This one means a lot to me!

Spending hours and hours alone waiting to see a bear, hiking in the woods laughing with your friends packed up with gear, or waiting for the right moment when the river valley begins to shine and show her beauty. I wanted each shot to be difficult and have a story behind them. I wanted to make something beautiful to share with the world. I hope you enjoy.

 Because it is 7 minutes long with about one minute of actual riding?

 Excellent music selection. I heard this song first when my wife was watching the series Big Little Lies on HBO, it was the theme. Now it is in my regular rotation particularly on the dark rural drives home from night rides and grilling with friends.

 It's easy to forget what an amazing place we live. You really captured the beauty of the island, and all the hard work that is put into making it much a great place to ride. So much dedication to jump and trail building, and such a great community of people. This film reminded me to slow down and appreciate the goodness of the place we make our home.

 Thank you Calvin for not cutting this down to make sure the folks who lost their ability to concentrate for more than 30 seconds don’t complain.

 Yes. As with the guy behind life cycles, Calvin Huth might be too talented to stay in mtb for long. Good for him.

 This was one of the most immersive videos I have seen. I realised I wasn´t focused on the riding all that much, just went with the flow of the whole thing. Sublime experience, left me feeling great

 Noticed the "Must Watch."
Skimmed rider list and made a mental note to come back to this later when I had more time.
2 days go by...
Scrolled by again, but noticed @CalvinHuth in the sub-text.
Dropped everything and watched twice.
What a gift. Calvin's work is on a different level. I'm still watching his ABSTRACT 2 from 2019.

 Holy! I cant even comprehend the hours it must have taken to set up a cable camera that many times! The shots are so good it really makes you feel like you're flowing through the jumps/trail with them. Some of the best I've ever seen. Side note I just received a super widescreen monitor and this was the perfect things to convince me it was a good purchase haha. Thanks boys!

 mint - the bit 1/2 way in when the music picks up and mark wallace is pinning it is pure genius!

 The cable cam shots gave reminded me a bit of segments of the collective, or maybe roam. Which is a very good thing.

 Great video and loved how the music led the thing. Also props to using (almost) the entire song; ambitious song, ambitious edit

I did chuckle at the Big Little Lies tune choice. Smile

 THIS WAS INCREDIBLE. I loved all of it. For being sort of random in the type of shots, it all flowed together perfectly. Job well done. This is art.
