Craig, I did not like "unfinished" jump shots. I would have the subject jump 2 times and shoot the landing as well or use 2 cameras to get the same effect. I know shooting skiing is as hard as it gets, but this is what would make for great shots. The calendar shots were fantastic! It gave me idea for the my documentary.

If you don't do this for a living - you should. Understand, my frontal cortex isn't all that well developed .. so I loved the story line and fantasy aspects of the clips, but after watching Warren Miller for years and FUEL.TV a couple times a week.. the actual skiing/boarding could have been trimmed to about 15sec. Good for you.

Craig, just set a second camera (on a tripod) somewhere to the side, down from landing site. when your subject starts to descent, just cut to the second camera.
