There are too many stunts to name that were really great. I will have to rewatch it to point them all out, but Artifex, Bart, Viper, Legend, Joako, Biel, Xaero (and for sure many others) rocked!

The editing was top notch as always. I loved mainly the first part CC and I'm curious how you did this camera at 7:45.

Glad I landed at least something. Good job all!

Okay, very VERY late on this one, but it took this long to finish watching the dang thing!

What the hell can I say? I don't know that I've ever seen a vid this polished. Every single frame of it looks utterly gorgeous. I realise that SA can be thanked for a portion of that (that game does look lovely still), but so much of it is down to (I'm assuming) the vid's editor. I lost count of the number of gallery worthy shots and pans. I'm fairly familiar with SA and it's environments, but a lot of the vistas on show here make them look soooo much better. Transitions between stunts are also just tremendous, making me believe that the editor is a burgeoning (or possibly established) film maker. I don't wanna overstate the look of this video, but I got a very distinct Denis Villenueve vibe - really, it's that impressive. Always appreciate also when stunters abandon all sense of ego and let everyone know just how awful their voice acting talents really are - I can relate, trust me. Cut scenes were nicely handled as well. Now I wish that SA had a 'Ring' side mission of some sort. If I had only one minor, barely worth mentioning complaint, I would say that some (only some) of the stunts are kinda robbed of their impact due to cinematic/wide camera angles being used initially, rather than after the first showing. However, that's just a personal preference, being an old timer.

I can't comment on the video, of course, without mentioning the choice in music. I'm guessing this is a fairly contentious element of the vid. Frankly I was left kind of on the fence regarding the music. On the one hand, I love any vid that doesn't blast my eardrums with death metal (or whatever you kids call it these days) or screeching lyricists that are barely comprehensible, or even incomprehensible. And yes, I realise I've been in vids that would fall into that category, so the irony's not lost on me. The music is melancholy and sombre, which I guess fits the theme of the vid - the end of an era for you guys. On the other hand, it does sort of clash with the high octane nature of stunting in general. It would be the perfect music for a vid where the only stunts were being done in Baggage cars and Caddys. That being said - it was at least unique, which wins a lot of my points in my book. Also, any vid that manages to incorporate Talking Heads into it's soundtrack wins +20 smiley points!

Now, naturally, the stunts. It's not surprising that this vid was in the works for 3 years (I remember getting antsy about Lagoon, which took just under 1 year), because the finished product is very obviously the result of a group of guys who weren't happy with 'close enough'. It's a lovely showcase of what you can do in SA that you can't in VC, so kinda throws the whole 'SA stunting isn't for me' outlook right back in my stupid face. One could say that it's just another vid with grinds, bumps, taxi boosts and vehicle bumps, and yeah that would be accurate - except for the 'just another vid' part. It's a hell of a lot more than that. Everything had something else. I was exclaiming 'Woah!' three times in one stunt on numerous occasions (the backwards wheelie down the dirt road was a particular favourite). The level of dedication and time spent to get this last hurrah as good as it can possibly be is (to me) an indication of a tight-knit crew and a good bunch of friends. And being that that is what this whole thing (stunting) SHOULD be about gives this vid an extra +20 smiley points.

Now that's +40 smiley points! And I don't just hand those out willy-nilly. Absolutely deserved. A great vid. A great farewell. A pleasure to behold. Congrats, guys, and I hope that, above all else, you enjoyed your time with the game, and with each other.
Thank you in the name of the whole crew. This means a lot!
