bjc28I have to write a paper on an argumentative topic and this is the topic that I chose to do. I am linking it to skiing, however if you feel like talking about non ski things then go for it. I chose Newschoolers as my source. Make me proud.
@LANTASKIFilming has killed the traditional Ski Movie
SessionUh...no it has not.
FredyFerlWith the way things are now, people won't have anything to look back to in a couple of years, as opposed to a couple of years ago where people were saving their footage to make an edit. Most people these days can't even save their footage for like a week.
I'm someone who likes to rewatch stuff, and right now with Instagram it's super hard to go rewatch stuff and fuck, most of the time I don't even remember what I just watched on that thing. Don't get me wrong, it is a really cool plateform, I like that you can post clips without it being a big deal, but I preferred the way things were 4-5 years ago.
Think about it, this year, there's barely been any edits, and I haven't seen a good web series since like Good Enough or Tabarnak Pack's gone.
Mr.BishopMovies is a whole other story.
Mr.BishopThe problem is - people just aren't watching longer format stuff the way they used to. And I'm only talking 3-5 minutes here.
eheathI think the amount of filming is fine, its the distribution that is starting to bother me. There are way less edits and way more instagram clips than ever. I'd be more stoked to see kids focus a week or two of filming into an edit instead of posting two tricks a day to instagram...
Mr.BishopI mean filming is part of the expression of the sport.
Its likely the reason that what we're doing has been more successful than the style portion of the Hot Dogging era. Film creates a medium that allows you to build a piece of your own art, using the sport as your paint brush if you will. So sure, if you're just filming then whatever... but if you're actually working to create a film segment or simply document what you're doing - its almost the way that being a style-focused skier can work.
There's nothing wrong with soul skiing either, but if someone wants to create art and showcase what they do - film is basically the way to do it and share it with the world.
