Free MTB Movie: Life Cycles

The Video Production Network (that I run) is showing the mountain bike move, Life Cycles, as a free workshop to it's members. I would like to invite a small few of you guys to come and watch the movie with us and share your thoughts as well. Seating is limited, so this invite is for (1) RSVP +1 additional per4sion and I need to limit this to 20 people.

This workshop we will watch the 47 minute movie "Life Cycles" and spend the following hour attempting to deconstruct many of the key elements and discuss what and why the creators did what thy did.

Visual Moderator:
Director/Editor Pete Schuermann

Audio/Music Moderator:
Film Composer & Sound Designer John Schuermann

This is an incredibly epic movie that took 7 years to make. The cinematography, audio, music and editing are so well cared for - every detail thought through, every emotions caught on film!

“We started talking about it in 2004 and spent a couple of years talking to get in line with what we wanted to do,” Derek along with co-director Ryan, spent years pulling together this Odyssean project, with a result that’s nothing short of remarkable.

Part of the reason the film took seven years to bring to fruition was the insistence on the seasonal storyline. “We had to shoot over several years to get light to match [from take to take],” Derek said. “Using a big crane camera, you might get one shot that day. Now, for the scene in the big old-growth forest we needed cloudy days. If we went up and it was sunny instead, we’d spend all day sitting in the forest. But we knew what we wanted and weren’t willing to sacrifice it for speediness, so that definitely made the time drag.”

If you only come for the movie, you will not be disappointed, but the conversation afterwards will prove to be interesting at best. Please feel free to bring your spouse, significant other, boyfriend, girlfriend or just a friend!
