We're working our butts off, Lev! Only so much original stuff you can crank out a day, ya know? These vids, even though they may appear elsewhere, are still definitely worth a watch. That's why we post them.

props to Vital for putting together the best coverage BY FAR on the interwebs. The slideshows, the Raw vids, and the write-ups were flipping awesome. Top notch!

Vital's photojournalism just plain rules.
What was I doing the summer I was 16? Certainly not contending with my heros! Martin Maes, keep on crushing.

if so you would have been aware at the complete lack of organization throughout the event and the lack of cell phone and internet service at the venue, etc.

Yo! Thanks for posting this up, B! So, obviously I play around with POV clips, but I'm also trying to learn the best workflow/ teach myself how to make stuff look good. The first shot (snow falling) was 720p/120fps. The rest were either 2k/30fps or 1440p/48fps. I had "ProTune" on for all the shots. I trimmed, conformed, and used some of the "looks" available in Cineform before moving to the FCP timeline. I should have taken the time to brighten things up- the darkness really increased through the stages of compression leading to the vid posted...
A couple years ago I saw another vid on Vital that prompted me to try it out: Vish Matepi's vid: https://vimeo.com/14287562...which lead to mine: https://vimeo.com/14638294, which was cool...but an aluminum pole bolted to the helmet was juuuust a little too sketchy for my taste.
Dave Trumpore had another similar vid, and his gave me the idea for the beer counterweight...
I'll post a pic of how I mounted this one up when I get a minute.
