j.w.vI felt that the glitchy effect seemed out of place, didn't really match the flow of the edit and it came off as somewhat disjointed. GoPro shots felt a little murky in comparison to the DSLR footage. Not sure whether your lense has stabilization or not, but that could potentially help with the shakier glidecam footage.
Good starting point though, with a little bit of fine tuning here and there I'm sure that the edits you make next season will be great
Dan.LocksI feel that edits are an expression of how you see skiing and how ever you want to portray it to other people. the beauty of skiing and filming is that its one of the few things in life that has no rules regulations or restrictions. I think it was a solid edit
DorianFfirst off i want to say that I enjoyed the edit thoroughly. Are you an Edmonton local by any chance? I've filmed with mark and ryan before is why I ask.
I have a few suggestions as to what you could improve for the next edit.
First thing I noticed is the color corrections in the edit. what programs are you using to color correct? if you aren't using resolve i highly recommend downloading it. its a free program and works absolute wonders when it comes to color correcting. there was a lot of the shots that looked like you could add a little bit more contrast and sharpness to them to help give the colors a little bit of extra punch. A lot of shots of ryan look like they were filmed on his 6d, am I right on that? if that is the case the picture profile that the camera gives a really flat image that gives you a lot more dynamic range in post. if you don't add a litte bit of contrast, saturation, and sharpness though the colors look really dull. Add just a touch of each after white balancing in post and the colors really start to come alive.
Another thing that i noticed is that there was a few shots that were pretty shaky. Perhaps use a little bit of warp stabilizer in after effects (or Sony stabilize in Vegas) to try to smooth some of them out. you have to be careful with those plugins though as it is really easy to use too much and make your footage look like jello. additionally they dont always work on every shot.
Overall enjoyable edit, Keep it up!
