Thread: Snow Pirate day promo- critque appreciated

  1. #1

    Default Snow Pirate day promo- critique appreciated


    I have used these forums for a while, enjoyed watching everyone's vids and got a lot of handy tips.

    I thought i'd post up something myself for once. The clip is my first attempt at a bit of a promo for an upcoming snowboard/ski event that i am running (its a non profit for fun thing so there is no funding). I have footage of really good riders with all the moves but the idea is to get all levels of rider involved and make it look fun.

    I had three sets of footage given to me to add to my own so the footage was shot on a Canon 600D, Canon 7D and two GOPROS, conveniently the gopro footage was all shot on different settings ...argggh. so the first problem was that I had to use footage that I didn't shoot and was often to far from the subject and the second was getting all the different files types to work....which turned out to be a nightmare. But anyway heres what I came up with (Watch it in HD if you can).


    Feel free to leave comments or likes on the vimeo page as well.

    You made it look fun, so there's half the job done. I think it was a little long just for a promo but I'm not a snow boarder.

    yeh I agree, it is definitely a bit too long, It would be better at about 2mins max I think, maybe even shorter. One of the problems I always have with these sorts of videos, where I know everyone riding, is cutting out things. I really need someone sitting with me for the final cut saying 'cut it'...'out'...'boring' etc hahah

    I'll probably make another one so I'll try and make sure its brief next time.

    It made me want to go pirate snowboarding. Especially liked the shot at 1:37. That was awesome.
