Barney - Cenotaph
« on: November 21, 2022, 05:07:50 AM »


At the start of May this year, Barney reached out to me and shared his appreciation for The Finisher video. Shortly after, he showed me a spot he was trying, and soon enough he landed it. Barney is in a fortunate position to be able to stunt for an excessive amount of hours.... and that's exactly what he's done for the past 6 months. We've shared many conversations and voice calls during this time, and he would regularly send me clips of his attempts, then eventually landings. His vision and dedication to the art of stunting is something I simply cannot grasp. Once his fire starts to burn, there's no way to put it out. I am forever honored to be in the position of editing this video.

This is by far the greatest effort I have put into editing a video. With access granted to Darkstar's Replay Manager for Blender, I set out to produce a fully cinematic stunt video. While still having many years of experience using Blender, and Replay Manager being very easy to use, the camera rigging process was extremely time-consuming to get everything looking perfect. With Barney looking over my shoulder we worked together and captured what we believe to be the best views of his stunting accomplishments.

I also need to extend further thanks to Dannye and Darkstar. Their contributions to creating tools are the very key to the success of this production, both stunting and editing.


Alright, done reading? Turn that webcam on. I want to see your brains melt. Enjoy!

Times like this I regret not having a webcam around for recording a reaction. I'm still in shock after what I've just seen. :ninja: I'll edit this comment with a detailed response, gotta rewatch this thing right away. Will there be a review template available?

ok, despite that the video title is a reference to one of Car Bomb's songs, this is a great video
i'll probably do a reaction video soon, but JUST LOOK AT THE CINEMATICS FAM.

Despite having no webcam, I wanted to at least have my audible reaction. I'll post more of thoughts when I can scramble my words back together. Until then, I'll keep replaying this. Thank you for this.

How do I heap enough praise and provide with apt input without seeming redundant is what came to mind first upon viewing this. Every rare instance Barney drops a video is a mammoth occasion after all. Well, to me this is the pinnacle of Barney and his stunting essence folded into one video. The amount of mind bending combinations alongside unfathomable big airs is a sight to behold. That such ingenuity and originality is on display in 2022 and is magnificently exemplified in this video is every bit as earth shattering to me as when I first laid eyes on Unorthodox. The editing does only justice and there's some delectable shots and great pacing.

Crazy, even though I have no idea about spots in vc, without a doubt there are 3 completely outstanding and that I can swear that they generated expressions on my face, because they simply look great and fantastic.
In order of my likes:
2:22 - Grind to ledge to box prec : It's like WHAT?? It just slides through those grinds and out of nowhere, BOOM, you're in the fucking box. There is no comparison, criticism or complaints, excellent 10/10

4:38 - Trashmaster bump to radio prec : Uhh ??? As someone who only enjoys SA for now, seeing this kind of stuff is like, meh; But if you watch this on VC for some reason, I don't know if it's the editing, atmosphere, maybe the song but it becomes completely sensational, I repeated this stunt like 6 times, it's just out of this league, extraordinary bro 10909323/10

2:56 - PSM to Hyman stairwell: oh yes, this was the best, yes it looks quite high, yes, there are already many stunts like this, yes I repeated it like an idiot, for my mental good, it's good that you didn't get on top of it the grind, I think it would not be TOP tier otherwise.
Gold crown for this place, simply without words it looks good, and I like it so much when the ''timing'' of some stunt goes with the song in the video, regardless of the fact that the highest point of the song is not that, or it is not the moment of the drop
However, something very remarkable about the video as well.
∞/10


Gooood job Haywire  . Great achievement with the choices of the sky , camera angles , the transitions from when Bump - to the landing site , songs 9/10 , not my tastes but ok ok
, and the change of sky from minute 3:28 to 3:33, is very clean!
Applause to those involved!!

My reaction was pretty scuffed and i ran into problems
