LukasSchroederthis edit was so well done!! I definitely like when the skiing sound effects are enhanced, although sometimes I though they were a bit too loud and noticeable. However that could be because I was focussing on them and watching for them.
Just curious how you went about recording them? did you basically do every rail shot twice?
thank you! yea I definitely need to work on consistent volume of the effects, it was pretty hard to balance that. They overpower some of the softer parts of the song too even when lowering them
for recording I just used a videomic pro but unthreaded from the hotshoe, just holding it handheld as close to the action as possible. There were some tricks that had to be recorded 4+ times (not counting attempts that weren't landed), for multi angles for the video side, then different approaches to the audio, since recording near the beginning of the rail got great takeoff audio but you could barely hear the landing, and vice-versa.
I tried to have Jack re-do the tricks as close as possible so things sounded the most accurate, by far the hardest to capture was the audio from the sw2 to b4 on the S rail, since he lands hard almost halfway down the rail and also spinning out sounds different than just coming off straight, I'm very happy with how that part ended up though, you can even hear the sound of his skis hitting each other in the air as hes finishing the blind 4 rotation
