1. What makes the professional skier segments edits? Keep in mind skiing, filming and editing?
Well the skiing is number 1. Next I guess the shots have to look good so thats important. Editing is last because a poorly edited segment can still be good. In some cases though the editing makes it good.
2. What makes the best amateur edits?
Seeing people like you doing stuff like the pros.
3. When seeking out media to see skiers in action, what form do you normally go for? Ski films, competitions, events on tv, magazines, etc?
4. why did you produce a segment style edit? Why not something different?
Its interesting and fun.
5. in terms of the way you shot and edited your short, where did you get your filmmaking ideas from?
I guess other ski movies.
6. why did you select the music that you did? If it was already in another ski film, why did you use the same music? Did you pick music that was similar to certain ski films? Why?
I picked it because I liked it. Some of it was in other ski movies, mostly because of coincidence.
7. To what degree do you feel that you were influenced by professional ski films?
8. Do you think you are emulating (copying, imitating to produce something of equal quality) professional ski films?
I guess I use the same format so yes.
9. If you answered yes to no. 8, why do you do this?
It's easy and what everyone else does.
