I have huge respect for those who put great edits together consistently. I have never seen great skiing in a lousy edit. Well thats not true, there are many of these gangsta lyrics with MF this and that and poke a hoe and suck my dick that have no place in a skiing edit. IMHO of course! thats me.
On the other hand I have seen many a great edit with good skiing and they are just as enjoyable if not more so.
I had the recent experience to spend 12 hours on an edit with the objective of using a unique song The Salmon Dance then capturing, cutting, arranging, and editing 300+ clips to fit the lyrics, all the while trying to make sure I captured the fun of event and include all the skiers there with at least a shot, while still trying to match the beat and chorus and ..... WTF! 12 hours later for 4 minutes? http://www.newschoolers.com/web/content/viewvideo/id/266999/
I threw the Jackie Kling edit together in less than an hour, with little thought, just a late night stab at trying to get it finished before a deadline and it has been more popular than I could have ever imagined. http://www.newschoolers.com/web/content/viewvideo/id/261289/
Why is that?
