    Wow, really great cinematography. Clearly the *Collective* effect is trickling down. Based on the trailer, I'll be eagerly waiting for that release to hit the shelves.

    Just for the filming and production, I'm looking forward to seeing it. But, for now a days' standards it doesn't seem too progressive ridingwise. It's just a bunch of guys hucking off a lot of cool looking stuff. It IS just a teaser, so we'll see. Awesome stuff. I'm liking it.

    I remember u that's a film product by 6 guys...riders, cameramen, sherpa, film editor, graphic designer and so on...no pro, only 6 friends...
    A crew makes a film and not a film makes a crew...understand?
    And filmed in Italy, where sport is synonimous of soccer!
    Sorry 4 my bad english!
    Ciao from ITALIA

    Deep religious experience is an exaggeration, but isn't this something extraoridinary that 'regular' people won't experience? I think this deep experience is especially deep when you have to climb up the mountain on your own rather than shuttle, In the spots where very few bikers would ride!
    Or maybe, showing biking the way Collective did, just makes me feel better?

    Btw. cinematography is great! Nice riding areas too! Is it in the north of Italy? Would love to see the full version.
    Passion beyond reason!

    In THE COLLECTIVE people stay togheter for professional reason...it's a professional collective!In CLOROPHILLA there's a real crew...they stay togheter any days...no pro biker, no pro cameraman, no pro photographer an so on.
    They are mailman, studend, chimical..etc.
    6 friends like push bikes with a lot of passion...
    THE COLECTIVE, NWD and other pro videos are other world.

    hi folks,
    these guys are really not professional biker.
    they have a great passion and a great dream...mountainbike.
    this means free spirit, respect for nature and friendship.
    last year they issued their first video filmed with simple dv cameras and this year they improved a lot of stuff and they'll made a great job (we saw only a 5 minutes longer teaser).
    for us (italian mtb forum friends) it's a graet pleasure to know that a great bike company like banshee is interested in their project, a project made from 6 friends that spend every second of their free time to stay togheter and creating this dream.
    i think everyone can learn what means freeriding....not professional freeriding.
    the location isn't in northern but in central italy. this region is called Abruzzo!!!!!!
    remember this name and don't forget to tell your friends to take a look at www.clorophillafilm.com

    Ciao

    Heck, I'm a XC rider myself and I'd buy the DVD... cinematography looks awesome - it captures the spirit of mtb the looks of things.

    Where in Italy are you from? Where did the riding take place? By the way, that's a very well done teaser.

    Just downloaded the full vid from Totalvid.com, really well done guys. Great filming, nice music, kick ass locations. Only downside at first was...well, the riding. Not that these guys are bad or anything (very good actually), but after watching all the vids with the pros and what not in them, the riding in this is kinda mellow in comparison. Not that I expected (or wanted) to see another huck/backflip fest, I understand whhat you guys are trying to show.

    Still, I liked it enough to watch it 3 times in the last few days, and I'll probably buy the DVD too. I bet a lot of the people who bemoan the lack of XC type vids would get into this more than the freeride peeps, maybe post some links in the general discussion forum too?

    Well done, can't wait to see what you do next!
