    I finally got around to making a video with some of the footage from the trip to Mt. Conness/North Peak. Here it is:

    http://www.splitboard.com/vids/Conness050626.wmv

    I’m calling it a “teaser” because it doesn’t have all the footage from that day (pics, fassnor’s video, etc.)… maybe bcr will be inspired and post a follow-up! And because it’s my first attempt at a video. Editorial comments etc. welcome.

    Also, just wanted to say to all the other folks out there who have done videos, especially bcr who has done so many – great job! Man, editing can be a lot of work. 🙂

    Hope this provides some off-season stoke! I’ll try to get to the Shasta video before next season starts…

    Nice controlled/uncontrolled? heel slide. You got pretty intimate with that schrud. What was the pucker factor on that one? 😯

    At the start it was “semi-controlled”, as in I wasn’t speeding up, but I wasn’t slowing down either. The snow was firmer than it was up top, no tip clip, blah blah blah. I got it under control, but then saw the schrund. Didn’t think it was open because 1) it was completely covered 2 weeks earlier, and 2) when we scoped it out from above it looked covered. Turns out we were looking at the bottom of a different chute.

    As for pucker factor, I’d say it was rather high at the end there. ❗

    Great Freaking Job Jim. I just ordered my new PC and cant wait till it gets here,guess I will spend the rest of the summer learning how to edit using adobe premier . What type of camera and helment cam are you using? And here is a question for allof you who were at conness on june 10-12. My friend joe did some nice work on a 8 minute video of that weekend. the problem is it is only Joe and Me in it. There were many others there but because we stayed low it looks like we are alone. Should we post the video? Votes only count from those that were there.

    Awesome work jim! 8)

    Are you sure that’s your first video!
    I really liked the special effects, film effect and noise, scratch sound…etc. The mixed in helmet cam footy is sweet too.

    Thanks for putting it together!

    P420,

    Dude who cares who is or isn’t in the video?! Post that thing! 🙂

    Let’s see. Yeah, I’m sure it’s my first video, because it took me forever to get from what I wanted to see in my head to getting it to actually happen onscreen. Now that I have a clue, I’ll get to more footage I have lying around… the problem now is media storage space!

    420 the helmetcam is the Adventure Cam 3 from Viosport. Unfortunately it’s kinda pricey, and you pretty much need to get some of the accessories like the LANC remote and rechargeable battery pack. Worth it though. The camcorder I’m using currently is a Canon Elura 50 that I got on ebay (and was a lot cheaper than the helmet cam!). It’s really small, which was a main concern of mine. I figured I’d mainly be using it for helmet cam footage so I wanted it to fit easily in the pack. Problem is it doesn’t seem too reliable. Of course I bought it off ebay so maybe I got what I paid for. About half the time it tells me to “eject the cassette”, and I have to physically smack it to get it to work… probably not a good sign! 🙂 I did some research online and it seems that many people have had this issue with this camera. One of the reasons I got it though was it was one of the recommended cameras on Viosport’s site. You want to make sure the LANC remote will work with whatever camera you’re looking at it, otherwise you have to dig the camera out every time you want to start/stop it.

    Anyway, post that video! (Too bad I suspect there’s no footage of the adventure we had on the traverse from hell! :shock:)

    Chris I sent you a PM. I have the FTP address/user info but I don’t remember the password. My FTP app remembers it for me and won’t tell me what it was :roll:.

    Ah yes, the TRAVERSE incident, how could I forget? The editing /time nightmare will be on me soon. Im getting a PC with plenty of RAM and harddrive storeage. I am using a sony dvd301 camcorder. Great camera and it does have a LANC set up. The problem with my camera is it puts out a dvd signal with no firewire port. But last night my new A/V pyro box came in. Now I can link my camera, a VCR, or any analog/digital signal to my PC via firewire. My buddy Joe(damn this guy needs a screen name) is shooting with a sony mini DV and using imovie to edit. Next season with all this vid footage we all should be able to come up wit at least an hour long full feature film.

    The best part is approching the schrund , see how small it looks from above, maybe like a 4 inch wide gap and then BOOM. I think I will watch it again…and again…and agin
