Got bored and made a Cancellara music video.

edited January 2010 in The bottom bracket
Used to record and edit music vids for bands years ago and had 2 hours spare the other week so thought i'd try and make something in order to dust the cobwebs off the video-editing side of my brain. I think i'll be reviving those long forgotten skills soon for some forthcoming work with a TV company...

As a challenge, I picked a music track at random and tried to get the video to fit. I reckon it kinda works. Could be better but it's only a 90 minute job.

Also, youtube really messed up the quality/resolution in parts. :?

    I liked this when I saw it on the Euro cyclist group and I like it having watched it again.

    His cadence and speed is amazing. I like the effect when he passes Brad as well.

    Well done Bhima - the music and your editing encapsulates a superb ride.

    Superb video. But I kept expecting the music to actually get inspiring and upbeat at some point!!

    That is excellent stuff - I particarly liked the bit at about 5.00 where he crosses the line with his arms aloft

    Excellent video.

    I like the bit where the German (?) guy is knackered and Fab just seems to take it all in his stride, massively impressive shot where he takes a drink and his legs are still going like pistons out of an ocean going liner

    It reminds me a lot of when I ride TTs. 8)

  • look at Larsons pain face in the slow-mo shot! Holy fkucing Christ! :shock:

    even tough its the riders who put themselves through that pain you seem to have portrayed fabian as some kind of evil cycling monster who loves dishing out suffering to tehe others!

    good music/video sync

    Good stuff Bhima, excellent footage that really demonstrates Cancellara's phenomenal bike handling abilities very well in places.

    Thanks guys. :)

    For those who asked, the German guy is Tony Martin, the music is "The Forbidden Pool" from the LOTR 2 Towers Soundtrack and, yes NapD, I thought of Pokerface when I put the Wiggins bit in. 8)

    No, the part where other riders blow by me. :)
