Wow, I just had to comment for this one. A lot of effort has gone into the editing and it shows. A really great production full of nice colours. At some moments it was a little much, but not too much.

The level of stunting was really up there. It was amazing to see many of the biggest stunts ever done relanded. Makes me wonder what I would've chosen to reland.

Suprising editing, you put a lot of effort to this one! Good free camera playing all around with sick effects and transitions, likrd nametags idea aswell.

Amazing collection of big airs and some technical stunts, everyone did very well!  :a-cheer:

This is a really cool video. The amazing editing makes me feel proud to be a part of this video. Lex, I feel that your aesthetic and editing skills are beyond the realm of hobby. Are you already doing something related as a professional?

In terms of stunts, this was a great video as well. Everyone landed stunts at a high level.

Shout out to Legend that relanding my stunt :P

First of all, many thanks to Lex for organizing the project.

It was incredibly enjoyable for me to watch older stunt videos again and land stunts for the project. Also, thanks to DBTVSA for bringing attention to the project.

The video edit is unbelievably brilliant. It reminded me a bit of the latest  version of Need for Speed (Unbound).

The wait was definitely worth it.

The stunts were incredibly well showcased. You just couldn't get enough. I was genuinely sad when the outro started because it was already over, but still, 8 minutes of high-quality editing and stunts. Strong community, and please, more of that!

greetings,
Siet

Bro is this a dream or what? I couldnt even imagine how awesome this video would be, its simply beyond words. It never ceases to amaze me how people still raise the bar for stunt videos, its incredible. Thank you Lex and everyone involved in making this video, you are awesome ;D!

I owe you a big thank you Lex for continuing this project. This was really an amazing production and I felt somewhat proud to still have my name attached to it (however my contribution to this part is marginal). Fun fact, I don't know if it had already been told earlier, but it was Promagic who came up with the title of the video, shoutout to him as well!
This editing was really next level, full of colours and dynamics that reminded me of Kacknase, Pmarci and Artifex, it's no wonder you paid tribute to them at the end of video. The songs were strong as well, they helped create an ever-building atmosphere, especially the first one, you could have used that song in the second part.
Stuntingwise it was great, good mixture of technical stuff and bigairs. A navalbase landing is always a must in an old collab video as I see  :lol: The finishers were the best for me, that taxi boost literally to nothing is still jaw-dropping, also good job Lex for relanding Daksad's famous wallclimb, sad that you didn't show the whole stunt. Apart from this everybody did great, good job guys!
The outro was cool as well, it wrapped up the video nicely. I had a random thought like "okay, if it was the very last SA stunting video ever, it would be a nice send-off". Hopefully it's not the case and I hope you go on with this collab series, there is and always will be a need for throwing old stunts together as everyone lands some from time to time. Speaking of which, the quality of stunts here was so high, it shows that people still could land amazing stunts and if it was for this video only, then I would say the SA stunting scene is still thriving. For me it shows that finding and landing new stunts that hit a certain (very high) level has become hard and it's one big factor of the decline, not just us growing up.

The editing is far better than anyone would've expected. There's art aside from cam work and montage. My hats off for this beautiful work. Hell it gets even better when you watch this from a 4K television.

It felt like my failed attempt of Grescha's infy prec finisher from Backstage collab was just a filler compared to everyone else. My thanks to you for allowing me in. It's also first time for me to be in a SA video.

Great picks from people. Hope it gets future collabs

Lex, you already know my overall opinion, but as I said I want to write a more detailed review on this project.

Editing: I want to start with the minority, with some criticisms. The blur that you used is nice overall, but it feels like it's a bit too much, I think it could have been looked better, if you had used a little bit less. Same story with chromatic aberration (and probably with another preset or smth, bcuz the lens distortion looks the opposite way of how it should actually look like, especially at 2:33 it looks obviously meh). Last thing is that these black lines are like whuttt? (0:22 and 2:53)

Now the bigger part: Amazing camera angles throughout the whole video, well done! I loved like 95% of them, especially 3:58 is totally mindblowning just wtf, very inspiring, really. Nice motion at 2:52, the transition at 4:22 is fascinating, 4:43 is very clever, 5:20 is also exceptional and 6:38 is yummmmyyyyyyyyyy!!! Very smooth little zoom at 6:46 that was a nice touch as well. The work that you put in the camera work is insane, but you made the whole video even crazier with your art draws, just loved it, every one of them! Visually 10/10, colors were nice too. AND THEN 3D STUFF STARTED TO HAPPEN AND I LOST MY FUCKING MIND. Kudos man!

Songs: Didn't really expect songs like this for a throwback video tbh :lol: BUT! I loved both songs, even if they didn't have the throwback feeling at all hehe. Instantly on repeat btw.

Stunts: High quality, this was kind of unexpected as well. Everyone had good stuff, some classics here and there, didn't expect some of them like Lex's relands(Burnt ass finisher lol and all the mtb stuff), Vaca's barrack stunt (I didn't even know that it was old xd), Balsam's reland, Erney's reland, Insan's reland, ARS' infy and cabbie relands were very good as well, Innocence's relands and Sport's squalo reland.

I'm more than satisfied with this video and it's such a wtf moment because the stunts are old :lol: Much love for putting out such a high quality video, this is a gem right here! :wub:

I had to login to share my very valuable opinion. That editing was insane. Captivated me the whole way through. Lovely aesthetics, colors and effects. The Grescha Cabbie precision in SF is one I personally would never attempt to reland, but the fact you pulled it off is incredible. Very fresh spots that were relanded. Probably my favorite editing on a video together with D4rksh4doW's Order69. Incredible job to everyone involved, but Lex in specific with the mindblowing edit. Very well done, everyone!

Absolutely abused the living fuck out of those cam angles. Editing is through the roof on this one.
