    I can't figure out how they do some of that camera work. For instance, at 2:20. The camera is high and moving over brush. Some shots are from a tree perch. This one must be done with some type of camera rigging. Maybe the camera is remotely operated but on a wire strung between trees?

    I'm amazed they kept from busting their asses on all that damp wood. It doesn't look like there's anything on it that would give them extra traction. They stayed clean so even if they cut sections together to make the whole it doesn't look like anyone hit the ground.
    Chasing bears through the woods drunk with a dull hatchet is strongly not advised

    It doesn't matter how many times I watch that video it is still impressive. My favorite part of it all is that they almost always have at least two riders in the shot. I also really like that there are alternate lines so the riders are going off different features in the same shot. That is some beautiful work right there!

    Yeah, there is some nice camera work; definitely some production value. At first I was just going to say that they are using a cable cam for the shot you mention at 2:20, but then I noticed there was a pan at the end of the shot.

    Without the pan, it would just be a basic cable cam setup: Making our own DIY Cable Cam - Pinkbike.com

    It's not likely they are using a remote head (weight, cables, power, remote wheels, monitor etc). My bet is that they've suspended the operator like this:


    It also looks like they're using a dolly on some of the shots. A pipe or skateboard dolly can be made pretty easily with some PVC, skateboard wheels and a little ingenuity…

    This is a down & dirty pipe dolly I put together for a commercial in the desert:

    That's just crazy. I'd like to think those kids did all this on their own. Maybe they did. It just seems to be a lot of experience and craftsmanship rolled into one video.

    The ability to ride that crazy course. The ability to envision, plan, and execute the construction of that crazy course. The ability to envision, plan, and execute the filming of their run. The ability to edit and package all this work (weeks if not months) into a five minute video. My head hurts just thinking about it...

    Yeah, I don't think this was done by a bunch of 1st time amateur.

    I just assumed it was a trailer, or a segment from commercial video…

    BTW, that shot could have also been done with a little radio controlled helicopter.

    That's the most expert riding I've ever seen. Especially how they flick their bikes around corners at top speed. I guess it's a matter of practice like anything else, but to get that good without becoming a cripple in the process is truly impressive.

    Hah, showed my friend that video yesterday and he thought it was awesome.
    Really nice work put into it. A mountain bike video is nothing without good editing and awesome angles.

    I think the video skills are on the same level as the riders, personally. It takes a while to work up to that level of work, easily as long as it took to get that good at riding.

    Idea!

    This is part of a produced DVD. I think it's Kranked 7. I have it and that is pretty much the entire clip of those guys. This vid may even have a few more seconds of them riding than the DVD.

    It's also my favorite part of that whole DVD. The rest is a little lame.

    It is cool. Makes me wish I was 17 and into mountain biking again.












    well... maybe not

    Didn't pick this when I linked that vid, but the trail is (I'm sure) in Follow Me, but not as fun. For reasons unknown to me I put that on when I got home from work tonight. Sorry for the repost (not really).

    That was one of our favorite pre-ride videos last summer. Not sure why, we are all twice their age with less than half their skill, but it still got the motivation level up...

    I just watched that video with my wife. I started by saying I'll never be able to develop the skills to do this. She HATES when I say things like that. Then she saw the video... She agrees... at 45, I'm not gonna be doing any of that any time soon.
    Awesome skills. If only I started younger. Long Island singletrack is nothing like that.

    The title is funny because in my opinion almost every MTB video is shot like this, especially since this is a clip from Kranked which pioneered the wire cam/remote cam in MTB videos. Not really earth shattering as its title implies but mighty impressive trail building and riding.

    This is inspiring. I only ride in the fall abd spring and really have only been mountain biking for 2 seasons, on my trek 3700 but im really pumped about fall so i can hit the local woods and ride. I dont think i will ever be able to go that fast or hit a jumb 1/4 of any of those. Amazing

    Actually I've seen some great RC heli video on snow done around the the Cottonwood Canyons (SLC), but there are less trees to navigate in the alpine.

    Coastal Crew

    I didn't see it mentioned in this thread. These guys are called the Coastal Crew and they ARE good riders AND good filmakers. they have a nice page on vimeo
    They have tons of high quality short edits online and a full length feature that should be out any day now.

    It's refreshing to see a group of young and talented kids actually do something cool with it.
