    First off, hey guys! I'm glad you're checking out my thread.

    I'm a senior in high school, and in order to graduate I must complete a senior project. For my project I chose to produce a mountain bike movie highlighting New England and it's riding culture.

    I'm planning on having this finished in the next month or two - sometime this winter. I'm expecting to have a final edit between 25 and 30 minutes in length. The best part: for FREE. I will have it presented on the website for free in several sections.

    So without further ado, I present to you the trailer and the website. The trailer is on the front page (the only page) of the website, and may take a second to load, so please be patient. Wink

    DownEast

    www.downeastbikemovie.com

    Please tell me what you think of the site and video, suggestions, feedback, everything would be greatly appreciated to include in my project. Thanks a ton for being an audience!

    looking great man.
    the site & the movie.
    what I allways wanted in DH movies is to see different riders taking the same turns. just to see different style.
    keep on the great work.

    "down east" is an old New England term, actually.

    Looks great, hope to see the full movie when it's done!
