Essentials: Victor Lopez
PROFESSIONAL FREERUNNER AND STUNTMAN
Given the moniker “Showtime,” Victor Lopez knows a thing or two about getting the job done as a professional freerunner and stuntman. Director of the Tempest Freerunning & Parkour Casio G’zOne Commando Video, Lopez has worked with brands such as K-Swiss, Mazda, and has performed stunts on the set of Fast & Furious, Battleship, The Hunger Games, Tropic Thunder and Crank 2, to name but a few. Juggling his freerunning career (one of the founders of Tempest Freerunning) along with his role as a stuntman, Lopez gives us a look at some of his essentials including the footwear he wears during rigorous training, the gadgets used to keep track of his hectic schedule, and the backpack of choice when carrying everything around.
