Fest held this year at Ward Center. To those who don't have pro gear, don't be shy, if you're not a film student or pro there are categories in which you can prevail!  Take your cell phone and videotape whatever comes to mind. Cute and adorable is good! Children's work is most welcomed. Great prizes in many categories and cash and prizes to the winning over all Best Video.

Nov 6 at Ward (free to public and free parking) is when the videos are screened at end of day after the festivities. Dog fashion shows, vendor booths, costume contest, food, music, and pets alert! Bring your human with you. This is a pet and human friendly event for the entire family.  KUMU radio Frank B. Shaner hosts, Hawaii Pet Magazine and with Ward Centers sponsor this 2nd Annual Hawaii Pet Film Festival.  Submit videos to

Free admission! Bring Fido and the entire Family!  Wanna see more pet videos to get inspired? Visit us at Pacific

    This sounds like fun!

    I'm working on my dog's video now. Any tips?


  2. Wally:

    Parkour is cool if you know what you're doing.


    Hi Sally,
    Tips? Keep it simple, capture the best of your dog because what you love about your pet is what we'll see if you can get it on video. There's a new imovie program for non professionals. We hear it's really good and so simple to use. Have fun and good luck on your ruff cut! See you at the film festival on Nov 6th.
