I'm facing some problems though. They're kind of the most important part of an edit though haha.
Well, I ski a lot. My mountains been open for a few weeks now and I try to go up everyday. The problem is, I go by myself. I don't really have any friends that ski. So I was thinking maybe I could make an edit of myself.
I do a lot of photography, but I've never done much with video before.
I have a Nikon D7000 that I use for photography, but I could possibly use it for a little video too. I also have an older handycam laying around and a flip video camera from god knows how long ago. I have a semi-decent tripod it's a Manfrotto 055XPR0B, which all of my shots would be tripoded or POV with my little flip. So equipment-wise I think I would be alright.
The way it would be shot would be kinda boring but I don't have another way to do it. I would probably set up the tripod at a feature or halfway down a trail and then hit it with the camera recording. It will probably be a lot of work but whatever. Maybe I can find someone to just move the camera around for me.
Any tips or advice? I have a perfect song for it already. It goes along with the by myself type of thing. If people want me to post it I will but I don't want to give it away!
I was just thinking about it a little more and I think it's gonna end up being like this: If I do it well and take my time with it and do it right, it will be cool and different since no one really, Shoots, skis and edits their own edit.
Most likely it will turn out boring and sloppy though.
Does anyone think I should at least try it? Or not even bother?
i will present to you one edit. it should change your mind on how sick an edit someone can make by filming themselves with tripod shots only. go for it dude, if it turns out anything like this, then it will be sick. be creative with your angles and it will be fine.
