Really cool--thanks for the link

Yeah, that is a super cool vid. I saw it on The Ski Channel and there was a link to a similar video from a couple of months ago. It was Whistler in a snow globe.

 

Here's the link: http://www.theskichannel.com/news/skinews/20110103/WATCH-Whistler-Blackcomb-birds-eye-view

am I missing something here?  Isn't this just a pretty average video with frames taken out and a tilt-shift effect applied to make everything look miniature?  A really simple way to do it is to just blur the top and bottom of the image and sharpen the middle.  It's a cool effect, but I wouldn't say it really takes any extra talent to do.

Where do we get to see your videos?

Perhaps I came off wrong.   The video is put together nicely and is kinda cool.  However, I'm not amazed by it, nor do I see the abundance of "talent" just because they applied a simple tilt-shift effect.

 

Plus, why is it that if I critic something, someone always needs to say something like "show me that you can do better".  This is such a stupid argument....I'm not a movie director but I can still decide whether a movie is good or not.  I'm not a professional chef but I can decide whether a certain dish is tasty or not.  I can't sing but I can judge who can.

 

I'm not going to deny that whoever put this video together can do a better job of shooting and editing videos than me.  However, I'm not impressed by the talent, because there are tons of people out there that can make a video of this quality or better. 

 

I can understand how someone who has never seen the tilt-shift effect before can be WOW'd by it.  The first time I saw the effect, I thought it was really cool too.  But take away the effect (applied by a push of a button in Adobe after effects), and you have a fairly average video.  There's a difference between a good result and the talent that goes into creating that result.  In-and-Out burger is very tasty, but I wouldn't say the burger flippers working there are talented.

the technical skill behind it may not have been all that special, but the combination the photos  and level of skiing and the whole package was cool.

I disagree; the talent of the musicians that recorded the song for the sound track is awsome.  Too bad someone had to wreck it.

All I know is that was some sick skiing...icon14.gif

 

Thanks for sharing.

Maybe they can, but I haven't seen one just like it. Also, tilt-shift or not, do you think it was easy to gather all of the footage used. It looks to me like a lot of work went into it. Without the effects, it would probably still come off pretty cool. Beats the hell out of the endless piles of POV videos we are getting these days.

Yeah, that was kind of painful.

I will second the great find.  I will second the sick skiing.  Some people need to sit back, stay the hell off the keyboard, and find one last powder day to improve their mood before mud season!

post #17 of 17

I will agree the skiing is sick.  I can respect those who think this video is cool.  No need to get all riled up because I shared my opinions regarding what went into the creation of the video.  Sorry for stirring the pot.  I do wish for another powder day this season.....but the chance is next to nil on that one.
