CFO Flatland Unlimited 5 - Pro Video up now!!!!!!
« on: March 27, 2009, 10:47:22 PM »
Well here it is!  My edit of the CFO FU5 - Pro contest!  Enjoy and let me hear your comments!  Hopefully, despite some of the negativity that has come out lately about the contest, some of this footage can be seen as a positive!  The event is still amazing, and even with some grumblings on how things can or cannot improve, great riding still goes down!  Hope to see more of all of you there next year!

I apologize for it being a tad on the long side, but I didn't find that there was anything I could take from it.  I wanted as much of the riding to be shown as possible.  I have some more footage that I may throw together at another time.  Be sure to check out the final bomb by Justin Miller!  Thanks!

Some people may have filmed chase.  I didn't.  I was busy watching him.  Sometimes it is better to just drop the camera and watch for real ya know!

Thanks, it only my 3rd edit and this one took me awhile to get done, glad you liked it!  I am impressed myself and have probably watched it like 10 different times throughout editing and each time I'm blown away by the riding!

Everything transitioned rather well, the riding was INSANE. Dane is seriously one of my favorite riders and I envy how much bike control he has. I think you should pick some more upbeat tracks, everything had that Hamilton Ontario circa 2000 "I've been listening to a lot of Amon Tobin" vibe to it, which  I like at times, but that was a hype contest that needs some hype songs:)

Stoked on it though and I can't tell you how much I appreciate you putting together a video from the contest!

Thanks for the comments TJ!  Shintaro is riding a Colony Cube frame.  Also, I had a tough time trying to pick some music for the video and may change it at some point.  I used Radiohead for the first song, Sage Francis instrumental for the second and "My Guru" by Anandji; Kalyanji from a surfing soundtrack. 

but thanks for the criticism and hope to improve on my next video edit...

Try to get up in the practice area before the contest too. Ask people if they mind being filmed first of course, but you can get MUCH better footage that way, and you save tape by not having to film everyones contest runs that in many cases people have seen before. Often times if you just ask people will do something OTHER than their contest runs. Pros ride for exposure for their sponsers, so if you're up in their face with a camera offering to give them that, they really have every incentive to pull a few tricks for you:)

you look completly stupid because you donīt wear a helmet. (Quote i got from a mtb forum)
Doin nothing harms.
Acting as them is a crime.
Making plans is a waste of time.
Only riding makes a difference.
