Replying to NS comp idea
It seems to me, (and I guess everyone else), that content has moved to the "instabanger" side of things (Full disclaimer, I hate cellphones/instabangers, so I am pretty biased). A few short phone-shot clips, minimal editing. Personally, I like to play around with stuff thats a little longer, and has time for some tighter camerawork, and longer ski sequences. It seems that I see less and less of these, and most of these are coming from established/well known crews. Maybe I'm wrong, I really don't spend that much time scouring the depths of NS to find edits.
However, I figure that we should start a little comp series. Kinda like a mashup of Superunknown and TAFT. Anyone who wants to enter just drops an edit and maybe pays a few bucks. Members vote on edits, or we get a few judges to look things over. Maybe have a few categories (Urban, Park, Big Mountain/Freeride) Winner gets some new gear. Nothing fancy, maybe some skis or boots or shit like that. Maybe we can get companies to donate stuff for prizes, or we can just use the entry fees to cover them. Cheap, efficient, and rad. Seems like a good way to have some fun, and get some quality content out there.
