9to5 Teaser

I found this in Maelstroms profile. I was watching it and It reminded me of the Collective. Except in a different way then you'd think. It reminded me of what the goal of the collective was. IMO this movie is the exact opposite of the collective. Who's filmmakers goals were to create a movie about the entire style that is freeriding. These guys had those small quick flashy clips and some poor music choices. (Although I'll admit it was good riding) It wasn't done right. It was mostly just 2 second long clips of people dropping of elevations.

Not to offend the riders or anything. But I think theres much more to freeriding. As (the collective) has shown us. I just think they should have filmed the whole thing. Ex. the run-ups, landings and roll outs. Also choose BETTER camera angles. Some weren't the best and made the shot's quality poor.

Wow, incoherent blah...I wonder if anyone will even read it...

Rant/Review over

The goals isn't the same as the collective. Just a movie of some unkown riders...more like collective meets drop-in.

Its a teaser The movie, obviously, won't be like that, ever watch the nwd teasers, 3 second clips for 30 seconds. Don't forget, it is and will be a movie

I will pass along the info if you guys like. Since guys like you are the audience and know what you want.

I guess I just dislike teasers. But I understand thats how the teaser works. Should get you interested and make you want more.

Yep and I passed the info along. I think slightly longer shots would have worked better too

as for music, they might be good buds of mine, but their taste in music is the opposite of mine...so I doubt I will ever like it.
