NEPENTHE, by ZeRo
« on: May 10, 2024, 09:42:31 AM »


Aaaand after 3 years he's back with a "redemption arc" in the form of a new ZeRo solo. You are gonna like it.

ZeRo mentioned he wanted the video to be less on effects and more on cinematic angles and colors and with an
ambient type of song, and this is my first time doing videos like this. Big shouts to him for directing and sharing his creative idea.
(Note: Some stunts in the video can be hard to see but rewinding the video will be necessary)

Fun fact/spoiler: the reason why Black Moth Super Rainbow is used in the video is because 20 years ago today
"Start a People" was released. I even remixed one of their later songs (see 'chapter 3' of the video) so let me
know if you liked it. I went from a fromjoy/loathe route hence the pitched down guitar notes. I've been
busy working on music lately hence the last song being a remix by me, so why not use it in a stunting
montage? Anyway, I really do hope you like the song.

What an interesting experience, the grinds on this video were off the charts, ZeRo keeping it real all the way to 2024.

Huge thanks to Ezraph for taking on the editing job and doing something wonderful, you're the best dude! :wub:

While these cinematic camera angles are amazing, some of the stunts can be a bit hard to see, like the freeway 7x ledgegrind combo or the ledge to bounce to double grind following that, so here are some raw clips I recorded for Ezraph to preview my stunts (so raw I didn't even use Freeplay :ninja:): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSINvik6u0Q

Also if anybody wants to take a look at any of the replays, just hit me up! :jajaja:

Great video, good creativity on all those grinds !
The editing was also great even if the camera angles were a bit too much

Fabulous work, teeming with fresh and neat ideas and executions that were so aesthetically pleasing in the format that they were presented [camera work complemented them real well]. My favorite type of stunt had a heavy representation which is technical combos - involving grinds and grabs optionally. Lost the double grind combo where there is a stuckie inbetween a fence and a wall wedged between the two grinds - high praise for that one, elusive as any.

Really liked the washed out feel. For some reason it just sits nice with VC.

The polebump to grind, VC double with the wallride between, curb to wallride to ledge, and the MAG were probably my favs. Nice natural spots done well.

This is definitely your best video ever edited Ezraph. I always adore atmospheric edits with post-rock vibe and it's very rare nowadays. Feels like otherworldly.

Stunts were absolutely incredible and i have no favourites. Sick job Zero  ;D

Here's some raw opinion, get ready, dont feel butthurt too much, it's what I think
The stunts overall were fucking great, amazing ideas all around, but I dont trust you man, after you modded previously and even admitted to it. Even on the raw footage (lmao raw footage released right after the edit, this shows how unwatchable most of the stunts from the edit were, god damn, am I glad Ezraph was "busy with college" when I asked him to edit my solo), you could see lags and strange behavior - from the raw footage 0:15, 2:03, 2:08, 3:03  (the latter you could obviously see something strange at the bump - invis cols again??)

Do you really stunt with cut out tree textures in LC? I remember couple of years back Art was blamed for "modding" his SF bridge invisible collision finisher just by making that collision visible, and now you see similar shit here.

Other than that good job, if (at least), some of the stunts were clean.

E: And I can't believe Ezraph actually placed some japanese girl talking while you were showing the "MaCi RIP" outro... Im just speechless dude. Why not fucking Metallica or something from his own album??? EVEN AUDIOLESS WOULD BE 100X BETTER! Not some autistic weaboo anime shit, dude, really dumb move  :neen:
