Critique my new video please……Or just watch it? (Chamonix and Meribel)
Nicely shot, but with the music and build up I was expecting some super gnar downhill shredding, and ummmm, was left a little disappointed.
(no offence to your riding skillz, I’m most people on here could do no better, they were fine but the xc just didn’t suit the music).
Change the music and it would be great.Posted 4 years agostilltortoiseSubscriber
Despite the fact the riding wasn’t exciting, the fast and varied edit kept me watching, so credit due there. Did I detect some speeded-up footage?? 😉
As a keepsake of your hols it’s a good job, but if there was room for improvement I’d say it needed some narrative or some other soundtrack other than just music. There’s a microphone on your camera for a reason.
Better than many many efforts I see thoughPosted 4 years ago06awjuddMember
What music would you suggest to the non-gnar xc video then?
Not heavy dubstep.
Something more mellow. If were making an XC edit right now, I’d probably use Capital Cities – Safe and Sound, or maybe some Passion Pit.
Don’t get me wrong, I think the riding and the footage is great, just not well-matched with the music, it’s subjective though, so you can disregard
everyone’smy opinion entirely if you want.
Good luck with your next edit!Posted 4 years agostarfanglednutterMember
I see you’ve cut the video to suit the music, which is done pretty well. Looks like an awesome trip and some nice shots in there. Agree with previous comments about the music (and I’m an electronic music fan) – it’s just a bit too hyper. Also agree with the comment about getting some commentary in there, or a snippet of someone talking.
In terms of music, something like Global Communications might work well – as in this WideOpen video:Posted 4 years ago
Nice edit! I like that you’ve cut the video to the music (and done well) and used not so fast video with the song breakdown. A nice mix of footage too. 😉
I’m of the same opinion about the music, it’s the sort of music for fast/dh type stuff, saying that I used Dubstep in my recent video. 😳
For tips and ideas, I would watch other peoples video’s, that’s how I did it.Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Very pleasant, good to watch some normal riding and the off the bike shots work so much better than go pro head/chest stuff..
@pezza – just search around on the internet plenty on here (dozens of threads), there is a book of trails for Chamonix called Chamonix Bike Book. The Portes du Soleil (Morzine/Les Gets/Chatel/..) is a frequently ridden path for UK bikers on first Alps trips, lots of marked trails and other stuff to discover.Posted 4 years ago
