Re: Someone has to do it I suppose.

I have had this video as a favourite for a while now.....the backdrop of forest and mountain is Almost unbelievably stunning...i like watching how natural he is with his axe and saw as well as how at home he is on the boards......

Re: Someone has to do it I suppose.

I thought he posed about too much .. seemed to fart about with the axe alot without it being actually of any benefit . The saw kicked out enough powder to re lay a horse arena . The ' dramatic ' scenery was just too staged for me . Much better reality vids from the crazy canuck arbtalkers imo ( sorry to burst the guys bubble )

I'm not denying the scenery was stunning , the camera was placed perfectly and it was a well staged video . All i'm saying is i prefer the vids from the canadian arbtalkers it really is as simple as that .

If you wanted to be really picky it was a bit of a long beard on the hinge but hey, I would be really chuffed if I could do as neat a job . Don't think he posed at all . you need the axe to hang on to so you want it in the most convenient place . Good job I thought .

That just shows how it wasn't staged, he was thinking as he went, he was moving the axe out of the way, not outing it in position. It was there if he needed it.
I can only imagine how much hassle it must be working in those conditions, trying to carry your kit and packed lunch to and from each tree, hat falling off in rage of sweat and anger, all just for a few seconds of glory
I wonder ow many wedges he goes through

Re: Someone has to do it I suppose.

One of the lads I work with used to be a heli logger and he was telling me about the tough working conditions, and once he had his lunch robbed by a bear. wonder if that was on the risk assessment?
