Now... I'm not going to lie today was a badazz day at Bachy a pow day in April we had a lot of fun today.... it was just me and my friend who is an aight snowboarder that can get around anywhere without a problem.. but he really does suck at filming. I knew I couldn't expect much of an edit of the day, but I told myself we should at least try and I dont know what I saw in him today but I believed he would film good today if I just told him Exactly what to shoot and where to be positioned to get a good shoot so I did, and it still came out bad with late shots, finger on the corner of the lens, too low or too high, follow cam was more of his snowboard instead of me skiing, even the lifestyle shots I asked him to get looked half baked.
At the end of the day it was unforgettable but I really wish my friend would listen and learn for once, this is a common occurrence no matter how hard I try to train him. I feel like when he can finally get it though we will make a good duo he will be getting good shots of me, but also if his snowboarding progress more (Which it will if I just fill him with alcohol and convince him to send it) I'll get some good shots of him.
I know it's not like i'm paying him money or anything to do this but it's a tradeoff because I usually am the one to drive us up to the mtn, and for right now out of both of us i'm the only one who is willing to get fucked up.. in an effort to get a good shot.
What is your experience of a friend or partner who is not so good at filming? what did you do to help them improove?
