 Great filming TY. Your productions are always very professional. Me likey.

Only criticism i have is what's up with the blurred edge effect, like vignetting around the edges? IMO just makes it look that little bit amateur.

Other than that, Thorpy says it's fully sick. If for some reason i'm over you way/you're over mine i'd love to do a shoot with you. (y)

 Hey mate, cheers for the feedback. It's an edge blurring effect. I personally thought it looked prime, and adds a bit of focus to the centre of the image. It's not the kind of thing I'll be using for every edit. I try to make every edit unique in the way I colour correct and modify the image, this was no exception. I felt it appropriate to do something different, and that's simply the way I went about doing it. Yeah man, I'll be sure to let you know!

 Cudos to do something out of the ordinary man. I have to admit it made me look more to the centre, but i've used it once before and i never really liked that effect. I can see you reasoning though. Top work dawg.

 I agree, I liked the blurred edges, but maybe a bit too much. sick edit though.

 Oozing with speed and moto style that has transferred from a childhood of motocross racing, Brent makes riding a bike look effortless through what others would normally struggle upon.
Brent is at the top of his game for his age, and is one to look out for in the coming years on the Aussie race scene.

This project was by far the funnest and professionally shot I've worked on. We allowed our selves plenty of time across multiple shoots and filming 5 tracks across Sydney to get a variety of footage.
This project could not have been accomplished with the help of Brent's parents and the Shire Boys.

Brent would like to thank his sponsors:
Knolly Bikes:
TWE Wheelsets:

Equipment used:
Canon HF200
Rode Vid Mic
Wide Angle lens
DIY dolly
DIY camera jib

Edited using:
Adobe Premier Pro CS5, Adobe After Effects CS5, Magic Bullet Looks

 I thought that was pretty good Ty! Only thing was I didn't like the tilt shift effect on some of the shots, it was a distraction. And some of the early shots looked a bit soft. Other than that - sick!
