I wanna make a self filmed street edit this year to document my first full year back on a bmx after 10yrs off, I really like the idea of the challenges that come with the edit being self filmed, would give me more of a chance to get creative with it and have full creative control.

This would be my first edit I've done and will be strictly street, what do you guys think makes a good self filmed edit?
also if any of you know of any good self filmed edits I should av a look at for inspiration please let me know so I can check them out.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

alternate angles.. creative angles.. nobody wants to see an edit where all the shots are from the side or front... in editing you can always add stuff like zoom or just little things to give it more movement so that it doesn't look self filmed.. the trick is for it to be self filmed but not look self filmed if at all possible... umm dan foley has a few but im too lazy too dig them up... maybe later...

This is probably the best self-filmed edit that exists.

If done well it can look really good, but it's hard to do well.
