Hello everybody, :D

Here is the list of the 7 films participating in the Contest, with the links to YouTube.

You can watch them and VOTE for the Public Award till 24 January, 2014, 5:30 pm GMT.
(the votes from the new members during this period with 0 post won’t be taken into account)
  • 1. "Runners 2014 – Extreme Carving" from Fabio Catalano :arrow: (5min51)
    Note: one of the riders, Alex, is from the Swoard team. So his riding won't be taken into account by the jury for the Best Riding Award. But the public is free to vote for this film of course.

    2. "Carver's High" from Matti Kangaspuro :arrow: (5min24)

    3. "300 hour" from Matti Kangaspuro :arrow: (2min22)
    Note: two submissions by the same author are accepted, but the different versions must use different footages and music.

    4. "Extreme Carving with soft boots and soft snowboard" from Petr Lorenz :arrow: (3min33)
    Note: Petr is from the Swoard team. So this movie can't participate in the category Best Riding – Choice of the jury. But the public is free to vote for this film of course.

    5. "Swoard-Snowboards hyper polyvalents" from Edouard Badufle :arrow: (5min06)

    6. "EC Way of live" from David "The Blitz" :arrow: (5min41)

    7. "An Extremecarving's Day" from Jérôme Acquisto :arrow: (3min39)
    Note: the two riders Julien and Patrice are from the Swoard team. So their riding won't be taken into account by the jury for the Best Riding Award. But the public is free to vote for this film of course.
There are two other Awards to win: they will be given by the jury. All the rules are written in this thread.
If a particularly good movie makes unanimity in the jury, it can win two awards. The prizes are 3 snowboards. :D
The results will be announced publicly during the dinner of the 11th ExtremeCarving Session, on Saturday 25 January, 2014. The films will be screened during this party. :birthday:

Enjoy watching! 8) What will be your favorite film?

Pietro, you have to vote at the top of this thread, by clicking, and not by writing the title of your favorite movie. ;-)

Here people can leave some comments.

The film 1 has taken a good start. All the other movies have some great things and sequences too. :bravo: :clap3:
Fortunately there are more Awards beside the Public Award.

Difficult to make my choice...

I like Runners for its overall very good quality and editing,
but as well EC way of life for the very good vibes that we can feel watching it, it reminds me all the good times I have during ECS
and also an Extremecarving day, for the ride sequence.

hopefully I still have few days to make my mind!

Re: Swoard Film Contest - Anyone wanna be filmed?

Post by slayer » Friday 17 January 2014, 1:54

Anyone want to be filmed to enter the comp this weekend (EDIT: if the comp is still open that is! and even if it is not, what the heck...)? I know its late, but I only just came across this forum, in my new quest to do better carving this year.

I am currently a pretty OK softbooter, and handy with a camera, of which I have several (GoPro H3, NEX-7, 7D, VG10).
Examples:
Fast carve, albeit with skier: (imagine you here!)
Slower fun with mates:
Epic lol:
Selfie:

Almost 14 years experience being a chase-cam; my arm follow the rider, and my eyes are looking for danger, of which there is always some. I would say I am very good at judging relative speeds and distances, and know how to compensate for tight carves - as you can see my friends trust me to get really close (and I trust just some to get that close to!). I know the camera tricks required for relatively steady 1080p video, can do 50+fps and post-editing for the truly smooth slow-mo stuff, which I think would be really cool for EC.

I live in the Thalwil area, so would have to be somewhere within 2 hours train ride (sorry, no car). My gear will be no match for you guys of course; I have an old Arbor Roundhouse 158, Salomon F1 boots from way, way back, and some really crappy Burton Cartels. That is why I am on this forum, I am looking for my next equipment upgrade and challenge.

cheers,
Slay

PS. You better be good...
