Keoki (hi there! Missed you guys at ESA this year, sorry I couldnt' go) -
workaround re: I-Tunes... you won't be able to take a song directly out of I-Tunes for use in editing, but if you burn it to CD you can subsequently import it into your video editing program. I just put together a CD of stuff I wouldn't mind listening to in my truck, including the I Tunes song I wanted to use for editing.
Whatever you use, get something with a strong beat. Makes the editing easier. I've done ski videos recently with Talking Heads "What A Day It Was" and with "Ready To Go" by Republica. Generally I look for high-energy stuff for ski videos although I've seen some nice ones done with jazzier music.
I haven't posted the new "Ready To Go" ski video anywhere, but here's an old self-portrait I did to that song in (I think) 2001. I've posted the "What A Day It Was" Ely video here before.http://www.nevadaevent.com/portrait
I'll watch for your finished video - did you see the thread where dchan posted the vid he did from ESA last year? You were the opening shot... there was vid of everybody in our group except Grace... unfortunately she missed the big powder day.
Holy cannoli, snowpro, nice video. Can I be you when I grow up?
