Product Description

From the first images leaking out of Life Cycles' editing bays, it's easy to see this will be a film like no other: Cam McCaul back-flipping above a wheat field in Saskatchewan, Canada; shots of dust hanging in the air as Mike Hopkins charges down a steep slope of loose dirt. Life Cycles is meant to be about the riders, and the deep connections they have with the bike. But it is also about the art of filmmaking and capturing unique, attention-grabbing action sequences. To achieve this , the film is being shot with the new high-definition Red digital cameras created by Oakley founder Jim Jannard. Life Cycles Shot entirely in Ultra-HD over a two year schedule The story told in Life Cycles will change how people look at the sport Life Cycles Trailer Genre: DH/Freeride/MTN Catalog Page: Invoice Description: Life Cycles DVD Manufacturer Part Number: MB947DVD Country of Origin: US

As a fan of MTB movies for years, the progression of riding has been amazing to see season after season as new videos capturing the newest trails, riders, and stunts appear, but that has not been enough to ward off the demon of monotony.

The evolution of riding had not been matched in the arena of cinematography. Certainly innovative camera work has been done over the years - booms, zip lines, night-shots etc., but nothing like the innovative explosion that was happening with the riders. That is until The Collective released their eponymous film in 2004. They approached the creation of MTB videos from a vantage point that, more that any other movie makers to date, sought to capture the mountain as well as the biking. They used a passion for beautiful cinematography to capture not only the excitement we bikers feel flying down a trail or launching a stunt, with the other part of the equation that is the experience of being in that special environment before, after and while we do it.

Life Cycles is the next evolution of what The Collective did in their three movies - it takes it to the next level. This is the first MTB movie I have ever shown to non-bikers that kept their attention through the whole movie, and they were talking about it afterwards. The cinematography is nothing less that breathtaking, and the effort they went to in capturing the passage of time through the seasons shows their absolute commitment to the project.

Some in the MTBing community may find it such a deviation from the standard grip-n-rip video that they are confused. Some say there is not enough riding. I say this is a misperception.

This is like nothing I've ever seen before. It's not just a bunch of clips edited together with some music. The camera angles, movement and effects rival that of a Hollywood movie. It's a work of art that mesmerises you and makes you proud of your sport. You don't even have to be into mountain biking to enjoy this video. All future MTB videos will be measured by this one.

Even those who are satisfied by merely the occasional bike ride in the park will be thrilled and inspired by this video.

This movie centers not just around great riding and great locations but also around the bike itself. I get it. There's something about owning and caring for a bike- the bike grows on you and you become attached. That's what's great about this movie- it's not just bike porn. (That being said, the cinematography is great, too.) Recommend to anyone who mountain bikes.

Vivid shots and inspiring footage. Interesting and creative perspective. If you like this, I'd also recommend "Seasons" by The Collective.
