Movies For Your Monday
@MMOF: I'm not sure how familiar you are with Movies For Your Monday but typically the last five or so videos in the article have absolutely nothing to do with mountain biking. They're just films that I enjoy from different genres and hope other people find entertaining or interesting.

So cool to see a brand letting a filmmaker create something this unique and awesome! Great work Max, riders, and We Are One!

Movies For Your Monday
@jjwillTOmaui: As a filmmaker, I like using slow motion to accentuate certain moments and show the viewer things that they couldn't see with their naked eye. I think of it as punctuation in a video. It's there to change up the rhythm of the edit and to highlight key bits of action. Sometimes we don't get enough footage to fill out a full video and there are a few more slow mo shots in there than I'd like, simply to fill time. But generally, I use slow mo because I think mountain biking is visually stunning and I like to appreciate the movement of the athlete and to see how beautiful the scenery is. And you're right, when I'm getting paid for a video it's because it's an advertisement. I want the viewer to know who's sponsoring the edit so that I can keep making bike videos for a living. At the end of the day, I think there's a place for both ''raw'' videos with no artsy shots (like many BMX videos) and heavily stylized ''cinematic'' films with tons of slow mo. It's up to filmmakers and viewers to decide what's in. You vote with your views and comments.

@LittleDominic: You definitely couldn't pull it off with my cable cam setup! If you watch the behind the scenes on The Collective's movie Seasons they show that they actually used steel cable and a truck to tension one of their lines for a shot and that sucker must have been 500 feet. Pretty wild!

@andreDHliv haha that's awesome! I tried to make a dolly that slid on a ladder and it was just awful. DIY gear isn't always ideal...

That's awesome man! Definitely worth revisiting the zone to get the shot exactly how you imagined. Such a banger!

Must Watch: Jordie Lunn - Rough AF 2 - Video
You just know that if the builds look gnarly on camera then they're filthy in person! The Lunnaissance is real.

Hey @sarahlh, the trolley was welded by my buddy out of aluminum. Honestly, I think you could make one that would work just as well out of stuff you could find in any hardware store. The wheels and rope are much more important than the frame as far as shooting goes. You just need something that can hold the camera. Hope that helps!
