    hey, 30 seconds in, it seems like another went right on top of the one that was building up, i dont know if that is a song altogether but it bothered me, otherwise I see nothing wrong with it. Nice job, hard to point out what editing you've done since its of music videos etc.

    lol I guess I should be flattered because aside from song 2, song 4 and song 5 (no i in threesome, heinrich manuever, mammoth) the others arent official music videos to those songs-i used different music videos (same band, previous albums) and tried to dub the footage to the lyrics.

    With No I in Threesome I reversed some footage around before the singing begun, I had to speed up and slow footage down for Heinrich and Mammoth was cut around and censored I guess. At the beginning, I used a snippet of an interview where the lead singer's recommending to new fans that if they were unfamilar with their work to check out thier third album before the others etc.

    I guess the idea was to give a snippet of each song so it would be like a preview to the album, alongside some visuals. Got the snippet idea from amazon.com.

    I agree, it is hard to know what editing has been done where unless one is a fan of the band themselves and are sorta familar with the footage.

    Seriously impressed.

    I thought that the footage suited the music well and the pace of the editing also fitted the performances. Did you direct the sequences? If so you must be very proud of what you've achieved. There's a lot of nice camerawork in there as well.

    I dont own a video camera so i didnt shoot the actual footage-i dont own any of the footage but i edited it around.

    lol its funny cause people who arent familiar with the band think i used music videos and cut them but most of those videos arent music videos for those songs.

    I did alot of editing and used different effects but i've always liked subtleness more instead of flash and obvious cuts and editing. But I guess with subtleness people dont notice what you've done or what you havent done.

    Thank you heaps for your kind feedback, I appreciate it

    I'm confused aswell, are you saying you've taken already shot footage and edited it to someone else's music and you've managed to hit the beats? Where's the work in that?

    Ouch.

    Maybe I'm posting these videos to the wrong forum...I'm guessing you guys do this professionally. I'm a medicine student so I just edit videos around as a hobby. Alot of people on youtube make fan videos to either different musicians/bands or make fan videos to tv shows or movies etc. Thats what I did as well. I dont know why you guys find that so hard to grasp. I keep repeating it is not my footage. I wish I could film an international rock band but hey.
