6 Underground: How Michael Bay Does Action with Bayhem | | January 20, 2020

Behind the scenes footage from parkour group and 6 Underground stunt performers Storror shows Bay laying down beneath the arches as the athletes jump over him. The shot he ended up shooting is featured for less than 2-seconds because if there’s anything that Bay is better at than getting the perfect shot, it’s getting ten of them and intercutting them at a rate that ignores clarity in favour of pure thrill... read more


Michael Bay's 6 Underground is Netflix's craziest movie gamble yet | | January 16, 2020

The film’s biggest stunt – Four scaling down the side the Duomo dome – was performed by members of the Storror parkour team and captured by drone cameras.

Ben Hardy in Michael Bay's latest action-packed thriller '6 Underground' | | December 13, 2019

I worked with Storror, a very successful parkour crew in the modern world of social media and YouTube---they are just great athletes. What I found really interesting about training with them was just understanding their mindset, you have to be a very special kind of person to want to jump from one skyscraper to the next. For them, it was all about mental barriers. Any jump they do they first do on the ground level hundreds of times so they know up at that height they can make it... read more
