Thread: What do you think about this 15 second vid?

  1. Default What do you think about this 15 second vid?

    It's a bit of an inside joke, which is why I can't tell if the video matches or not. Because for me and all my cousins, it makes sense, we know the guy. But not sure if the viewer would take the message the same way. Would appreciate open feedback, thanks!

    Edit: also, what would be a good caption, instead of 'got motivation' that might work in context with this very short 15 second clip? Originally, I had some kind of 'got motivation' idea, but now I'm thinking there has to be something else with more of a punchline/kick.

    Also, is there anyway to edit ths better? First time I edited, it seemed okay. But after playing it back a few times, the length of time of the caption, and the way the clip ends, feels a little off balance

    okay, so i changed a few things. the first effort was very tame, and i'm really not sure what to think about this one. i think i'm obsessing over it, because it's one of the few random clips i found on my hardrive...so it's hard for me to throw it in the recycle bin..lol.



    so that's it, not sure what to think of it. i think its a little better than the first, but i know that doesn't say much. would appreciate feedback...hold on to it, or recycle bin?

    its a video of my cousin, and he can be lazy at times, so its meant to be a stab at him.



    EDIT: if its recycle bin, then it is...pls let me know what you think. this was a situation of taking nothing and doing my best to make it something...not sure if its enough though.

    I think if you know the guy it's funny. As for the editing I would bring in the words at about 25 seconds I always like a very short fade in unless you are looking for a sudden pop out. Then fade them out about 5-7 seconds later. I like the fact that the sound continues after the picture a little.

    I can't really think of a funnier tag line. I came up with Mr Motivator !
