Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
That first Remy Metailler Whistler video surely deserves video of the year. Ill never be able to ride half as good nor am I a big fan of park riding, but that edit still gets me pumped every time I watch it. Because it is not boring. It is simply great riding shoved right in your face. And thats the way it works. It is simple: No one wants to see slow moving images with some slow song in the background and no bike/ambient noise. I think we can all agree on that. See http://theteamrobot.blogspot.de/2014/09/more-bad-music.html The truth is: Less slowmo shots mean you need to shoot more footage overall. So its more work.for the film crew and the rider. Or tell us a good story. Ha.ha. A good mountainbike story. Yeah right. Maybe Joey Schusler? I love how Freeride entertainment proclaimed themselves as "game changers" although no one cares about their movies 2 weeks after release. Clay Porter said in an interview that hes basically the best (mtb)film guy in the world, I wont even comment on that. Its time for some teen with a dslr to think outside the box and show them what a game changer is. I dont have much hope for the big bike movies in the next few years.

Video: Making Awesome Music With Just a Bike
To me, such a concept doesnt get "old" until it has been executed properly. The "making music only with object X" formula has been used in sooo many different ways, Im sure the bike versions (as ususal with "creative" things) were some of the last to the party. The usual problem with these experiments is that the people composing the songs oftentimes have no musical background. Its sometimes seems like more of a video cutting exercise. And its simply a shame seeing a great idea realised below its potential just because the filmmaker didnt collaborate with a musician. Granted, The Simmons video avoided this problem by choosing a catchy simple song that everybody already knows, and while that made it easier for the viewer to understand how the song came together, the musical quality was sacrificed in the process,So this time, from what I can tell, its finally a "real" song thats come out of it, something I would actually listen to for its musical qualities and not just because its based on a fancy concept. Well done. Couldve been a bit stronger on the video side, but I guess you cant have everything. Id love to see the above video used as an intro and then have a full music video that includes all kinds of bike riding and focuses on cycling cultures and the charm of moving on two wheels...

Video: Short Film - Born and Raised
First of all: Life Cycles was not about the pro riders nor was it about their view on or experience with biking. It was about a view of riding that was way closer to what the average everyday rider experiences on his local trails each day. And all those little special moments in the surrounding nature are one of the main reasons why I appreciate every single ride. Life Cycles is the only movie that I can show to non-bikers so that they get an understanding of why I ride. If anyone watched it and even after the "this is not a bike movie" tagline still expected something like the TMZ of MTB, dont blame the movie. Now, for this video here, many people think that just by using the same principles as their inspiration, they will get the same level of quality. The music is so clearly "inspired" by the Life Cycles score, its not even funny (11:09 gets the cake). But while Life Cycles had great structure, pacing and substance, this mainly consists of slowmo shot after random slowmo shot with way too little DOF. There are some really great shots in there and also a interesting story behind it all, but the way that its told is just very chaotic and hard to follow. Style over substance. Next time dont waste your talent trying to recreate somebody else's vision, create your own and make it as good as theirs. Id surely watch it.

Video: Chromag Presents - ''Alchemy'' Teaser 2
Is it only me or is the video compression pretty bad? Compared this to the Vimeo version, same thing there. I do want to see this in a video quality that matches the quality of the riding, so maybe you should take another look at your export settings.
