Flow - Elements of Freeride

To absorb the rhythm of nature is the universal ride of chasing trail. A synthesis of rider and mountain, forest and air. Pure style of human exertion through technology within an ancient landscape carpeted with diverse organic life. View the Non-Instrumental version here: https://vimeo.com/71614964

 Thanks everyone for enjoying the flick, I made it for YOU. Couldn't have pulled it off without rider and geophysicist Rex Flake, who's one-in-a-million persona provided the inspiration for the project. Now let's get out and RIDE!

 Such a great vid! Full of creativity to say the least. Your filming of Rex having fun on a bike in an amazing setting is the meaning of joy.

 Is the rider one of the guys in pedal driven, the movie on netflix, by any chance?

 This is definitely one of the best VODs I've seen for a very long time!! Well done

 Someone get this guy some proper kit, he's a sick rider!

 Congratulations are in order: very original edit, outstanding work on the picture and burly actions. However may I raise the following points, there is a lack of information concerning the dip angle and the strike of the bedding of the sedimentary layers displayed at 0:16. Furthermore, could you please state the gravitational acceleration in Central Washington at 1:04.
Cheers!

 There is no better place in the world than the central cascades... Nason Ridge, Alpine Lake Wilderness, Enchantments. This edit brings me home.

 Hey Rex, You really shouldn't ride alone, any time you need someone to go with just let me know. I will make the trip!
  • + 1
 and to think, all it takes is some idiot hiker to be walking up the trail your coming down to screw up your flow. all the energy and time wasted....

 Was Rex Flake in the documentary Pedal Driven? If so, he definitely deserves this. His passion for the sport is staggering. So, to Rex Flake, props...

 best video I've seen in months. this gets my vote for best video and sharpest dressed mountain biker. love the song too, it does a good job of going with the the theme of blending the romantic and classic rational qualities of mountain biking. form and function coming together beautifully. precision mechanics and the pure joy of flying down a mountain on two wheels. thanks for making this.

 Great video! However, in the beer mecca that is the PNW, you finish with a Rolling Rock?!?!
  • + 2
 With all the great AMERICAN CRAFT BEER nowadays why that, right?
  • + 4
 I like trying lots of tasty craft beers too but I prefer watery beer after a long sweaty ride. Or during a long sweaty ride. Oh who am I kidding before a long sweaty ride.
  • + 3
 Dont knock the Rock.

 What editing program was used for this? I really like the comment lines etc.

 I'd put my money on After Effects. Industry standard, great UI, and has pretty straight forward motion tracking features that allow for the labeling effect you see in this video.
