♦ Skyward 4 ♦
« on: October 09, 2021, 04:28:49 AM »

13 years later, the collaboration series finally has another chapter. Visuals like you've never seen before, set to a soundtrack guaranteed to blow your head off, showcasing some of the most badass taxi stunts ever thrown down by the best in the biz.


Sorry it's taken me so long to get this edit out! I had the vision in my mind and knew it would be a big task ahead, so getting the ball rolling took a fair bit of effort given my age and other priorities. But once I built up some steam I committed to the edit, and 3 months of hard work have produced the video you're about to see.

Absolute massive thankyou to Darkstar for his help along the way! The vision would not have been a success without him.
Also thanks to AllBeast for helping with SAiVC issues.

And remember, if you can, record your reactions! This video is nothing you'll have seen before, and I want to relish in your raw emotions  :happy:

Anyway, have at it stunt fans. Enjoy!

watching  :a-cheer: accidentally saw it on the database homepage and rushed here haha


First of all, that intro was amazing. That last shot into the Skyward 4 text where the taxi flies over the city was absolutely awesome but really the entire intro was.
The rest of the editing was great also, really enjoyed every moment of it  :D Soundtracks were on point, just how I would've liked it to be after seeing Skyward 3 so many times. Awesome work.

Stunting wise these were my favorites in order of appearance:
- Shamelessly plugging myself here but I found that spot because of what Oliver did in Eradicate and it motivated me
to find something somewhat similar. Found this very quickly and I just love how it worked out. Got denied twice
because the crane on the ship was just rotating above the prec and it made me fall off just barely.

- Haywire's SAiVC double boost because that was just awesome and I didn't know what to expect right until he flew
off again. Camera work added some mystery there!

- Dannye's boost through the building onto the beach rooftop club building thingy, awesome find.

- Oliver's SAiVC boost2prec, small and nicely executed.

- Zero's boost2triangleprec on that high roof.

- Sheeptea's boost at 5:36 near the VCN building. I did it from the other side in Dreamtime but yours was better
executed and a nicer way of doing it in general. Nice one.

- Fckr's boost to the bridge prec at 8:11, looks very cool and probably pretty hard as well to stick.

- The grind from Max down the bridge was pretty clean, liked that. Did something similar in the credits of Lucidity if I
recall correctly but that was an accidental fluke and very poorly done.

- Turbo's finisher. Might not be some high precision somewhere but that landing looks terrible to have to stick. Good
job on that one for sure!

There were some oldies like Oliver's first boost (done by MtS in Magnum) and two boosts from Haywire but overall that's a low count for such a long video in general. I have to say though I did dislike Oliver's palmboost2prec where he stopped himself with the extra taxi. It's 2021 now and the distance wasn't very big nor is the precision that small. You're an excellent booster so to see you lame a new precision like that is a bit meh  :unsure:

Overall though, a very worthy new instalment after so many years  :jajaja:

I don't really have any say on the stunts, they're fucking cool despite having a few oldies like Turbo's SF grind (I think Kukiel did that with a Taxi)

Turbo's finisher is fucking poggers tbh
Daddy Dannye's boost through the hotel thing to the Gonzalez building is fucking astonishing
Plugging myself for the double grind (+1 for the skin) and the credits stunt
8:11 is fucking poggers and I mean really fucking poggers
8:35 insane in the membrane

honestly that has got to be the sickest visuals, the intro makes me feel speechless ffs it's just so fucking cool

The intro was really fresh but i felt like the main part was a bit underwhelming, it didn't live up to the novelty of the intro. "Visuals like you've never seen before" had me expecting more than a bunch of greenscreened overlays. With everything that was going on with the sky the rest of the game looked very dull in comparison, i wish you had gone for a more experimental look with some crazy colors. Camera angles felt way too plain and static most of the time, the flow just wasn't there. The song got very repetitive after a minute or two - Skyward 3's varied soundtrack was one of the things that made it a fun watch.
Some good stunts and clever finds, particularly enjoyed the stuff by Dannye, Fckr, Rainbow and Turbo

Beautiful video. H Creations never disappoints when it comes to visuals, and the stunts were hard hitting as well.

Awesome! Really liked the whole psychedelic feeling, that Intro was pure class!
Stuntingwise alot of great stunts from everyone, standouts for me by Rainbow, Skuller, Haywire and TurBo.
Seeing Dannye relanding that boost in SF under the bridge like in Amped 2 sure did bring back some good memories. :cc_detective:

so fuckin rad. intro was genius & really dope, especially loved the fisheye effect & angles, but that blackhole was genius as fuck. it's really cool to see how something like this was pulled off, great work! very refined camera angles & dope editing. the song isn't something that I would expect to necessarily end up working in 2021, but the editing really blended it together well

rainbow, turbo & fckr killed it as always, though everyone had some really amazing stuff

this was awesome! The intro was a particular highlight - both for the cool looking visuals, the camera tracking and transistions. It was so dynamic! I had an idea for a video sometime last year and in my head it looked a lot like the intro - glad somebody was able to realise it since my editing knowledge/skill is not up to this standard. Good effort!

Danny fckr rainbow turbo's action is my favorite

I didn't expect a sequel to this series. Luckily Jason let me see it. And you have a powerful editing technique. It is also a feast for the eyes. If there is the next one, collab wants me to participate. :rolleyes:
