 Right! Ian's scrub at the beginning blows my mind!
  • + 4
 That was absolutely phenomenal
  • + 6
 Do they even need a demo reel?
  • + 3
 I wonder who's having more fun. The biker, or the camera guy?
  • + 23
 not a traditional demo reel, but the film quality was awesome, and anything anthill makes rocks!

  • + 2
 @0:10,

You see that light brown thing that moves? Right above the bottom right corner, It jumps right and moves..jesus I am starting to feel pretty crazy too. Do it frame by frame.
  • + 4
 either way, why did you notice that in a film with so much other detail??
  • + 2
 Damn, couldnt find any furry animals
  • + 11
 are you by chance doing mushrooms? that'd explain a lot.

 jamesbush's profile pic is fuckin awesome, figured I'd mention that
  • + 1
 Does Anthill really need a demo reel to let people know they're sick? i thought people would have figured that out by now!
  • + 2
 a little visual evidence never hurtsSmile
  • + 3
 thanks Thies.....
  • + 1
 agreed^^ f*ckin awesome
  • + 2
 Haha and yes I know you guys love me and would never mean actual harm while I act crazy....

 i dont know about them, but i dont
  • + 3
 Through all of this, I caught myself checking the vid 3 times, laughing at the comments, having to go to the washroom and now find that the final outcome is still the same as with most other vids... I wanna go ride but there is like 2 feet of snow on EVERYTHING outside... awesome edit Anthill!, and great conversation lads!Beer

 It's not a traditional demo reel because it wasn't sub-par. All the shots felt like they fit together, instead of feeling like they're just random bits and pieces.
  • + 14
 Only one thing I didn't like about this vid... Wish it was longer..
  • + 10
 towards the beginning, was that Captain Jack Sparrow fly fishing in the middle of the ocean?
  • + 2
 Ayyyyyyyyyy!

 Anthill are a cut above the rest when it comes to cinematography.
  • - 3
 the rest meaning larock and silvia? idk bud
  • + 2
 Maybe not in terms of vision or the technical side of things. But Anthill is shooting things in the four corners of the world in ways that the "rest" probably can only dream of at this point and time. Not saying Silvia wouldn't shoot the hell out of those places, but they probably don't have it in the budget right now.

 Anthill is a cut above the rest in vision, location, budget, and the technical side of things.

 The sports and the Opera. Truly amazing. Thank you anthill! Salute
  • + 5
 What films were the other sports clips from? The rock climbing looked mint, but I only saw mountain bike films on their website.
  • + 1
 They do some filming for alterna snowboard films
  • + 1
 The rock climbing is in Squamish, where they're from (a huge destination for climbing). The climber was Jamie Finlayson on The Silent Menace in the Grand Wall boulders - crazy gap jump to start. Don't know that it will be its own film - maybe commercial or just demo filming.

 Great work guys! This is a quality showreel that really shows the maturity of these film makers. Notice the use of a more behind-the-scenes look that really showcases the professional work they put into each shoot and not just a series of random clips strung together with music.
  • + 7
 Wow....
  • + 1
 Absolutely stunning. The ski racing shots brought in my previous obsession as well. Those guys get so creative with their camera angles, it's amazing. And that scrub - I think if most of us here tried that we would simply wash out sideways into the trees. Commitment!
  • + 3
 That was so sick!! But antill why put shots from 2010 in your 2012 demo reel?
  • + 6
 Thanks everyone for all the positive comments. We haven't updated our demo reel in a few years so it's really just a collection looking back at some of our favorite shots.
  • + 1
 I was gunna say there is definitly clips from follow me in there, non the less sick video for sure, reminded me of one of those super awesome videos you catch yourself watching for like half an hour on the big screen tvs at best buy or futureshop
  • + 1
 Personally, I don't usually like slow-motion filming and Very Dramatic Music... but this video made my weekend nevertheless Drool
  • + 1
 I reckon Anthill should release a feature length behind the scenes, I love the little snippets of seeing those guys do their magic with cameras and equipment.
  • + 4
 Why did it have to end
  • + 3
 Gona have to go wipe my trousers down after watching that.
  • + 2
