Yesterday was HOT here in Minnesota. Wyatt Kreel and I got a real chill session in at the skatepark since the motivation to ride street or anything else really wasn’t there. I ended up pulling out the camera for a few clips. Nothing too crazy.
(Make sure you watch it in HD for a little better quality)
I picked up a Canon 60D and I wanted to start figuring out all the settings and what not for filming with it. Wyatt Kreel, Conrad Heppner and myself had a session this morning and I ended up filming a bunch of clips. When I actually had time to ride and get a few clips of myself, the thunderstorm rolled in. Bummer. I’ve been playing with the editing/exporting settings a bit and I think I figured out why this came out blurry/not full quality. Sorry about that. Expect the next one to come out cleaner.
Turn it up to 720p. After I changed up some settings in Premiere Pro, I tossed some of the scrap clips into the timeline and exported them different. A little closer to the quality I was aiming for.
As you can see, the site has changed. The design has been freshened up, and the direction of the site will, in a sense, be changing up starting today as well. Back in 2007, BMXunion was started with no real intension on it going anywhere beyond a college project. In 2011, The Union is becoming a full-time project that will focus on the BMX industry…
