Full Video Highlights: Black Sage FEST 2018

Aug 28, 2018
by Fest Series  

bigquotesThanks to Kyle Jameson for coming together with me on this idea of bringing fest to Oregon. I’d say it’s going well and has some potential for more madness in the future! Also huge thanks to Clay Porter & Metis Creative for slaying this video. Couldn’t do it without 10 Barrel Brewing, Oregon Dirt Park, Red Bull, Host Campers, & Oregrown.Carson Storch

Sunset trains were becoming common place by the end of the night.

 Everyone's an effing critic. Wicked video, different take vs normal fest vids but you gotta switch it up to keep it fresh. MOAR Clay Porter pls!

 Hmm interesting reactions. I mean I love me a good thrasher metal ripping fest recap vid, but I thought this was equally awesome even though it was different. Those jumps are almost as big as the balls of the people sending them, and the tricks were sick. WTF even was that at 4:53..no foot can to indian air?! Insane. Kudos to Carson and Kyle for putting on another unreal event.

 dang, that moto-whip was less of a whip and more of a 240 and then reverse.

 In the back of my mind I was like "That CGI is terribly done, real motorbikes don't move like that".

 @Pedro404: amen. I was like “nah.... oh wait... hang on... ???? “

 I really liked the edit and the music! A nice change from the usual Fest edits.

One questions, where was Andreu Lacondeguy?

 Epic!!! And I was asking the same question to myself...

 You can tell it's a Clay Porter edit because the riders rarely take off and land in the same clip. Not as bad as others I've seen from him (coughDeathGripcough) but it still irritates me. I know I sound pedantic and I can just watch other videos, but y'know, ripping on people who are better at something than you is what the internet is for.

That's why I love Alex Rankin videos. He documents something that happened because it was rad, instead of trying to make it look all artsy fartsy and cutting out half the clip becasue the slo-mo takes up too much time.

 Yeah its odd to me how a number of people jump on it like its the greatest edit ever and poetic simply because of the music with a silly nonsense voiceover and most of the clips being slow-mo. It looked like he randomly dropped clips wherever and not once was an entire trick shown or more than a fraction of the jump line. The massive front flip shot, one of the banger tricks of the session, the rider was halfway cut off with the clip ending before he was close to landing. It wasn't the worst edit ever but damn, what a missed opportunity.

 needs more metal, bit mellow for a fest video
  • 14 3
 Weird vibes for sure. But it provided me the headspace to reflect on how truly massive and mental these jumps and tricks really are. I kept waiting for the last minute or two to switch back to raging metal distortion though!

 Actually I was like, finally a Fest video without that annoying music. ha!

(downvote suit on)

 @Billjohn6: Positive spin. Just a pinch of metal or chaos though?
  • 30 1
 I may be out of the norm, but I thought the cinematic tune was pretty on point for this high-flying rad af ballet in the air.
  • 18 3
 The music is whatever, but I can't stand random shots of a rider in slow motion in the middle of the trick. Everyone who edits a MTB video should watch a skate or BMX video first and take notes. You won't see a cut to the middle of a guy going down a staircase without showing the takeoff or the landing. If you want to mix it up with elevator music that's cool, but it's a video about people doing jumps, at least show them taking off and landing.

 @GorgeousBeauGaston: Yeah I'm kind of with you on that... I kept thinking it was only going to be like that for the intro but it just kept going.

 @GorgeousBeauGaston: exactly! Fest is aboot huge jumps!
Apparently with no take offs or no landings.....

 @dave1234: Agree, piano worked well with the slo' mo'. Awesome as usual, more FEST through the year please!!

 Best riding in the world stands out even more against that soundtrack, rather than the typical banging beats. Best edit I've ever seen, by a long shot...Storch for President. Jamieson for Secretary of Awesomeness. Porter....Ghandi?
  • 11 6
 That gave me the chills ! Poetry in Motion. Best Contest Video ever. Im so pumped, i need to Trash something in my Livingroom

 wait, didn't this happen in may? and its just hitting the front page now? i don't mean to be critical but that seems odd

 Well. That was nothing short of beautiful. I like the normal thrash-metal Fest videos, but this one with all the slo-mo really lets you appreciate the shapes that these guys are throwing. Absolutely superb edit from Clay.

 A true master class on how to stretch out one minute of content into a seven minute snooze fest.

 a friend who doesn't ride walked into my place as i was watching and wanted to know....." why is this edit sofa king pretentious?...".....

 @stacykohut: Because they're not out there to push their limits and have fun, they're like out there to be inspirational superheroes that fly around more majestically than any human ever has. This isn't just riding a bike, this is like painting a Picasso! Its art in motion!

Oh shit, I dropped my fake reading glasses into my latte. I hope I didn't get any foam on my man bun....
