Level 1 has worked its way up to one of the legitimate ski movie companies, but i would be lying if i did not say i was somewhat dissappointed with the movie. There is incredible skiing in it from rainville, vanular, wiley miller, and others, but honestly the quality of picture, lighting, camera angles, seemed very amateur. While all ski companies have stepped i up to hd this year, and from the looks of their trailer Turbo has excellent camera motion, lighting, etc, much of realtime i felt i was watching edits on newschoolers (with the exception of the level of skiing, i do not want to take anything away from the riders, i just feel the filmmakers could have done a better job.) I also think that the msp'esque rider interviews and deep thoughts throughout the movie are dumb, but thats more of a personal preference. In all, I was not very pumped on this movie especially compared to the relatively much higher quality productions of the year such as yeah dude, believe, and even get lucky and idea. Turbo looks badass, but i do not think Level 1 stepped up their game for realtime.
I liked the format of the movie how it goes through the season as it happens, maybe not original but a relief from the stock forms
I won it, so i guess it was a good deal for me
The picture quality of this movie is mediocre. If not viewed on the right screen it can look super pixely and the titles are clearly not hd, which is dissappointing because you really notice them for being that and its not that much money for motion 2
Definitely has some really good skiing, the talent pool these guys draw from is rolling super deep
best movie of the year. i loved the music. unbelievable urban. fun vibe. get it!
the look and feel of it was amazing. the disc was so round and smooth and even had a whole in the middle.
buy it. you wont be disappointed. support L1!
i've watched it about ten times with no problems at all
best movie of 07/08 for sure. maybe some dont like Level 1's "techno" music. personally i dont mind at all and many songs in the movie werent techno at all. as for the skiing, an amazing compilation of every aspect of skiing. urban, powder, park, racing. jk, no racing. i also liked how L1 made such a great movie without a lot of big names. the biggest name was probably Vanular. plus there were the hidden clips every time the "REALTIME" logo popped up on the screen
Realtime has consistently amazing editing throughout its one-hour run time. Level 1 wins the prize for best edit hands down. Shots are synced flawlessly with music, and their many time lapses provide a good buffer in between ski segments. As in all Level 1 movies, Colby West throws down; his segment is amazing, and includes some urban rails this year. There is also a nice skier-snowboarder camaraderie segment where two crews work together and share the perfect powder sesh. If only the world were more like us...
It's a good movie for a good price. Nothing outstanding. It definately has it's parts where it's sick and where it's ok.
Again, the editing and time lapses were good and the skiing was solid in parts but lacked in others. The big mountain and pow shots were not the best but some of the park and urban shots were really good.
It's a decent deal for the amount of money it is and the quality of the product.
I thought that the new Level 1 movie was good but I don't think that it was anything excellent. It had it's ups and downs and I expected that. The time lapses were pretty good overall.
I really liked the editing in the movie. The skiing was good at some points but it could've been better. I thought that Hornbeck killed it in the movie and it seemed like a lot of am's killed it. Ahmet Dadali also killed the rails and urbans. Vanular's part was short but sweet. I also enjoyed Mike Clarke's part as well.
