Hey everyone, I am trying to bring together a free-style video/movie, more of a home video, sort of thing. I'm not an experienced producer, I'm 14 but I think this movie will be really cool to show that Ottawa kicks ass! I'm looking for suggestions for what mountain to do it at, and looking for some people from the Ottawa area who are willing to volunteer there time to be in this video. Please post below with suggestion or anything else. Oh and one other thing I'm also looking to find some sponsors I'm not sure if I really need some but I think it would help, if anyone knows anybody who is willing to sponsor this movie please post below too.
go to calabogie man...they have a sick park as far as ottawa goes. edelweiss has some good riders that go often as well, but the park isnt very good. and try and make it out to the orage h&c events around ottawa this year for some good comp footage.
as well, try and get up to tremblant and elsewhere in quebec, because the parks there are above and beyond anything around here.
forget tremblant it is too cold, make a video of all the surrounding hills in ottawa and gatineau: vorlage, edelweiss, fortune, cascades,calabogie, which has the biggest park, the hill off the queens way, and all the good urban rails
yea bogie for sure.... and urban stuff.... if you gather up the right guys u will have a hell of a movie man.... and u can stay at my place if u need to stay near calabogie as long as im in your video..... -Nick Iwanyshyn
i bet this movie is going to suck. its going to be a bunch of 10-13 year olds cruising around on there 142s. hucking 270s off of two foot kickers. hanging multipul doo-rags from their belts. session peices of pvc lying on the ground. the filming is going to suck. it will be jerky, just like a bunch of 10-13 year olds. the date and time will still be in the corner.
Dude I don't care if it's a bunch of 10-13 year olds, it's a way of getting started. Thanks everyone for your posts and ideas, Calabogie it is, I'm aiming for mid Feb. or March. Thanks for all your suggestions and ideas.
hahaha 4-5 hours or filming will prolly not get you a 35 min video of good quality, dude like the pros they film like 1000's of hours for a 30 min vid...
What the hell were they doing with a car on the moon?... havent they gone far enough?
if u do it right ottawa can be mint. there are so many nice spots around here, rails and such... and the hills are pretty rad... and then there is local spots where u can make booters and get pretty rad tricks/air off.
basically the best thing you can do is get hooked up with riders man, if you just show up at the hill you might only get a few good shots, but if you meet up with certain riders then you'll be able to build full segments for each rider, otherwise you'll be left with 3 good shots from each rider, and a ton of riders.

I really want to get Ottawa somewhere, because right now were just like the Gouverment city. I think it is the one behind the hospital Mikee, thanks for your support. And thank you Ski Instructor for your advice, your totally right.
