Hey all, I was bored yesterday afternoon so instead of doing maths I put together all the clips that I & my friends filmed over the summer. Its called (predictably) “Summers Riding”, and you can view it in my gallery:
That was a terrific video that I really enjoyed. Great composition and excellent editing. The music went perfectly with it. Some of the videos that I’ve seen on the forums I’ve gotten bored with halfway through watching them. This one, I was left wanting more. Great job.
I’m in another uni video and I didn’t even know it! And i filmed alot of it, on my camera! But hey, i think it’s the best yet to come from our stable, I loved the chilled out vibe, very different to most trials/mountain videos. I guess we’re going to have to get some more stuff together now for the next one, with the imminent arrival of new equipment (might have come already actually) the quality should jump dramatically, expect never before seen footage of one of Britain’s highest mountains.
ya, I also loved your guy’s video! I was wondering, what program do you use to put the vid together? Cause, I’m thinking about making one once I can actually do some tricks. Also, I thought that the trials part in the video was awesome.
Cheers for the kind words! The riding isn’t even close to the best seen on this forum, but then its cool that you all still enjoy it. I wanted to put across the general riding of a group over the summer. Also we don’t film all that much of our stuff (too busy riding!), so our best stuff doesn’t usually make it to film.
Tyler, I use Premiere Pro (not legally obtained), which is very technical but I’m very computer literate so I can get to grips with it fairly readily. You might be better off with something like windows movie maker to start with, I’ve seen excellent videos put together with that, and it does things I wish premiere pro would do!
Yeah we deff. worked on some of the shots, particularly the multiple rider ones, as being compositions rather than just a shot of a trick. Incidentally, the shot of the four of us riding one after another down (1:53) took so many takes, it’s not difficult to ride, just so much harder when trying to sync with other people, and if you look rupert falls off just as he goes out of shot at the end.
