Look, if people clan make movies about running and get others to watch them, then clearly the fault is not the material.
It's not the wakestyle vs airstyle, it's not the tricks, it's not the handle pass or slim.
It is the style though. Not the style of the kiter. The style of the director.
Inability to pace properly. There is nothing wrong with an intro scene but it can't be so long and drawn out you forget what the movie is about.
No emotional commitment to the characters. When we watch movies we want to identify with the characters. If you show a movie with your rider landing trick after trick after trick, it seems way too easy and we fail to identify with him.
Just poor framing. The viewer wants to see the kite and he wants to see the rider, sometimes these movies look like a transformer movie can you can't tell what is going on.
Now I am not a movie director or writer or producer, I'm just a movie watcher. I know a lot of amateurs are out there producing movies that are their first try at a big production. I'm just saying if you want it to look good, go watch some Hitchkock go watch some Warren Miller and think about what he did behind the camera to make it all work.
We need more effort from the guy behind the camera.
You want to see something amazing, watch the "All I Can" one more time from Sherpas. Don't just watch JP Auclair ski through town think about how the director and producer worked on this to make it exciting for the viewer.http://www.vimeo.com/32863936
This is what I am talking about.
