We went snowboarding with a group of fellow students last winter. I just got my hv20 that week, so a lot of playing around.Shot some great footage however. The entire movie I made is hardly edited, but the trailer has become a prestige project. Tried some twitch effects, which I wanted to do for some time. I also put quite some effort in editing along with the music (never got bored of hearing Fischerspooner by the way).
Anyhow, I'd really appreciate getting some comments. Here is the link:

Hi, I will soon be shooting snowboarding footage, what settings did you use Interlaced or Progressive?

Nice man. Really like that spray transition on the end. Inspiring stuff!
Im off to the alps for the season with my hv30 next month. Have you any advice?

rather late, but perhaps still useful. If you want to have some slow-motion shots, you'll have to use interlaced. When it's getting dark, progressive will probably work better.
Use a tripod. When I shot this video I didn't bring mine. I'm looking forward to make a steady shot of some jumps, and see what the editing possibilities are. Furthermore, watch snowboard movies!
Thanks for the comments! Will be leaving to the alps in less than two weeks.

Felt like a nice mood trailer
I think your trailer sets a specific mood, but I felt pretty confused as to what the plot or theme is behind the movie.
Just friends having fun on a mountain? Snowboard tricks and stunts didn't seem to be the core portion of the film. So I am wondering why we are watching it? Is it to see just fantastic landscapes and how the solitude of the panaroma's and environment lead to the solitude of soul for these riders listed in the intro?
Throwing out idea's here, however, some great shots such as the one mentioned earlier, very original and interesting to me anyway. Also I loved the clip where that one rider falls into a sink hole or something...
I didn't like the pine cone on the snowboard. Not sure what that meant to communicate in relation to the rest of the footage?
In general, I would say make it half the length it currently is to be more focused. Good luck and show us more. Oh yeah and let us know if there is a plot or theme that you were trying to communicate? It might help structure feedback.
