Marvelous, absolutely marvelous.
I have a special love for single speed bicycles, so this vid appealed to my personal interests.
I liked the running commentary from Brett, very well done the way you switched back and forth between his workshop and the track while keeping the voice track continuous.
The gnat shot set Summer, I wanted to reach into the screen and spray those little buggers.
The kangaroo screamed Australia.
Until this video, I've been thinking that time lapses are played out, you changed my mind entirely with a fresh and creative application of time lapse. Well done.
I thought one or two things were missing that you might have done with the Sony (or two Sonys) the week before.
The bike cam shots from the back of the bike were just fine, no fault there. What seemed missing were bike cam shots from the handlebar, helmet cam shots. No bike cam shots at night.
I'm imagining simultaneous handlebar and helmet footage, displayed split screen. Repeat at night.
Such clips would need to be brief, I'd expect some viewer disorientation from the two views as the bike is often on a different heading than the rider's view, the rider looking where the bike will be going, the handlebar cam showing where the bike is currently going.
In the opening scenes, we get to hear an obnoxiously loud freewheel clacking, sounds like a Chris King hub. Never mind that it's loud, I'm sure there are other reasons to choose that exact component besides its sound, I'm sure Brett knows exactly why he chose it. You captured that sound well
The topic here is sounds, some that are missing. Specifically the cool and gratifying clack of SPD shoe plate engaging and locking into SPD pedal. I'm imagining a brief sequence of close ups five or so different riders, each clicking in, click, click, click, clack, click, the last shown riding off. Maybe for next time.
Overall, an excellent and entertaining presentation, captured a lot of the effort and fatigue the competitors experience, clearly demonstrates forethought, planning, creativity, effort and technical excellence on your part.
I'm in awe and envious, video projects are beyond my imagination.
