Video of the Month - May 2012

Video of the Month is an article showcasing the best Videos of the Day from the month before. We take the most viewed videos from the previous month, and pick our favorites out of the top 10.

One of the most interesting things I noticed in this months top videos is that more and more companies are using online videos to promote their athletes and products. Or at least they're doing a much better job of it than they used to. This month no less than 4 of the top 8 videos were produced and promoted by various bike companies, and 3 of the remaining 4 were sponsored videos. It's not that there is anything bad about that, quite the opposite actually, I'm stoked that this much great content is being produced and showcased on Pinkbike. It means that more and more film makers are being hired and getting paid to do what they're good at, and that can never be a bad thing, it helps support the creation of videos, and gives us an almost endless amount of quality video to watch. Huge props to Rupert Walker in the number 8 spot for creating a great video with Dustin Greenall that didn't have any sponsor logos at all in it aside from his own. Purely self promotional!

 Everytime I watch a Larock vid I think it cant be beaten, and then he goes and makes another one thats even better. Everyone of his edits is totally killer! Great job man!

 Yep larock is making videos that are going up against company's like whistler and devinci and beating them. Although the other two where pretty damn good.

 I think we underestimate how hard it is to make a 4 minute video, and then to get it onto the home page of pink bike, and then to be nominated for video of the month. I mean honestly guys, bravo.
