rmcdonough13Not bad boys good shit...only advice would be add some different features felt like you guys only filmed on like 3 features
isaacwright33I liked it, it was fun to watch. But the cuts are pretty sharp. Get some footage of a full run and then cut it down so it goes smoother. The different angles are nice but i think you have too many for just one feature
rmcdonough13I ski at Sunday river where do you guys ski?
yasgur99I thought that it was pretty good. The song gave me a headache though
DorianFGood edit overall, a couple pieces of advice
your introduction cinematic order should be changed IMO, it is easier to follow a story line if you have some landscape shots then cut to the skiers - or parking lot footage or something. it just felt really disjointed to have an opening shot of skiers at the top of the hill, then to have the next shot from the chairlift. i feel like it would tell a better story if you started with the chairlift shots then moved to the skier - just a nice logical order that your viewers can identify with
along the same lines as the first comment i feel as though you should introduce the skier before you show a trick from them (or at least introduce them as they are riding away - something where you know who it is before the action starts. with your first rider you didnt introduce them until their second clip - just seems slightly disjointed and hard to follow
I think you need to pay a little bit more attention to framing. there were a few shots where the skiers head etc was cut off by the top of the frame example is at 22 seconds. just run a couple of test runs before you get your skier to hit the feature, make sure that you arent cutting them from the frame - its fine to cut them from the frame for some shots just make it intentional when you do it (for example a super close shot of their boots and skis as they switch up over a kink in a rail)
your followcams could have a bit tighter of a frame. what i mean by this is you were typically behind your skier perhaps come to the side - get lower so that they are completly in the frame and get closer so they fill it (without cutting peices of them off) - just get creative, dont use the same follow angle for every clip
thats pretty much all that i seen with it, hopefully that helps - keep up the good work!
