Finally going through all the hours of gopro footage i've collected over the last year in hope i can edit something half decent out of it all.

This is just a small sample section of my last winter trip to scotland. Part of a much bigger film to feature trad, french alps and downhill mountain biking.

If anything, i just hope it just reminds you all of lucky we are to live in one of the most amazing places on earth!

Any feedback would be great

In reply to mattb1210: I really enjoyed that, thanks. I thought the initial shots were absolutely stunning, and the climbing shots were great. The walk-in bit of the vid I thought was less impressive but I see the need for it to complete the 'beginning-middle-end' thing. I'd prefer it with more mega mountain shots at the start and less walk-in, but after that perfect! Thanks, I am super psyched for some ice now.

Nice one. You really captured some great footage and some beautiful images of the mounatins. As already mentioned, I also would get rid of 90% of the slow- mo walk in bits but otherwise it's a really nice wee vid. No other criticisms though!

I've done some vids too (see my profile). Would appreciate some feedback on mine as well.

In reply to mattb1210: I take it there's no sound with these go pro things? Shame to not hear some banter. Nice vid though. I'd love to get sorted with all the kit and know how to knock a few vids out like this and be able to look back on great days out.

In reply to mattb1210: really enjoyed that! Only criticism would be that it's not long enough, I have just started a night shift and could do with the vid being about 10 hours long to keep me going!

In reply to mattb1210:
I liked it. It felt like the promise of winter to come; a taster.
I liked the fact that you didn't show any faces, this making it easier for the viewer (voyeur?) to feel like they are in the movie.

If makes me look forward to 3am starts and 5 hour walkins. Can't wait; estivation is almost over.

In reply to mattb1210: ice axe placements synchronization with rhythm, so well done it is barely noticeable, bravo

In reply to mattb1210:

It's good but a bit too much looking at your feet which I presume is due to where the camera was.

In reply to Wee Davie: Your Pigs of Orchy was a classic!!!

In reply to mattb1210:

The landscape shots were brilliant, and I actually liked the footage of the slow-mo trudge on the approach - it rang true!

But I'm afraid I find helmet-cam footage to be pretty generic and that it doesn't really tell me much about the nature of the climb.

I'm in agreement, but with a bit more footage and editing it would be really great. The time lapse opening shots are brilliant and it's got me all excited about winter. Good work!

In reply to mattb1210:

Yes. Some nice shots. But need to Edit, edit, edit. And throw in some other points of view. Best way to learn is to look at some pro stuff and compare shots, lengths, flow etc. If you want to make pro stuff gotta think like a pro. And of the audiance. But then if it's just for you and your mates, then who cares :)

I agree. Heard it was shortlisted for Sundance!

Nice video.

What's the view please at 0:37m?

I'm sure I'll kick myself when I find out.
mattb1210 - on 16 Oct 2013
In reply to mattb1210: thanks for all your comments guys. I certainly agree it needs more editing! Just limited to how many different perspectives you can really get with just a gopro to film with.

If its just given you all an appetite for this coming winter then I'm happy with that!

In reply to CH:

There's a wee scrappy bit of ground that might pass for a layby beside one of the S-bends a couple of thousand metres east of the battle site in Glen Shiel. Stop the car there, move 20m over to the river and you get a view just like that. I must have taken half a dozen of these with most of the cameras I have owned. Used to always get Runrig's Going Home playing at this point. #In the distance, day was dawning ...#

Creag nan Damh up on the left and its smaller friend Sgurr a'Chuilinn centre stage followed by Faochag and then Sgurr an Forcan with the well-known ridge facing the camera and the Sgurr na Creige ridge out to the right of it.

In reply to mattb1210: Nice footage, agree with people about the slo-mo - works in small doses, but you could prune it a bit and substitute some more mountain shots. Great appetiser!
DafMorris - on 19 Oct 2013
In reply to wheelsucker: more like Lord of the Dance
