much better job with angles and filming on the second problem.
-
is the point that you become a worse climber by going to St. Mary's or that their film students don't learn squat?
-
did the cameraman fall over?

sheesh, this is really, really bad. low ball, over sold, horrible commentary, crappy angle. I could go on.
-
5 out of 5 stars well down. great music, really fits the flow of the climber and overall it produces a great vibe.
-
4 out of 5 stars cool moves.
-
Yep - that's a cool move, seems like it could go static though by crossing over and using the left sloping gaston as a right sidepull (of course, I'm not feeling the holds or the body position so what do I know?). Good movie.
-
2 out of 5 stars I'm sure that's a proud send and that it was a cool moment to witness but the video isn't much to behold.
-
cool problem - awful clicking. please add music or.
-
seems a bit odd to put up an eliminate that only eliminates holds for the hands but not the feet.

At any rate good send.
-
i agree with mturner, i liked the video but you saved the worst for last.
-
2 out of 5 stars I wanted to like this vid. I think the idea is good and the filming and editting is generally pretty good. However, the opening sequence is sophmoric and it doesn't make sense that you introduce an area with a title and then proceed intersperse clips from a different area.

butt rock + dynos = wtf
-
5 out of 5 stars much better than the intro
-
cool line!
-
good send, props on the family effort. realize that part of the purpose for the comments is to critique the vid which leads me to this: this video was annoying - the music flitting in and out, the rather stale camera angle, the repetitive fall after fall. Most people want an implied journey not the whole thing. Still, props on the send.

I liked this. In fact I was surprised by how much I liked it (it made me think, "geez, I need to start climbing routes again (rather than boulders)!"). In terms of cinematography it would have been better if the person filming had stayed ahead of the climber's hands - there were a lot of frames where the climber moved and it was impossible to see what he was moving to. That said, I liked it. I liked the music. Overall, pretty groovy. I'll shut up now.

did you figure out how to use the reflector a little late?
-
5 out of 5 stars seems to me that a video showcasing quality climbing would do more to motivate people to protect the place. you want people to see it and think "I want to climb there - I better do something" not "if I go there someone will attack me with a banana." (we all know, thanks to monty python, that bananas are extremely dangerous). that said, thanks for posting the video and doing your part to keep access open for the rest of us.

if you're going to post vids - post area and problem information too!

5 out of 5 stars Good stuff. Good music, good angles, I even liked the funky dance at the end. Well done and nice send!
-
Wow - impressive full contact spotting. (Where is the sarcasm font ... ?)
-
Nice below the waist lockoff. Sweet.
-
invalid - didn't top it out. It looks like those upper moves are the crux. Excellent cinematography though.
-
The pucker factor might go down if the pads were in the dropzone.
-
JAMES is awesome!
-
1 out of 5 stars ... or 2 minutes of flailing to butt rock.
-
cool problem - nice send.
-
2 out of 5 stars jw - I think that qualifies as a highball. What I'm wondering is what is up with not staying ahead of the hands? The most annoying thing about a climbing video is watching the climber reach to holds outside of the frame.
-
This is perhaps the first time I have ever felt sorry for Chris. Someone at Prana probably should have watched this and realized that it doesn't look like Chris is enjoying himself at all.

Where is the problem?
