such an ill video, all of that new stuff goes so hard and those OG clips from the L1 breck shoot are genuinely some of the dopest clips i've seen this year... i don't remember having seen them before. that 9 nose tap the flag and the shot after of the sw 5 to coping shuffle are soooo hottt. huge respect to pat for going so hard and putting this out!!
Upstate_WillisThe drone shots really made it hard for me to get through, Pat killed it though.
BKReally? When cutting this I thought the top down drone stuff was really cool. I feel like I rarely see this tried elsewhere in skiing.
I do know Pat keeps it scrappy and gets it where he can. Alot of these spots the only coverage was drone plus lockoff from top.
I appreciate a nice long lens landing angle as much as the next tho so I do see where you are coming from.
HaydenWrongDrone shots were awesome LOVE IT.
top-down drone stuff makes me upset. it removes so much context of the feature, you can't see how big someone goes (though you can see how far), you can barely see the nuance in their movement. skiing is a vertical sport, you always have relief in the landscape - top-down just flattens everything and makes it hard to understand the body movement of the skier. i mean, it looks pretty, i agree, it's not ugly - it just makes it way harder to visualize the skiing in context with the spot. the drone shots where the drone was more level with the jump were better but at the same time the drone op kinda sucked at getting the landing/panning for the rideout on those.
@BK another video that did a few top-down drone shots was cruise control by gpsyfeelin. i'm not saying tradition is law, people should try new things in ski filmmaking... but when the experimental filmmaking interrupts being able to truly watch and understand someone's skiing and tricks, it's missing the point. i would argue save those shots for b-roll or filler stuff maybe?
