Epic powder video from Snowbird

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

self spam but I know very few people are watching it from the TRs.

 

I hope you like, the editting is getting better but not perfect. Video making is tough and I have determined I need to A. get a non POV camera B. have better subject IE edit video not taken from my head or become ballsier on skis

 

 

BTW music is "40 days dream" by "Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros" and its looks alot better full screen and in HD. ;)

Nice!  I liked it.  Looked like some super fun conditions.

I enjoyed the video as well.  I hear you about people not watching videos in the TRs much.

 

The GoPro doesn't do very well in flat light (or at least video doesn't come out as well when final on vimeo... as I'm sure you know).  When the lighting is right and you can see a crisp, clear image of the snow... it is awesome.

 

Anyway I think that was plenty balsy for most folks smile.gif

yeah it actually does worse in straight up sunlight. I still might reeidt this if I can figure out a way to build contrast in post processing.

Nice video... definitely makes me want to get out to Snowbird some time.

 

As for POV videos, I really like it when the subject looks back up at what they just skied down at the end - helps to give it a little perspective.

Nice stuff Josh.  Editing looked pretty good from here.  Contrast is an issue at the beginning, but looked nice the last minute or so.

 

Also liked the song.  That one's being played regularly on WYEP here in the 'burgh.

 

I agree with Jay and like to see a shot back up at the end of the run for perspective.

I tried the look back up thing, but it didnt fit in with the Edit so I scraped it. Jim suggested it as well.

 

As for Bushwacker's no Bushwacker were used during this filming. There is a pair of Cochise(my new favorite big mountain board) that is used in there as well as Katana's and thugs. For me a 180cm 88mm waisted ski is just not enough ski at snowbird even in hard conditions. For most people out west I would NOT recommend the bushwacker but instead the bonafide. Unless of course they are looking for more bump specific ski.

 

but to see the bushwacker's in action here is a great video from Smuggs where they are alot more at home billy goating hardpack lines with patches of powder in between.

 I figured you were on something wider based on the conditions... those Cochise's definitely sound / look good.  What do you think they're better / worse for compared to your Katana's?
