    Default new vid ('04 footage)

    i was bored, so i made a vid. i made it using footage from '04, basically, to try new editing tricks and stuff. lemme know what you think. if you think it sucked, i don't care how bad it sounds, give it to me, and tell me how i can improve.

    thanks!

    You have some very nice photography there. You also have soem clear ideas about how to apply effects., and very nicely too on occasion.

    However, when watching this I couldn't help feeling that the montage had that 'Look what I can do' feel about it rather than composed with a specific purpose. I guess this is more evident because there the music track seems to have been just added. Try and edit to the beat and tempo of the music, you will be surprised at the difference this makes.

    Also for me, at this resolution, the closing credits (whilst nicely composed) didn't quite work becuase the video was too small.

    Overall though a good effort. Just need to be a bit snappier with the editing and a bit more planning to the composition.

    Well done!

    i thought that was phat, at the start it went well with the music too and the girls in the vid were a very nice touch, overall a quality video but nearer the end it didnt seem to match the music as well.. just my opinion..

    thanks for the help purejammy. i did lay the music track down first, and built the vid around the music. if you watch each clip, the rider either hits the wake on beat, or lands on beat, and sometimes both.

    No offence intended. You did say ...

    Also, the photography was very good, camera work was very good, but the editing to the beat was a bit inconsistent. As I said in my first post a good effort.

    Well done!
