1 VIDEO: 1 rider = 1 video-clip. The riders do have the option to remove/update/replace a video with a newer/better one during the course of the competition, however only one video per rider will be scored.
5 MOVES: Each rider can include a MAXIMUM of 5 jumps/moves in each edited video. (There will be no further judgement after the 5th move is shown/completed).
3 BEST: 3 scores count. The panel will judge the video-clip on Red Bull King of the Air Judging Criteria based on 3 best significant different tricks/jumps and general flow.
VARIETY: Variety in the jumps and move-selection is extremely important. Repetition of similar jumps (and/or tricks) could result in lowering scores.
TAKE OFF & LANDING: Each filmed trick shown in the video-clip must include the rider’s start, the execution and the landing. Make sure that take-off is clearly visible as well as the landing. If the landing is cut-off or removed it will probably reduce chances of consideration from the panel. (No take-off or landing = No score).
FOCUS: Do not split the video-clip/camera-angles at mid jump.The clip will need to show and follow the entire jump from take-off to landing. No slow-motion playback, regular speed playback only.
EDITING: No fancy editing required. Raw, unedited footage will also work. Videos do not need to be a masterpiece, all we need is to clearly see the potential of the ride and the value of the moves.
LENGTH: Max 1 minute. The videoclip can not exceed 60 seconds (1’,00”). We are not looking for long video clips (clip can be shorter but no further judgement after 59’’ seconds or after the 5th move is shown/completed).
FOOTAGE Must be uploaded to riders Instagram personal account with the hashtag #videocontestCDV, also tagging the event on the publication ( @cuestadeelviento_bigair ) and it must be sent with the inscription formulary as well.
OLD FOOTAGE: Footage must have been filmed in the past 12 months. No previous Red Bull King of the Air video clips or entry application videos (or part of previous event live streams) will be allowed.
