Man I'm really digging this video. Do you mind sharing what editing software you used? Mac or PC? I've got iMovie on my Macbook but I haven't tried to learn it yet. Do you have a lot of editing experience? I'm wondering if I even have a chance of making something like this as my first edit.

I'm getting married in Whistler (yes, my fiance rocks) in February and we're staying for 2 weeks. I want to make a video very similar to this with a good mix of snowboarding, village life, snowmobiling, etc. Your video is what it's all about...it's well balanced.

Is ALL of your footage shot w/ a GoPro? I just got my Contour HD in the mail and I'm wondering if I should get a "real" camcorder as well.

Thanks for feedback.

Thanks for the kind words. Yes every single shot in this was done with a gopro. I use a i7 imac running final cut studio 3. My advice would be to get final cut express and play around with it and see if your truly into editing. If you are you can then move onto the bigger stuff. This entire video could have been done in final cut express except for the color balancing and grading which i did in apple's "color". Good luck and have fun.

how many pixels did you film? why couldn't you include the 920p guy???

i was thinking of getting the 960 camera since it's cheaper. did you film in 60 fps? saw you did some sick slow mo. the fps helped on the slow motions?

First few days were filmed at 960p. I could have used it but i would have had to crop it down to fit the rest of my footage. Using 720p and 1080p together isnt as hard since you only have to scale the 1080p down a little. I would film 720p 60fps about 95% of the time. When coformed properly it came make for some really silky slow mo. I dont think i ever went down past more than a 60% speed change in the entire project. I could have easily went to 45% and lower with very little to no jaggedness. I plan on using twixtor for this years edit to drop some clips down to even 20% or lower smoothly.

If i had to make a recommendation to you it would be to save up for a little longer and buy the real camera. I feel like the 960p isnt going to be what your looking for in the look run.
