    Default Sailing action video


    Would you like to sail with me?

    Nicely put together although I'm personally not a fan of the letterbox format, especially when streaming.
    To be hyper critical, is it just a tad too long with one or two slightly wobbly shots near the end that could well come out?
    Was that a Short Sunderland flying boat? I didn't think there were any still flying!

    I thought this was really gorgeous for a while and then, I'm sorry to say, I got bored. I guess the subject just didn't do enough for me to just watch and listen.

    Apart from looking good it didn't tell me anything and perhaps I really need a narative (not a narration) to keep me interested for even 3.32.

    A shame because I thought it was very well shot and lovingly edited. Unlike Ian, I quite like the letterbox format and in particular I like the split screen stuff (which only really works in a piece like this as it's impossible to concentrate on the content of both windows)

    I didn't like the wipe transitions. To me they cheapened the look of the vid, though this is very much a queston of personal taste.

    some fantastic footage captured in difficult conditions ...
    liked the colour grading but struggled with the split screen mainly due to the fast pace of the piece (but, also i have a slight hangover )

    nice work.

    I mirror Tims comments, some beautiful shots certainly but a bit lacking to keep attention. Maybe would work perfectly for a yacht sales website or something? Where the target audience would naturally be into sailing and would be able to appreciate it more?

    Thanks you for all reply...

    @IanA - Short Sunderland flying boat... no it was Canadair.
    @TimStannard - next time it will be shorter for sure...
    @enc - yes, I will use less split screen and more normal shoots...
    @clay_9 - yes.. this is specific movie for people who sails....

    for sure, I need more practice...

    thx to all for comments..

    I find it difficult to comment on this movie as I can't get over the jealousy of your life style.
