Granite Peak 2 looks nice. Well done on the editing. Also ‘Jib and Kicker’ very impressive on the shots and editing. I like the movement of the image. How did you manage to do that (during filming or editing)? And Which camera did you use?
‘Nitroboarder22’ on feedback to your comment. Generally speaking you can probably say that snowboarding has her own style of music (just like basketball or motorcross has). However, this does not mean that the music used in the edit does not fit or will not be liked by the majority of the snowboarders (and other sports enthusiasts). As a boarder myself, I think the music fits perfectly with the vibe that I am looking for. The refrain is meant for tranquility and building adrenaline. The couplet is meant for aggression/action.
You are right about the cut-away (filler) shots and lack of camera smoothness. You can also consider it as a (teaser) trailer, if you would like. I think a lot of snowboarding films are aimed at the action, instead of focusing on the emotion/state of mind of the boarders. For me that is way more interesting. But still, I want to see the action. I will not consider my ‘film’ as an ultimate outcome of what I had in mind. There still needed to be more action (and other improvements).
For now I will keep on practicing with camera and editing and moving on to other projects.
