People are talking, some right here on the MTBR forums, about our new mountain bike film Life Cycles. If we had endless time to answer all the comments people make we would. So I’ll take this opportunity to answer a few that we see all the time.
“Man these guys are taking forever to produce this thing”.
We are taking forever to produce Life Cycles because we are making it the absolute best we can and taking the time to make it as close to our vision as possible.
“ It can’t be as good as the Collective”
I know why people want to compare us to the Collective, but really we are two totally different film companies that are producing completely different films. If people need to say one or the other is “best” then I guess they’ll have to decide when the see both.
“Yeah those few clips are sweet, but can they put a whole film together like that?”
To pull off an entire film without filler shots and at the level we want has been a monumental task. We have only released a few clips to help get people excited but not wanting to give away too much of the film. But to simply answer this question as someone that knows each shot that we have, the answer is YES.
We have been lucky enough to have two other very talented filmmakers Anders Petersen and Markus Nurmi follow us on many of our shoots over the past two years. They are producing really cool behind the scenes videos call “The story of Life Cycles”. You can expect to see at least 5 episodes leading up to the films release. Enjoy.
