    ... and if we just ... XC version of Behind the Barriers

    Hey everyone,


    So this season I decided to switch it up and try to make a video series, sort of a behind the barriers for my team and I. I just finished my first episode and was hoping I could get some constructive Criticism.

    Thanks everyone!

    Overall I liked it! I would say add a common intro like Behind the barriers has. Also, a little less traffic and more bicycle related time/content. Maybe introduce and interview each rider a little more so we know whom we are watching and feel connected like we do to J-Pow, Trebon, and McDonald, ect! Keep it up, I would start to watch the video series if you produce them consistently. Good Luck

    Not bad I agree with duggemos. An intro so we know who you are, less traffic, and more bike stuff. And I would add tell us where you are and where your going. And don't bounce around so much with the camera. Try and make each shot last a little longer so they flow a bit more. Good first attempt its totally watchable. It would be fun to keep up with you guys if you can tell a story of were your going this season.

    Thanks guys!

    Next episode I'll try to do a quick interview with each rider to feel out who they are and every one we talk to as well.

    Not quite sure how I'm gonna do the intro but i'll figure it out.

    Keep the criticism coming!

    None to bad, I agree that it needs an intro and closing but literally once you make them you can just add them to every episode. I'd like more race footage, but I imagine it's not that easy to add in. Loved the part where yall demolish the cheeseburgers!

    I thought it was pretty good, I'd watch the rest. Definitely needs an interview with the riders though.

    cool idea. Felt like I was watching a copy of behind the barriers. Find your own format. Not sure your objective. However, if you want to get far with it, figure out how to promote the races and their sponsors. I bet the race was more interesting than the little dirt road start.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?

    Lost me within 5 minutes. Appreciate what you're trying to do with the interviews, but it went on a bit. Sorry dude, not as good as the first one.

    Nice job I liked it better then the first one. I like the intro and letting us know who people are and what race we are seeing. Now make a little ending bit so it doesn't just cut off at the end. I think your on the right track. Its really cool to see you guys are a high school team.

    I liked it. I thought it was better than the first one too, the interviews were informative and made me laugh. Don't forget guys, these guys are in high school, there's no professional editing being done. That said, I think you're on the right track.

    Episode three was garbage. Which is why I didn't post it.

    Episode Four is legit though. Also, Sea Otter special this week as well.
