skate videos have become big-time, in a way.
steadicams, expensive cameras/lenses/lights/etc, extensive post-pro.
the last is what i'm trying to address.
we've reached a point where any kid with a few hundred bucks can put his favorite ledge on the moon, and have his buddies shoot kamikaze unicorns out of their eyes while doing stiff-legged makios. in hd.
how excited do you get about really flashy post work in a video?
can it make up some of the ground lost by mediocre skating? (hopefully not)
can it make up for mediocre/unimaginative shooting?
how big a part does good music/pacing play?
...basically what i'm asking is:
as a viewer, what makes a good video? what do you most enjoy watching? what gets you most ready to go rip shit?
