|Just wanted to share with you all the product of the final days of riding of 08 here in Michigan. In pretty much one day of filming, we were stoked to throw down pretty much all our big tricks, and after the headaches of editing it finally came together. Don't hate on the MGMT; about 5 other wake films were posted with this artist since I started the project. It just seemed to 'fit'. |
Pardon the poor quality; I'm still using the old still-shot for video. Can't wait to get into an HD setup eventually...
Thanks for checking it out!

|That intro was awesome, very inventive, great video.|
|Sweet video. I feel a lot better now that I know I'm not the only one jamming MGMT when I ride.|
|Well done. Great riding and editing and the song choice was perfect.|
|hahahaha MGMT its funny to see this band that I have been into for a while start blowing up, mainly via the use in wake, snow, and skate video. Fuel TV is help fo sho too!|
|great vid man awesome use of mgmt with it. The song fit perfectly in there. Although i will have to say MGMT is starting to get way over used in wake videos imo|
|Song went well with the vibe of the video...at least you didn't use electric feel.|
|Dope video. Intro is first class.|
|Thanks all. |
And the indy shifts that opens Alex's part deserves more recognition. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. He was charging it!
|Great vid man, good riding. Really original intro, loved it.|
|that into was probably the most legit thing ive seen in a wake/skate/snowboard vid. |
and the kid who rode second killed it!! super steezy!
|sweet editing man|
|yeah that's sweet....winter needs to be over now!|
|Very nice... I need to learn to edit and add music and what not to some of mine... What programs did you use??? And I agree with everyone else the intros and special effects were awesome....And did you say that you shot the video on a point and shoot digital camera that has the video option??? if so that is even better... I got a HD video camera last summer and my videos did not turn out that good...|
|Yeah Billy, I used a Panasonic Lumix still shot on the video setting. Decent quality, but I'm definitely ready for an upgrade. As far as editing goes, I used Adobe Premier Pro CS3 as well as a little work in Photoshop CS3. Thanks for the compliments!|
