And there's the difference. My video editing talents (and patience) tops out with copying the video from the camera to the PC.

I actually snipped some videos from my Whistler trip to shorten them, but it turned out to be less work to just watch the boring parts.

Italian enema.

Everything was incredible except for the actual riding and I get that. Not bashing you on that, but if you're gonna put in the massive effort to make that crazy awesome edit you should get some pow shots and park to make it fun to watch. Without that it's more of a nature video, which was better than the fucking Planet Earth one.

Seriously, this is a ridiculously good edit. The shots, angles, editing, camera. Just the riding being something different would be cool. Nice job though.

SICK production value man. Seriously, that is some professionaly quality shit. Are you into film as a hobby or is it a career?

Unfortunately no one outside of your friends, fam, and some curious people on this forum are going to get past 3 minutes because a) there's not enough action to hook them in and b) you're not a famous snowboarder which would give someone a reason to stick around. I don't mean that in an asshole way either, no one would give a fuck if I made a 30 min vid with sick production value either. If the actual snowboarding was really high level than people would spread it around and say "stick with it past 3 minutes!" but unfortunately it's not.

Keep at it though! You definitely have filming and editing talent.

Yeah and that's my point:

As a homemade video, it's fantastic, unbelievable really!

As a snowboarding video it's just okay. The fact that it's long makes the average watcher skip over all the fancy stuff to get to the snowboarding.

I'd frikkin pay this guy to come make a video at Fernie or Louise though. Get some cool slow mo or time lapse shots, some scenic shit, and then just endless video of powder turns and people hucking themselves off cliffs!

OP, if you want to come practice I think I can put together a few riders that would like being filmed... You'd just have to come to Alberta!

First of all as a video memento of a snow trip with friends this would be epic. Some amazing shots in there, some of the transitional shots are amazing, beautifully shot slow mo magic, some cool boarding reflected in the goggle moments and having fun with friends on and off the snow to some well selected tunes.

However to reiterate the points of others, too long, too much. The opening is cool and very professional but then drags, this trend then continues.. Go pro is tough to get right, some shots are cool regardless of ability and lack of tricks, I'm not an advanced rider so enjoyed and appreciated some sections but you are editing so you should make it as cool and interesting as possible. But shots of just ski's or looking at yourself or rider at the time are not interesting to your average viewer and there are a lot of these.

I think if you shortened this up, tried a few things as riders (little jumps, kickers and spins) even if you fail it's funny and will look cool with your production skills. If you are going to tell a story, tell the whole story; the new, the fails, powdery terrain, the moments of magic for you guys on the slopes. Instead it was some cool editing with some very safe and simple riding.

Best thing I found making videos is that if you are in them let somebody else who isn't edit it with you, they will chop the dull and appreciate the cool.

Very cool overall, look forward to seeing the edited down version or your next attempt... What editing software did you use??

Once again, Amazing production, a little drug out too. I was mentally screaming at you to go into the pow. I did notice that the skier on twin tips was riding a little bit snowplow style. When he fell, it looks like this is what caused it. I'm not a skier, so don't quote me on that, but i do ride with enough to know a thing or two about it. More frequent trips will help with riding skill. I saw that the boarders in the group were kinda fishtailing mostly. nothing wrong with that, but other ways to turn can be really fun too! The point brought up about doing more different styles of riding and trying more things is also relevant. I would also say it looks like y'all shouldn't ride three days in a row. As far as editing skills go,

Art of flight might be cool, but its missing the 480p quality, sick song choices and and the over all feel of a snowboard video that did have a limited budget. Its ridiculous to say the least......
