Stu Thomson's video for Free by Rudimental and Emeli Sandé captures what must be the most extreme of extreme sports - wing-suit flying - and the results are absolutely breathtaking.  

Shot around Eiger Mountain in the Alps, the promo follows real life wing suit flyer and extreme sports athlete Jokke Soomer, as he climbs one of the peaks, and then jumps off. An amazing feat of courage and possibly sheer madness, its all brilliantly captured by Thomson and his cameraman Ben Fordesman - and via a camera within the suit itself. 

What's more, this runs parallel with a London-set story of a young boy escaping the bullies by taking up falconry - and then the the story strands come together...
