The Child Jumpers

Short Film (Full Length) – 2011

Friends that play together, stay together. In 2011 team Grand Cheval which included ex-Mt Maunganui College mates Tom Furniss, Tim Armstrong and Cam Neate triumphed at the 48Hours film contest with this mockumentary about four mates who get their kicks 'chumping' jumping over children, adults, prams and sometimes, entire families in broad daylight. Ricky (Tim Batt, from podcast The Worst Idea of All Time) "lives to chump" and passes the passion on to his friends and German backpacker Johan (Cam Neate). When one of the friend decides to up sticks to Australia, the gang face a new chapter.

Listen there's something I've got to explain to you, man. I don't chump to live...I live to chump.
