Late night thread but I’ve been steadily re-watching every Simon knight and Mike carmazzi video available. After getting a little deeper into filming, especially skate inspired filming (vx1000/general fisheye shots) I’ve come to the general conclusion that these guys have it down the best I’ve seen. They both skate fluently and constantly, and their ski filming reflects it. They avoid buttshots (shots of the back of the rider that a fisheye will draw more attention to) the best in the game. The way they pick their lines, move the cam to keep the skier in frame / the front of their body towards the cam is unmatched. I know a massive amount of ski influence/ski filming influence is taken from skateboarding, and these guys pick routes as filmers incredibly. When you watch one of their projects it’s not just another century xtreme clip, it’s absolutely skate inspired and imo it looks incredible. If you ain’t seen their shit, do urself a favor and type that jawn in on the Tube.
ps I don’t skate whatsoever but hold a massive appreciation where these film techniques come from.
