Stabilization....
Glidecam, steadicam etc.....

The follow shots were really smooth...I had assumed you guys had a stabilizer of some sort..
Is it difficult to set up the 35mm adapter?

No, no official "steadycam". I had a small manfrotto tripod which i kept attached at all times, it weighed enough to act like a steadycam, but also shooting in 60i and slowing it down in post smooths out most of the shakyness from handheld camerawork.

it's not difficult to set up the adapter. the first time you set it up it might take a few minutes but after that its usually good to go, i just thread it onto my lens and put the camera on the rails, it takes 2 minutues, tops. BUT the adapter w/rails is sooo awkward to hold! I didn't use it the whole time.

I think the shots and editing are all really great and well done, my only gripe would be the over all color. The snow looks slightly pink or purple at times, I would have also liked a more bumped up vibrant color saturation and a little more contrast while maintaining a white looking snow, but take all that for what it's worth.

Real nice job though;)

I loved iT! Did you make the coors light intro? If so or not, I can guess where you got the sound from! hahaha ;)

I have to agree wih the above post, I think colours could have been a bit better. I can't really specify exactly what but it didn't make me feel very happy? hahaah that didn't even make sense, lol. Maybe it's because it was shot during the afternoon that makes me feel a little sleepy lolol

In the end, g'job!!! Hope you win it!
