This is a great look at Traffic Distribution from the 2012 Euro Bike. This edit must have taken a lot of work. I say that partly because the editing is super intricate, and partly because Euro Bike went down in August of 2012. That means this edit was 6 months in the making. After watching this I must say it was well worth the wait. That has to be the hardest part for filmers. As a filmer you have to make a call between production value and promptitude. Great edits take time. On the other hand, people are not great at waiting. When an event or contest goes down viewers want to see it as soon as humanly possible. Either they were in the video and want to see how they looked, or they missed the event and want to see what they missed. Either way, people want a quick turn around. There is only so much a filmer can do during editing when he has 24 hours to turn out a video. This is especially hard when someone else is flipping the bill and paying you. You have to work on your employers deadlines. Occasionally as a filmer you get to do side projects. Things that you are piecing together for fun. That is my favorite time to film. You can spend weeks working on the edit and trying out different effects. It’s a project of passion. Some how I believe without knowing if I am right, that this was a project of passion. The frame ticks in this edit take a ton of time and matching everything up to the beat is always a pain in the ass. The more time you invest, the better the edit is going to be, and this is a prime example of that.
