    A beautiful tribute to Sasha montage

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvj-l34W1-Y

    Made by a girl named, Diana. Gave me chills. Make sure your sound is on.

    The clips are nice, they show the best aspects of Sasha's skating and the whole thing is well edited. The song by itself is okay, but I really don't feel like it fits Sasha, or her mentality, at all.

    I think a lot of Sasha montages just simply aren't very good at all - the music makes no sense. It's all done by a bunch of youngsters on SashaFans, mostly, who just piece stuff together iwht no clue as to flow for the video matching the music (the lyrics or otherwise), the skater the montage is about, etc. I'm such an elitist. :chorus:

    Whoever Diana is, she made a beautiful montage of a beautiful skater.

    I thought the montage was well done, edited nicely and the creater chose beautiful shots. Definitely not the music I would associate with Sasha. She needs something more jazzy and fiesty, IMO!

    I thought it was well done and I actually liked the music choice... Sasha is very clear that she feels that she is a champion and gets sick of everyone questioning her champion qualities, so while I view her as fiesty and a touch arrogant, the music fits that obvious desire to prove it on the ice and to her critics.

    I do wish, however, that clips from Tat's black & white swan had been added... now that was the one Sasha program that almost made me a fan... such a beautiful program.

    (off topic... Lanie you are soo correct about the overall quality of most montages, alot just make you go "huh?")

    Make that two who think the same way (actually I would extend that to montages of all skaters...just NOT a fan of montages in general)...and I'm not even bothering to look at this one.

    To be quite frank with you I don't understand your post at all.

    Anyhow, from a technical viewpoint, montages are in my opinion difficult to do. You have to make the right edit at the right time and you're working with several clips. I know when I make photo video files finding the music is the hardest for me. I have to have the right music to feel satisfied. I think the person Diana did a very good job both technically and musically.

    If all of you who commented negatively about this montage, could you post some of the ones you did so we could compare as to the good/bad job you did.

    It's very artistic, Dee, and more interesting than reposting someone else's photos.
