Stupid (ly good) Video Right now.

I Just found this in the extra mx thread:

Extra MX - Beyond the MAX (11 min 20 sec)


There are some really "filmic" shots in there - although maybe too many cuts - i like to see linked sequence combos - but some really cool movie magic to be found in this one. Its worth a look.



next to HPP recent RJ gritter " boat cam " movie - this is the sweetest vid i have seen yet - that one had some really cool chase cam-go check it if you havent yet - its on the public gallery at HPP

with everyone making them right now - it looks like flying videos are just going from strength to strength. Whats next?

The AMR video they made was better, this one's trying too hard by comparison.

Yeah, I call serious cheese on that video. Their planes fly great, I wish they'd can all the effects and just let us watch some great pilots flying them without the quick cuts and slow motion.

Also, as one of those snobby audio guys, I can't understand why the VO sounds so bad when they obviously had a pro do sound design for all the graphics.

See, that's what I like! I think those do a much better job of selling off the plane.

I concur, still good footage there, just a bit awkward, and a little bit forced production. but those sliding planes effect compensate some of them. Great job guys. Next production should be better allot better with positive criticism.

yup. There's so many disparate elements that this video is trying to "sell" to the viewer. Like all design, everything needs to be cohesive, this video is quite disjointed, it's not picking its battles.

I don't know....that video is awesome.
The slow motion shots and all the editing and special effects are just great IMHO.

There are hundreds of videos of people flying their E R/C planes on this RC Groups. A couple dozen by me too.

I've tried to make the vids a bit more than just a noggin cam of me flying. My last is a three camera view of my 3DHS 55"Edge. It came out pretty good for my meager skills.

But this (above) PA Mx video is a real professional deal. Very neat to see something more polished and profesional. Neat to see real editing work and camera work and effects. Of coarse, it is a sales tool and they can hire a pro for all the time, energy and work that must have gone into it.

It is certainly something different and higher plane (pun intended) than the all to common vimeo vids. Most all vids are of a plane flying. Thiose are great and what we get when we have a bunch of video rookies showing themselves flying.
For a change of pace, this above video is really great.

Now that I watched all 11 minutes of it, I'll go back to watching dozens of standard guy's flights via noggin cams. Those are great too. Thanks to all that post them. But it's nice to see a company's product video so well polished and professionally done. I think we would have a lot more eye rolling if the company posted a straight 6-minute flight. Like, "Wow, PA has this great new plane and all the video they can post about it is noggin cam clip?! I see that kind of video all the time on RC Groups by the average flyer. I can't believe the company didn't put more effort into the video!"

Not the case at all.
That, IMHO again, is a great vid.
I can't imagine how somebody wouldn't like to see such a professionaly done video?

More recently, my favorite RC video is the one made of the Ohio Huckfest...

http://www.flyinggiants.com/forums/f...cap-video.html

...for many reasons: a) I was there and this video really does get across how much fun it was, and b) it's not pushing product and is just showing so many people having so much fun it's criminal.

But K....the PA Mx vid is pushing a product.
It's their sales tool.
It's from them, for their product, as an advertisment.

Nothing wrong with that.

I agree....that O-Hi-O Huckfest is another great vid, and very well done.
But it's of a different theme. It's not a manufacture's product video.

I just think all the fancy special effects and slo-mo in the Mx vid is so neat to see.
Not like the average guys is ever going to be making such a fancy vid.

I have nothing against PA pushing product, their vids have a purpose and they do it well. This thread is just about favorite RC vids

Well said! I do however agree that the sound was not up to par. And I could see it might not be as enjoyable for some watching it through kool aid goggles.
