Really great riding. Need some better filming and music. I love that song, but it didn't go well with the edit. Other than that it was really good.

This is awesome! needs more variety, and I'd ditch the fisheye lens(but I don't like fisheye lenses).

ThunderChunky can you expand more on the filming techniques? C.B. I generally try to stay away from fisheye but when you have people who don't know how to use the camera its easier to let them film with that rather than have them shoot long lens. Also what do you mean by variety? If your going by features I completely agree with you but there was a comp on the only other terrain park worth filming

I guess if either of you want to answer this question go ahead: How did the intro end up working out? I've had mixed feelings about it being a little over the top but then some people have said it worked really well...I kind of like it so unless other people think its dumb I'll probably use something like that for intros of my videos from now on (artsier, almost super8/bad tv effected type stuff). Thanks for taking the time to critique it though.

Yeah needs more features. But for what you had it was good.

Personally if i was going to spend the amount of time editing that you did I would have had at least another days worth of footage, probably footage from another hill too. But i think it was well done.

I liked the intro too.

david_z....thats my coach! haha...all in good fun though

C.B. for next Wednesday we filmed 2-3 days....still not too much though. We rarely go to other mountains except for competitions and at that point stress level is too high to film....I'm going to be in Colorado for 2 weeks soon so expect footy from here :D

yeah i had a hard time compositing that in and it couldn't go any lighter/less intense...i need to figure out how to do that better if I'm going to do it at all again...also could be computer screen making it dark i had that problem when i switched it to my laptop as opposed to the desktop i edit with

glad you like it too

Intro too long, bad song for a jib clip. Too much flat box stuff. Needs more kickers - I stopped watching after 3 minutes cuz little rails are boring as hell. Spin and flip off of kickers and ill watch the whole thing.
For jibbing go with hiphop or punk. Pink Floyd is for POW

When you are filming jibs film the riders face side, not their ass.

Great song! Good riding, But it was a bit over edited. Its nice when there is less effects and more solid shredding. Great job this season MSA and long live carinthia!!!

Editing and snowboarding is about creativity, and if I had used rap people woulda hated on that. And your going to make fun of a 9 1/2 year old kid for killing it on a flat box? Give it a year or 2 and he'll be doing it on a down bar....progression.

Also, 10 of the 16 riding shots after the 3 minute mark were jump shots.

Filming butt shots is better then filming straight into the sun and having so much glare you can't see the shot, and be aware that apart from me, no one knows how to work my camera so they were guessing on what to do

Explaining the situation....critiquing also goes along with saying nice things about it and what you liked. What the person did good and what they didn't, not hate on some kids trying to film and have fun....why don't you send me one of your professionally made videos so i can learn how its done.

BTW, you've got a shout out in the next Wednesdays With Will ;)

I think the music thing is more about tempo and creating a vibe. The song you chose just didn't fit the tempo of the clip IMHO.

Maybe try a few tunes of different styles out when you got some rough editing down and see where that leads (you've prob done this anyway!).

Don't take anyones criticism of your music selection to heart. You like what you like :thumbsup:

Only other thing can add is maybe to incorporate more lines to create a sense of flow. Less jumpy and it'll save editing time too...

Looks good otherwise man. Good stuff
