My New Film About Local Mountain Biking?
Really really enjoyed that. Really liked much of the camera angles and the way it was focussed.
If you want a comment, and this isnt a criticism, maybe instead of some of the pushing and static bike shots, you could have videod the faces of the lads biking, or seen a bit more of them to give the film that bit more of a personal feeling? Only a comment – good choice of music too and great lighting as well.

i no what you mean Simon and Drac about the faces, i will try to add some of that in next time, the flat bit was actually a hill with lots of jumps, it is very hard to convey the steepness of the angles when doing close-up shots :-). might do a re-edit of it with new footage in the next few weeks 😉Posted 8 years ago
haha, well everyone has there own style. its more using a DSLR to film it with as it very versitile at a reasonably good price. i have used my tripod as a sort of boom cam device as it enables me to get wider and more interesting shots while also being able to keep quite close to the rider. it also give a smoother feel to the shot.Posted 8 years ago
This is a short film that i shot about 2 weeks ago, it is one that i have thought about a bit more than some of my other films, i have also used a better camera and i think the results of this speak for themselves, there will be a higher resolution version (HD) going on to vimeo in the next few days. See what you think and feel free to post comments etc. thanksPosted 8 years ago
Nice one Dom,A really great vid,cant really offer any advice,a bit less pushing maybee!
I would be I interested to know what software you are using, and It must require some serious computing power to edit it!.
I have a HDef camera (AVCHD format)and really need a better pc for editing,any advice appreciated.Posted 8 years agoGNARGNARMember
I liked that. Nicely shot and a good atmosphere.
Constructive criticism – You could shave a minute off it and not loose anything, remember if shot's not impressive slowing it down or showing multiple angles is just going to emphasis this (ie the slo mo skid) . The vignetting is slightly ott and the mountain board seemed incongruous and out of place. I think the end title "this is what mountain biking is about" seems a tiny bit pompous and not really accurate either seeing as you've got the mountain board guy in there too. Place and date would have been sufficient and in keeping with the subtle style.Posted 8 years agojimmySubscriber
thats great. regardless of any criticism (as a non-film maker I have non!) I agree with Tang. Reminds me of long hot summers bumming about in the woods riding trails over and over, sitting and chin-wagging, ride some more and head home into the sunset. Has that feel about it. Great stuff. You should do a 'Locals Seasons'…Posted 8 years ago
