We all watch a lot of ski edits, and essentially, what matters (and why we watch them) is for the skiing.
Equally, however, we all notice when an edit is really good.
It's rare to come across an original approach to filimg/editing skiing. I'm just wondering what people's thoughts are here - can we build upon that well-known edit format, and create a new style of ski edit? Or is such a progressive approach a waste of time?
Interesting question, I think that it is hard to create a truly new and origional edit format but I try to imitate the parts of edits that I like and develope my own style that is a conglomerate of others ideas and styles. I am also really interested in linearity in edits, like J P 's all I can segment. I tried to make an edit in that linear, more artistic style last year ( it's in my profile) and I am planning in trying to make a few more like it this year. I also think that storytelling should play a bigger role then it does. Sorry for any typos, I'm on mobile
Some people who don't take skiing seriously take not taking skiing seriously way too seriously. Seriously.
Hey *CUMMINGS*, what is park skiing to you?
"It's like white people trying to be black by listening to rap with the added element of baggy clothing and attempting to emulate blackleticism by doing gymnastics on jumps and rails."
