Located in NC (not getting anymore specific)... mostly just fireroad stuff.

I am open to suggestions... especially from other video makers.

Devotion from Danny Cesare on Vimeo.

No Clip in this movie was sped-up, although it looks that way at times (at least to me)... this trail is crazy fast.

Youtube (updated movie)

Based on the fact that the camera never moves during a shot, I'd say you filmed yourself or that this is one of those "self-shot" video's which are very limited in what you can do.

Given THOSE limitations it's not bad for what it is, edit out the long shots of you gearing up and getting ready to go, and some shots look a bit overexposed (too much light) Get the white balance adjusted before you begin shooting and your shots will look better.

Also if you have a vision in your head of the music and how the video images will match to the music BEFORE you start it can be helpful.

If you just shoot some random footage and then try to find some music to fit after sometimes it doesn't come out as "well-matched"

:thumbsup:
I thought the gearing up shot was tooo long

The light made it tough to concentrate on the riding. Although, I did like the effect of the brightness on the dust coming up.

I like the ghost clone. (I just learned to clone today, so now I will want to figure out the ghost clone)

Nice video for doing everything yourself

Thanks for the input guys... I worked on the timing a little and posted an updated link.

About the exposure... the video on the camera looks 50x better than what cam onto my computer and then 50x better than the web.

only small but; it's droPPing not droping.

Is it me or do you looked way too tucked down with your elbows out. I'm no expert, but thats going to be a stem in the neck if you come-a-cropper!!!

Also think it needs more energy, closer cut clips, there are a few shots, like the one where you start pedalling which take all the energy out. Unless these type of shots are done with slow-mo, or really detailed close-ups, they just look dull.

Don't mean to sound negative, good work for having a crack.
I find that after the first one and some good feedback, the second is usually significantly better. Plus, i agree about visuallising what you want from the video before shooting, as much as possible.

Good luck, and have fun.

Thanks, I will work on the energy level for sure. Thanks for the detailed suggestions.

It was about midnight when I was writing the stuff for those slides... stupid double PP's

Also about the riding position... I am normally a lot more upright, but for some reason I got all tucked for the camera... most of this trail is going down at about a 45+ degree angle also.
