Beautiful images. Thrilling action shots. Crisp editing. There's only one thing wrong with it...I don't know what it's about.

If this is a trailer for a film I need to have a good idea what the story is about by the time it's over. All I get out of this is some great snowboarding footage interspersed with cars spinning around for no apparent reason. I get no sense that there is a story here.

snowboard films dont typically have stories. they're more like a series of consecutive montages of sponsored riders. typically videos are made by snowboard companies who have a "team" of riders that ride for them, they go out and film the riders doing their thing, hitting rails, jumps, etc... and then they sell the video to kids in skateshops. it's a great promotional tool, it says "hey, check out our company, we've got this rider and he can do THIS! aren't we cool? buy our stuff!" ...but other times certain companies will take a more documentary approach and mix the footage with interviews and document their trips around the world as they travel to all these different areas, those are the good videos.

i hope that cleared that up. oh yea, skateboard videos are like that too. check out Transworld, they make really good skate/snowboard videos.

I see. I was unaware. I thought it was a narrative film that used snowboarding as a backdrop.

you are right Briyan, its actually snowboard movie and those narrative shots are intros for each rider. So every snowboarder has 1-2min intro before riding section.

Im not doing it for any other company though, i started it on my own and later on asked some support money. I already spent so much money and time on it, so i wont make it back, thats for sure...

Alex, u just have to click on play. Before that you have to get divx player though...

there were some really awesome shots in there, nice use of the camera supports. i've actually been working on a snowboarding film this year too, and unfortunatly i dont have all the fancy gear that you have but if you've got a minute, you should check out my trailer too.

thanks again,

Bryan, i'll check out your video tonight, i dont have flash on this PC. Actually my gear is not fancy at all, i built my cable cam and dolly track all by myself. Cable cam system is not hard to do at all, takes 1-2 days to build. But there is the risk of crashing your camera though. My dolly still shaking like hell when shooting with tripod, shooting on hand its ok.
If you want to get great inspiration for snowboard movie check out Elekrep(actually if u put it backwards - Perkele, it means Damn!) To my mind its the best snowboard movie ever done. www.elekrep.com
Its free also!

Giuseppe, its not my reel. Its more like collection of the best shots in video.

Bryan, i've checked your video, i liked it. Your riders are twice as good as mine, lucky you. Maybe if i were you, i would put in some more jumps, coz regular people like it. They usually dont get the idea of hiting the rails...

thanks! and yea, my riders are pretty sick. we dont have many shots of jumps or back country yet because we havent been getting that much snow in quebec this year, it's really really bad. but we are going to be building a huge table top at the end of the month, we've got a snowmobile to tow us in and everything, it should be pretty awesome.

let me know if you put another trailer or more footage up on your site.

peace
