 Didn't want it to end. Got to be one of the best shot and best ridden video this year.
  • + 5
 Best piece of Videography i've seen all year.

I wouldn't be surprised to see these guys shooting a bigger movie like Follow Me or something.

Video of the year! Smile

 dsrider, the over and under exposures were on purpose, Facepalm


Do you know anything about filming? At all?
  • + 9
 Yeah do you? Huh?

  punk
  • + 10
 nice critique dsrider LOL, I'm all about taking crits in order to improve but that was just sad... I admit one choppy pan and one sloppy zoom so you are right, but the exposures are good imo. thanks for the crit anyways even if it was pretty rude and immature...
  • + 7
 i love it, this video actually got me stoked.
  • + 3
 ya just work on your pan a bit , but over all an amazing video
  • - 2
 Dsrider is totally right, benton and garret killed it. But some of the shots in this made me shake my head...It looks good the the average eye but theres alott of room for improvement, especially when your using one of the nicest cameras available to public.
  • + 7
 ah evergreen-p dont worry about it, kids are gonna hate all the time! really tight video brotha!
  • + 2
 @ SteezeYesPlz
Sorry if your being sarcastic, but name some spots for improvement, why and if you think you could do better?

 Did I say I could do better? no.
I think all the colours could have been better, the panning in a few shots, the focus seems off in a few aswell. Just giving critique
  • + 0
 while i do feel it was an amazing video i do see what steezyesplz means by the pans. some weren't very smooth, but thats the only critique i can offer for the video

flag dsrider (Jun 30, 2010 at 2:19) (Below Threshold)
 Thats interesting that my comment was deleted. I stand by what I said and I guess I will have to restate it so maybe you can open your minds a little bit. This is in NO WAY one of "the best pieces of video all year". Its decent. But come ON the guy has a 5D for christ sake!!!! And to Shred NZ what do you mean the over and under exposures were on purpose?? Why would you do that to your video.... do YOU know anything about video?

Now im going to give some examples.

Second shot is out of focuss, why?? It looks sloppy.
Shady Pan at 45 seconds
Half of bentos body is out of frame at 55 seconds
1:11 is over exposed and there isnt any texture in the second feature
Shady pan again at 1:18
At 1:22 there is nothing in focus in your foreground when you are obviously going for the focus on a shrub then the rider type of thing.
Shady zoom at 1:33
1:52....
2:16....
2:41 the riders are out of focus
3:12 rider goes out of frame and its a sketchy pan
3:42 is Reeealllyyy under exposed.

And alot of the focus pulls were shaky.


This edit is cool. And making a video to capture a whole roadtrip is hard. It looks sick and yea, sure VOD worthy because the riding is amazing.

But I have started to notice how little the pinkbike community knows about video and photo skills. It is ridiculous. This is VOD worthy but how dare you compare it to the collective. Common guys...
  • + 6
 DSrider..... Over and under exposing different shots highlights different parts of the shots you want to see, and changes the feel of the video. Like for instance, he used slightly lower exposure for the gravel bits so you can see the detail, in low exposure detail stands out more. Also for the silhouette of the jump that the jumps through. Same for over exposure, it brings out details you wouldn't normally see. No, it's not perfect. But you buy a 5D and do better, THEN you can complain. It was a sick video.
  • + 6
 @ dsrider

The shots that are out of focus are there for a reason. They add variety to the video! and I'm sure if Mr. evergreen-p didn't think they were good he would not put them in.
  • + 9
 Alright so every shot wasn't absolutely perfect, we're still amateurs using a borrowed cam... I appreciate you spending what seems like a little too much time tearing our video apart and finding every possible flaw.
  • + 3
 What did I say. I explained that is a good video and VOD worthy. But not " the best video of the year"

feel free to tear into my videos. I would like to hear it
  • + 8
 I have better things to do with my time then sit on a biking website beakin kids videos all day.
  • + 4
 Allright man.
  • + 8
 "But come ON the guy has a 5D for christ sake!!!!"

It's not even our camera just so you know.
  • - 1
 Thats sick you got a chance to use one. But i said almost everything i wanted to say already.
  • + 8
 None of your videos have gotten VOD...
  • - 2
 Ya, his Glenmore DH got VOD back in '08
  • + 4
 I'm talking about dsrider
  • + 4
 Oh, ya, your right.
  • + 1
 So your saying you only know what your talking about if you get VOD.
  • + 1
 Well played
  • + 0
 well one of dsriders vids are worth VOD but it still has a lot of flaws that people can point out too...
  • + 0
 Please do, i would love to hear feedback
  • + 2
 i was bluffing...
  • + 2
 Jesus....
  • + 4
 We should be able to choose the image that represent the video, just like on VIMEO....this one could be much better then just black if the uploader had this option....it would be better to everyone in pinkbike....
  • + 2
 well ill give my 2 cents its a good video of course there are better ones than it and not all clips are perfect but in any video it will have something un perfect with it and also some of dsriders vimeo videos are VOD worthy in my mind your all over reacting
  • + 2
 going to ride silverstar sometime this week. any fun trails with rolers and jumps and berms i should ride?
  • + 2
 pipedream, rockstar and world cup
  • + 2
 that was profoundly one of the best videos i have ever seen
  • + 2
 yeah i rode rockstar it was sweet but didnt get to ride many blacks cause i was with my dad
  • + 2
 This video is crispier than a swedish turnip factory!
  • + 2
 i cant get enough of this vid ive watched it like 30 times now
  • + 1
 this is one of my favorite videos of all time. the song is aboslutely incredible, the riding is awesome, the camerawork is awesome, everything just fits perfectly in this video.
  • + 1
 ... .. bold much?
  • + 1
 me or luckynugget?
  • + 1
 CHYEAHHH BRAHHH!!!!!
  • + 2
 lool ds your videos don't even compare to this. you think because you do some low quality front to back focusing and non consistent pan shots gives you the credibility to criticize this vid? where is your big vod? while i agree it shouldn't be compared to follow me or other high end videos its a f*ck of a lot better than the B- grade edits you are putting out
  • + 11
 JUST WATCHED IT. DIDNT SAY A WORD ... JUST CLAPPED MY HANDS .. beyond good job boys!!!!. SHOULD BE INSTANTLY VOD!!!!!!
  • + 12
 Crazy manuals, and silverstar looks so good for opening day Big Grin !

  • + 10
 SICK VID!
  • + 2
 sweet but the song really dont suit it
  • + 9
 i gotta disagree i lived the song it went really good with it.......
  • - 1
 i hated the song. the riding was sick but the song made it feel almost boring. i agree with mtbtyrrell. i really don't know why hes getting neg probs for sharing his opinion.
  • + 3
 thats how i felt nice one for the back up Smile
  • + 3
 pauldh you just need to appreciate how the music was used. the song was obviously picked to emphasize the pure beauty of that mountain and trails. subtle, flowy, smooth, and gorgeous views. i felt it was an amazing song choice to put with a vid.
  • + 0
 the riding was hardcore man but the song made it sound like a funeral
  • + 1
 that wasn't hardcore riding man. it was flowy, smooth riding. if you'd rather a vid with slayer go find some DH racing/hucking. it would fit better there. not here.
  • + 1
 it was good riding thats for sure
  • - 1
 clarkestar i realise what they were doing with the use of the song to make it looked chilled and what not but my point was that i just didn't like the song if it was on a hardcore dh section or super stylish street ride it wouldn't change my opinion.
  • - 1
 the music was pretty bad but the filming was real good and the riding was so amazing for riders ive never heard of
  • + 8
 Its pretty amazing watching these two, they have totally different styles but good in their own way. One has more of a racer style and the other has smooth slopestyle. Either way, great riders, editing, filming!
