Now go in, watch the clips, share them around the net and on Monday we will judge the top viewed ones with the boys from Life Cycles and pick the top 3 to pick up some stellar prizing from Scott Bikes and Shimano.

And if you haven't already, Pre-Order your copy today!The Official Trailer:

 Great contest if we speak for the re-cuts there but i really want some information what is happening we wait for the results the Monday (20.09.2010) now is 10 days after that and we have no information for this delay.I'm curious when the results will be ready Smile (pretty sure I'm not the only one)

 If you're going on views, won't the ones that have been up the longest have a huge advantage?
  • + 6
 Or for that matter, the ones the immature little Pinkbikers decide are the best.
  • + 1
 it is true the ones that have been up longer will have an advantage i think they should review the topp 100 at least Razz 500 is way to many to look through haha
  • + 1
 ya, if they know anything about what they're doing they won't judge by views and faves and bullsh*t like that, they better be watching all of them or at least all of them over 100/200 views or something like that and decide on what is ACTUALLY the best
  • + 1
 boostmaster, that is what is going to happen
  • + 1
 ok sweet!
  • + 1
 Right on. That's the way to do it.
  • + 1
 hopefully they'll also see that some videos may have a ton of views but not that many favs in comparison.. hopefully my vid with only 1000 views will be considered, i lost my other 1000 since i had to make to cuts Frown

 What a great contest! Major props to Pinkbike and the folks behind Life Cycles for coming up with this!

I'm hoping the judges consider all criteria, not just 'max number of views' to determine a winner...

...as in, 2 minutes or less, does it get you stoked for the movie? Does the recut trailer express a narrative? Is the pacing of the edit on point or haphazard?

If the filmmakers have a say, I'm guessing they'll find the edit that they feel reps their film the best, and award 'winnership' accordingly.

Props to all who took part - some really sick edits out there!

Cheers from Nebraska!

 I absolute agree with you
  • + 2
 yeah for sure, some videos have a ton of views but very little favs in comparison, hopefully my vid will be up there with 1000 views.... but i'd be much happier if i had all the other views and favs from my rough cut combined too
  • + 2
 Can't wait to see the results! Maybe the decision is that tough! My guess is the boys at stance got super busy in Vegas for the premier or pulled a "Hangover" and lost Derek on a rooftop somewhere. Just my guess Razz
  • + 3
 yeah the first videos will have a major advantages to the ones that were just made, they should go off creativity not just views

 they should just review all of them, going off views is absurd
  • + 1
 Agreed. That would take a damn long time though.
  • + 1
 I went by the overall story.. Song choice, how the story was told, and editing capability..

This is why my first favorite is :

Tigeragon

others that I liked were:


dirtmerchant--Mat dennison

MMMMMM - Adam yunker

Madpladfilms

pkabat -- In search of epicness.


I have watched every single submission and these are by far my most favorite ones because of the total package..

Music choice is huge, and I have stopped watching many because the music choice was terrible.

I hope one of these above wins....

disclaimer.. I dont know any of these people above, nor did I submit any video.

Just an avid fan of great videos..

hollaa

 hold the presses. Let me add a few more of my favs.. Xeispen--- peisen Xue Downhill domination- Kickstarts Scottbow25 Saagar91 - prince of persia all these are great. I still like Tigeragon..
  • + 1
 skiserge what do you think of the music in mine?
  • + 1
 Hey Benko. I remember seeing that video> Maybe the rough draft one.. But I just looked at the final edit one and actually think the music went well with the edit.. Just like the first comment in your final edit video.

Nice job. Good luck in the contest

 awesome thanks
  • + 1
 Yeah GREAT answer !!! I really expect more attention form the Life Cycles team. I think that this delay is really unprofessional. More or less we all put some time and hard work in those re-cuts and we deserve to know what will happen next.
  • + 4
 I think they are just finishing off the DVD to go to production on the timeline they set forth, so that is where the delay is. Cut them a break. They'll have the results. It's 500 videos to go through also.
  • + 1
 I think everyone would just appreciate a simple comment on here from those who put the contest in place... Takes 5 seconds
  • + 1
 Maybe is 500 re-cuts and they are pretty busy BUT they had a contest and they must run it and after that if they are not able to do that they HAVE TO INFORM US WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING. And my excuses but 500 re-cuts i viewed all for 2 days without think to do that its few hours work and no matter how big problems they got is easy to comment here and will only take a minute or two. We have respect for those people and is does not fell right to watch every day and dig about some little info. Just forgot that i was in the contest because of these delay.

Will be posted live soon. Took a while to go through every video. But the top 3 are pretty amazing!
  • + 1

  • + 3
 Come on.... Rampage is over ....
Now you can watch videos !

  • + 1
 I don't think the video's with the most views should only be considered as nominees. Some people on pink have a BAJILLION friends, unfair advantage to us that only have 4 friends! lol
  • + 2
 Come on, we want some kind of notice of what is going on! I hate when they refuses to answer there mail, it gives a very unserious impression when people behave like this.
  • + 1
 Waiting is the hardest part, isn't it Smile .

I'm anxious to hear the results, too.

The Pinkbike / Life Cycles folks are the shit.

Let's just give 'em the benefit of the doubt and assume they're busy being excessively rad!

 Really great contest! Loved to have the opportunity to work with my favourite things, quality video material, setting music to picture, the one and only extreme sport and some motion graphic. Thanks for the opportunity!!
  • + 2
 Yeah, in this contest are many great recuts. Thanks for this contest, it is amazing how many peoples have a talent. I can't wait on winning video too!
  • + 1
 haha yeah that really made me have to work a lot harder since it's the first edit i've ever made
  • + 2
 They're smart guys... they aren't going to just pick a random edit because it has lots of views. There will be good reason behind whatever gets chosen. Seconding your post.
  • + 1
 Such a great contest. Had an blast creating ours. Makes you really think out of the box and get creative when you have a limited and set amount of footage to work with!
  • + 1
 Yes, totally agree. This was an awesome contest. I was so stoked when I first heard about it that I couldn't concentrate at all until I could get home and start working on it! Also blown away with all the really creative and awesome recuts that people have come up with.
  • + 2
 Yeah really awesome contest and now we want to see the awesome results!! Smile

 "...on Monday we will judge...."

 Definitely some amazing recuts out there. Can't wait to see who wins.
  • + 4
 May The Best recut Win tup
  • + 2
 Yeah this recut contest is showing who has the coolest and most creative content.

Its was hard (for me anyways) to make a video pop out at someone who has seen the same footage over 500 times. If you think along those terms you really have to put your video out there,

make it stand out...
  • + 1
 USTEMUF'S WILL WIN
  • + 2
 It's harder for those who don't have 500+ friends or whatever, but then again, that's also part of the game. There's no point in making an amazing edit if you don't do the 'advertising' half of things.

I liked mine lol but there are tons of editing styles out there and hopefully the best pick is the right one that pertains to the majority!

What tigeragon said.
