KCoCM@weatcoast bro!!! where’s the old weast!!! we talked about this!!! u just made a thread about amateur content!!!
Also kinda off topic but I’ll throw this in anyway. I only like to criticize stuff when the editing is shitty or it’s presented in a weird way. Like it’s ok to be not as good as others in skiing and it’s awesome that you’re making videos with your friends, but at least have good filming/editing/song choices or at least try to be original with it.
I wish people would shit on my stuff more because criticism is super valuable. Like I would love it if people went on my profile and said yo that fisheye shot at 1:33 was filmed kinda wack. Cause then it helps me get better at filming. Cause I was watching my stuff the other day and I realized like damn I filmed some of these fisheye shots kinda wack.
it’s just annoying when people don’t even try to be original. Not gonna mention names but I just saw a longer edit someone made on the homepage and I clicked on it out of curiosity and the first song was like something I’ve heard a thousand times. I clicked right off cause I’ve seen this kids gram before and its just all ego-boost captions with songs I’ve heard a million times and techy clips that don’t even count cause he fell off early or something. And the thumbnail art they used was something copied from millbastards and other films I’ve seen where they cut out magazine letters and use it as their title art. Not to mention their “teaser” for this edit stole a song directly from zootspace lol like come on. Worst part is this kid isn’t someone who’s new to skiing he actually has a decent bag of tricks. He’s also 16 so I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, I’ve done sus shit and still do at times but sometimes I wish someone woulda had the balls to call me out for my bullshit
just super annoying when you can make a video original-ish and cool just by good editing and using a unique song instead of something that’s used in every Instagram edit or stealing something from the latest big street vid lol. And even if it’s a “basic” song at least do your best research to make sure it wasn’t used in an edit before. This is why I’m considering deleting one of my edits off my page cause it’s a well known Mac Miller song and it vibes with the edit but I guarantee someone’s used it before and I don’t wanna be that guy.
tldr it’s ok to be not as good as others but there’s no excuse for un-originality if you put the effort into watching other edits and making your own.
