Troy Brosnan - Junior World Champ

Troy Brosnan, filmed edited by sean anderson

 Troy is an amazing rider, but I think for us all to understand his speed and ability a lot better (mostly for people that don't know him eg. non-MTB'ers) I think this video would've benefitted from less slow-motion.
Just got a little bit over the top after a while, there was more slow motion than normal motion in that video.
Some of the shots were very under-exposed aswell.

Besides that, great edit. Obviously you were trying to achieve a certain feel to the movie, a mellow and chilled edit, and it was pulled off nicely.

 Also, is that a jib, or just hand held work?
  • + 2
 @DownhillDomination: really couldn't agree with you more, it was an all-round amazing edit but to much slow mo, didnt show his speed enough.
  • + 8
 But were you looking for speed in a movie that wasn't meant to show it?

I think it wasn't mean to show the speed, more the style and the smoothness of Troy on the bike. Maybe I'm getting it wrong!

 When you have such a fast, capable rider, why not showcase that. Sure, a couple of slow motion shots would've been good, but the majority was slow -motion, which become a bit over the top.
  • + 3
 Ty, no offense, but if you could actually use propper slow motion in your videos i think you'd use a fair bit aswell, i get your point, but clearly i didn't want to do that as the song set that kind of mood
  • + 4
 Sorry, just my opinion. We can't all afford top quality cameras and film good slow-motion shots.
  • + 5
 Haha Sean it really has nothing to do with Ty's movies and his just voicing his opinion which I tend to agree with. It's all personal preference but it really depends what you're aiming for. With this video and previous videos it seems as though you've made what looks good to you and then posted it. I think it would be beneficial for you to take some constructive criticism on board and post something that appeals more to the majority of the audience...riders.

If you slow motioned the whole thing purely to suit the song, ahhhh, why didn't you choose a different song?

 In response Nick, over 90% of comments say they loved it, in my eyes this video worked from the feedback, or in other worlds V.O.D. Just didnt work for you two. I take criticism on always, it's how you improve. I showed this video to Data Romance in order to use their music, and now i have them interested in mountain biking. My videos aren't just to appeal for riders, of-coarse that is a big percentage of my videos views however with my videos these days, im not trying to do the same old video like everyone does.

Cheers

 Nah don't get me wrong I still liked the video as from a filming perspective it was good but if I was just a rider it's not the kind of video that gets me excited to ride. It didn't really portray the riders speed for me, it could have been any punter really.

Anyway I still liked the video, just think that it could have been improved on. Keep at it Smile
  • + 1
 I could be wrong but I think Data Romance did a lot of the music for Life Cycles? I think a faster song could've helped more and a bit less slow motion too. Just seems like if you're going to get the opportunity to film a junior world champ you would probably want to show how fast they are rather than how much style they have. Nice video btw

 Sure it would have been great to be able to capture the raw speed of Troy a little more, but hey that's clearly not what Sean wants to achieve. Not every video has to be balls out action, although at the end of the day it all comes down to personal preference. I don't think anyone is going to dispute that it was a great video, however it did definitely have a mellow feel.

 @DownhillDomination if there was no slow-motion the vid would be like 1:30

 should see lew buchanan then hed beat his ass and lew should have won world champs but his pedal bent and he was only 9 secs down
  • + 9
 evidently he didn't though... could of, would of, should of... Brosnan is a mad dog, worlds and WC overall, you don't think if buchanan was faster it woulda come out somewhere along the way?

 great music, sick riding, sick filming, sick location... That makes a 10 out of 10 in my book. Hey kid, can I adopt you? I will come and life at your place ok? Keep it up!

 He's pretty,... pretty fast! but I don't like his style at all...

 Epic chill vid, but JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A CAMERA CRANE DOESNT MEAN YOU HAVE TO USE IT IN EVERY F-ING SHOT! It gets annoying after a while.
  • + 1
 Imagine having that feeling that you are the fastest junior on the planet in down hilling, Wow that must feel so awesome. And tbh that video matched why he is sponsored by such a good company and why he is actually the junior world champion, it was awesome. Well deserved VOD.
  • + 5
 lewis finished 14th at val di sole and where did troy finish??
  • + 4
 Troy trains harder than any other Junior on the circuit. He absolutely deserves World Champ. The kid works so damn hard n its awesome to see him succeed like this. He is truly dedicated to becoming the best rider in the world, props to him, n congrats Troy on WC
  • + 9
 rossd03 your clearly suffering from jealousy. The WC circuit is all about consistency, hmmm go figure Troy won that cause he was the most consistent rider. WC Champs is about the best rider on the day & luck plays a part (Gee winning at Val Di Sole in 08 ). Lewis & Troy are both phenomenal riders, give it a few years and they'll both achieve greatness in DH (fingers crossed no injuries). Stop being a dick & hating on Troy, he clearly earned his rainbow jersey.
  • + 5
 Full respect for Troy... what a weapon, I just can't wait for next season! Lew started to show what he is made of towards the end of the season, but in the end Troy had the consistency to claim the titles from round 1 onwards...
  • + 2
 that kid was going fast.. trail looks like a fun speedy ride and that kid is lucky to have so much support for biking at that age. close up shots on his face and stuff was a bit weird, could have had a bit more energy in his facial expression haha. overall, definatly VOD worthy Smile

 Everytime I see an Australian video I think "Damn, where are all the snakes national geographic channel is warning us about?"

Very nice riding an editing!

 Troy, your name is going to be big in the biking world. No one here will argue with that.
Hill, Peat, Minaar, Gracia, Bearrenclough, Hunter - And now Brosnan.

You're going to go far kid. Real far. Smile I'm going to bet money that you'll be all over the pro's soon. Good luck, mate! Smile
  • + 2
 wow.
1. dumbest song on the planet
2. too much close up
3. way too much slow mo

what do i know? I'm your viewer, the one watching your vid, a random dher who likes to see fast stuff, little slowmo, something to get me pumped for riding. APPEAL TO ME AND YOU WILL PROSPER
now you can all give me negative props

 an earlier comment by someone said hes fast but they dont like his style of riding? REALLY..whats your style, going fast isnt your style? being a world champ isnt your style? please show us what is..this kid can ride better than all of us on pinkbike when it comes to dh so like that

 That was the BEST downhill video I have ever seen, the editing and song choice flowed so well with the riding, not to mention that Troy is a shredder. Best Vod I've seen in a while.
