Great stuff.

I think you will find that each video will get better and better as you learn. In the beginning most people go crazy with the library of transitions available in most video editing applications, which is distracting, but gradually their focus moves to the content, which is what it's really all about.

The video always looks slower than it felt at the time, particularly with a helmet mounted camera. A helmet mount is good as a follow cam, if you're close enough, but it's doesn't really convey your own perspective in a particularly interesting or accurate way. This year I'm going to try a pole mount with my Contour for a bit of variety. There are some pretty good examples of the different perspectives you can get on YouTube and Vimeo.

Yeah, I've posted a couple of videos and the most I've done is edited out some standing-around time in the tree-run vid. Doesn't get any more spartan than that!

okay everyone here it is! sorry it took me so long but that adobe premiere sucks major ballsack. I did the trial on vegas movie studio and it rocks. way easier to move around (i.e. 2 hours for same video it took 8 hours to make in adobe).

I am open to criticism but please don't be too harsh. First video edit. Also open to criticism on my riding but please keep in mind this was my first year in park and started season 12 weeks from a broken fibula.

congrats buddy, you just made me ache for another trip to the park......dammit.


Riding looked pretty good! You don't need to justify your riding saying how you aren't pro and how you got hurt yada yada, it still looked pretty cool! To make those tricks you had in the vid look better, in my opinion, is to "clean them up" and be more solid on the feature. Ya know? Looked locked in on it and not like you are just trying to make it to the end. But other than that it looked good. As far as the video goes i always try my best to really get the video in sync with the music. Both with the cuts and shot changes to the pace and tone of how the section of video is going. For park edits usually sharp jump transitions work good because you are usually showing one trick at a time and are hoping from clip to clip. So you don't want to take a bunch of time on the transition if the clip it self is only 3-4 seconds long. The spot where you are bobbing your head at 1:34...IMO unnecessary and looks a tad ridiculous. It doesn't add much to the vid and it almost just something the watcher has to sit though and wait for the rest of the vid to continue. Those are just things I noticed that are my opinions. Over all I think the edit looked good and riding looked good too! Nice work!

Thanks for the video.

I'm pretty much with the OP, although I haven't watched the video with sound yet.

I'll mention a couple of other things:
  • Personally, I missed the pole camera shots from the first video - this may or may not fit with what you are trying to achieve this time around, but you might want to think about it for the next one (in the park, through the trees, pow, etc). You can get great footage from in front, the side, behind and above.
  • Remember that when using a helmet cam your head is a camera platform - shaking your head and looking down can be disorienting in video, particularly if you speed it up and/or combine the two. I noticed it a couple of times in the video.

To add to IF's post, work backwards from the beat of the music and try to get the right sequence of clips to match. Sync the pop, stomp and cuts with the beat. Dissolves convey a sense of passing time, like between two days or different runs. They can work between features in the park too but may be a bit "soft" for the music.

I look forward to the next one.

Unsurprisingly, it was even better with sound.

yea this season was really learning how to work the camera angles, etc. the helmet cam is only good on a few things and finally picked up a lost pole on the last day of the season. I def like how that worked out following a rider with and never got around to holding it with facing me. I was at the mercy of my friends who aren't very good at riding let alone riding and filming at same time. i was lucky to even get this stuff as they missed a lot of my bigger stuff.

I liked when you were drinking on the lift. Did that happen to be a blue ribbon?
