it is to hard to get clean movie quality follow cam shots. The movie would not look near as good. You can maybe set up for two jumps or two rails in a row but that is about it. They are trying to make a masterpiece and the cleaner and better shots they have for the film the better it will turn out.
yeah. maybe you've not been watching Andreas Hatveits segments the last two years... or perhaps you didn't see any JOI footy. Orrr, maybe you didn't see Seven Sunny days. It's kinda scary jumping 80+ feet with a 10 pound camera, that costs $5000.
Follow cams are shaky and not the greatest quality. A whole video of them would be ugly and very unpleasant to watch. Zip-lines and cablecams would still allow for smooth video shots that could be integrated into a video much better.
Maybe the problem with the whole "lots of snow and cat time hours" is because we're trying to be way too extreme.
Lets build the biggest kicker we can for another double-flip combo.
The movies I like best, for the most part are snowboard movie with a certain style. Think Blank Paper Studios. A nice mix of fun, creative tricks. Lines. A smattering of big mountain stuff. Banger tricks off a one or two jump BC set up.
Charles Gagnier in Skimatic has some in his segment. Like a part where he kills four-fives rails in a row, a part where he kills several kickers in a row if I remember well and a part where he slides then does a litlle urban drop.
Yes its hard, thats the point. more cred to the filmer and more cred to the skier if he does multiple good tricks. The same reason follow cam lines are more cred in skate vids. its harder to do 6 good tricks clean, in a row, than 1 ultra mega trick by itself. The same reason why Tanners segment in PYB was so sick, because half his shit was stuck first try. Things like this give you something to think about with the athletes abililties.
there was a double booter line in The Front LIne.
There was a multi jump line in Focused (ithink) when Pollard joined Mack Dawg on their timberline shoot.
Zip lines are doable. Hell MSP has a heli flying 90% of the time. Why not film Brecks big line rather than building the same old at Whistler?
yes agreed. one hit shots are boring as hell. it isnt that hard to do film lines. snowboard flicks got plenty of em!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!its just lack of creativity. i dont see what technical problems getting a line, bombing down a trail with mad rollers, throwing nasty rotations of em on film poses.
