This Thread is here to answer all your Questions for Volume 2 of the NS movie, you can also pitch any cool ideas you have here
An article will be up tomorrow outlining the entire movie.
Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
There will not be a minimum resolution so you can submit both HD and DV footage, but the aspect ratio must be 16:9, this way there won't be any stretching, as for framerate, the standard framerate is usually 29.97 on most cameras, i would prefer if you didn't use 24 unless you're shooting on film, but by all means, if you want to shoot at a higher framerate for slow mo, go ahead
Next year, i think more people will have HD, so for now, we're gonna keep it open
as for the 2 clips idea, we want this to be a movie, not a mash up of 100+ riders, it's really to promote the best riders of NS that season, having only a few clips each would be a logistical nightmare, the way we're doing it this year, there will be about 20 riders in the movie, which i think is a good number for the movie
sorry about that, because of the short time frame i had, i didn't have time to get a lot of help in editing, it would have been a logistical nightmare, this year is different and I'll need lots of help...as for the trailer, yes it did suck, i agree, i made it in 15 mins because I was juggling school, IF3, moving to montreal, etc...watch the movie, it turned out sick
To the people saying that it should be HD only:
(No hate intended) Yes, some HD looks better than SD, but there is also really nice looking SD from the various 3 chip cameras. Unless Dave gets some sort of huge sponsor, I doubt he'll be outputting to Blu ray disc. Therefore, one would logically assume that it would make sense to be able to allow SD as well as HD. Just like the megapixel race with still cameras, people are jumping on the HD bandwagon like there isn't any other medium. I agree that HD looks nice, but SD is sick too. I'm not trying to cause any arguments I'm just putting my thoughts out.
This sounds like a sick idea.
First off props for keeping this up dave, this isn't really directed so much at you as it is to Doug and all the big wigs, I really think the NS movie is something to invest in, get some of that money from selling out going towards it, and I think you could probably pick up some sponsors dave, I'm sure you're pursuing that already though.
introduce a segment with a lot of riders. can be only a move per riders, king of innovation winners for example.
you could introduce more pro segment (like gus an ced)
and sell it on itunes for 2 bucks
What would be absolutely awesome, but not very possible considering the time, is if evey mountain that has NS at it, should do an edit. So that way, it would be like, ch1: Hood, ch 2: whistler. yea know? but i dont think it would happen due to the time it would take to put together and to rely on other people for the footage
in the article it asks for prizes from companys how many of these prizes are we talkin
please pm me dave
