L’enfer de l’ouest

Before it became hell on wheels, Brother #2 and I checked out the Tour of California in the sunny, warm northern end of the state…

Wondering what hell on wheels looks like? Check it out (scroll down a smidge to see the video).

  • Nice video. I like the shot of the empty bike coming out of the tunnel and the guy fishing in the window. Very PA.

    For such a short jaunt, I usually leave my spare bikes behind, but it is always nice to have the coach along, no matter where you are going.

  • Exceptionally tight video–loved it all. My sister and I must be related: I was going to call out as my favorites exactly the same two clips she did. Very nice timing on the fishing-guy clip. The way I’ll tell it, you deliberately planned it that way.

    But a thousand other nice shots too, tight zooms pulling back as the riders approach–and by the way, nice call on the Kraftwerk. If I’ve heard it before, I don’t remember it, but as soon as it started, I wondered if that was what you’d picked. When the vocals came on, I knew.

    Stay dry!

  • I’m glad you both liked it. It’s like we’re related or something.

    MrJ, I should really claim that I base my editing technique on the work or Eisenstein and his contemporaries who worked within great constraints–lack of money, footage, etc.–and in coordination with the musicians of their day.

    However, my editing style is probably further from the Eisenstein school and closer to the serendipity school of editing.
