Single Edit
Just sharing for others. Don't really give a fuck about your criticism cause I didn't film it only edited it. The filler(Water Falls,Bus,etc.) shots are mine so feel free to bitch about them. Everything else I can't help ya with.

And do yourself a favor and fast forward to 3:13 if you don't wanna watch it. I promise you'll be happy as MJ in a Pre-School.

So if you have any criticism as far as editing goes I'm all ears excluding your bitching about shit I obviously have no control over........ I.E. "your park sucks", "it's too cloudy", "the snow is too white", and the classic "I don't like the music."

I don't have Vegas Pro yet so I know the text is shaky I had to track it manually and it is shitty. Any tips? Slow mo tips appreciated too besides buying Twixtor or shooting with high FPS (I have 60FPS).

Holy shit 3:13... Any teeth lost in the making of this edit?

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! VIMEO please use it!

The reverse shot should go. It's just a pointless look at me shot.

Some of those follow cam clips cut the guy out of frame briefly you want to watch that. Also there's a filter in Final Cut called Steady Cam, it will take out some of the vibrations.

The chairlift filler has a quick glance of the filmer looking into the camera, that should go.

First clip of Scott where he washes the landing should be cut. It's not landed which takes away from him looking like a good rider.

First, are those the Windmills down by Springville? Second that filler is meh I wouldn't have used it or if I did maybe have added a darker tone to it with color correction.

And Jesus that ender! Any chance I can get that clip for my #instaslams series?

Oh and slomo advice. Best I can say is don't ramp before you slow it down and just make sure that the music matches the speed you set it at as well as making sure you don't make it so slow that it becomes choppy. I noticed that a bit but I also blame Youtube as they degrade quality.

First photo is eh whatever. Second one would be better if you had concentrated on the rider more and less on getting the wide spanning epic foothills of WNY. Also if doing action shots try to time it so you get the rider more inverted or grabbed better.

The only shit thing about Vimeo is there craptastic bandwidth. At least youtube plays in HD every time and plays on both my phone and my computer. Vimeo on my phone (4g or lte not wifi) will always buffer for 10 fucking years. Meanwhile I've already watched the clip 8 times on youtube.

I never have that problem on my 3g iPhone 4s and living in the boonies with shit 3g you would think that's an issue.

ShredLife 05-09-2014 11:09 AM

whoever shot that sucks. way too far away on most shit, and terrible angles and perspectives. borderline unwatchable.

eli783 05-09-2014 12:09 PM

Theres definitely a few shots that could be left out but definitely an enjoyable edit. NY stand up!

ThunderChunky 05-09-2014 09:45 PM

Yea the shooting was out of my control. Believe it or not lmao it is stabilized. I use the lower version of Sony Vegas. I stabilized it in there. I know what you're talking about with the clips that I should have axed and I agree, but I needed clips and didn't wanna fill it with more fucking leafs and shit.

And I would love to use Vimeo, and do. I just use youtube cause it's got a wider viewership. Unfortunately people are retarded and watch youtube more than vimeo. I have both.

And yea I can make a single clip of that last one if you want it. Believe it or not he never got hurt on that or the one where he smacked his face.

As for the photo, I only have a 18-55 lens so I couldn't zoom anymore. I agree it needs to be zoomed further but I was on the lift and that was as far as it would go.

Thanks for the tips. Next season will be filmed by me and trust me it'll be smooth. Mulled over a Movi but ain't got the $$$. Gonna use my DSLR to film too along with getting a real Camcorder not some Sony Handycam POS.
