MLK Holiday - Demo Forest - Video Shoot/Test

  • Jan 20, 2014 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

If anyone else has Martin Luther King Jr. day off feel free to join me at Demo Forest while I do my videography thing. I'll be testing all my new video equipment and filming various shots with my fast, lightweight setup to make better films for future SJMTB rides. Plus I hope to capture enough footage to make at least a 2-3 minute edit. The pace will be a little more relaxed on the downhill since I like to setup awesome shots and session stunts and jumps. Personally, I find Demo is way more fun this way. 

Due to the nature of the event we won't hit up multiple loops so technically this ride is actually more friendly for those that aren't in the greatest shape (like me as of late). Advanced beginners will find this more at their level since the pace is that friendly. 

 I've learned a lot about filming and editing since last summer when I did this edit:

I'm striving to be 200% better this year. I promise I'll do my best to make you look like a pro on film if you come and join.

      The Seether version rocks but lacks the heart and soul that George belts out. No, wait I meant cow bell. I gotta have more cow bell like the original.

      Exactly!! That felt like yesterday. I can't believe that was shot with a super cheap cam and edited on sketchier software.
