    Default one minute movie

    My video club has a competition coming up, one minute movies. It can be a drama, documentary, holiday, anything.

    Ian and went down to Bournemouth for the weekend last month, the outing spawned two movies, one is finished (probably)

    It'a amazing how disciplined you have to be to get everything you want, well nearly, into a minute, but great as an exercise in editing.

    Here's the first.

    Watching and creating shorts are my best bits of video editing. Too many video are overly long - I personally think it takes talent to create a watchable short.

    Watching your video, I was half expecting some kind of "gag" halfway through - I guess the usual tone of the forums has dragged me down (I thought a comic still would have been used at least once).

    You got the timing just right and you kept my interest right to the end. I'm a bit unsure about some of the hard cuts, but that;s just my personal preference!

    Well I made it for the club audience, not this forum, so it needs to be more conventional

    Tho if I could think of a gag, no problem, they like a laugh too.

    Fascinating. I love informative presentations, I think you've done it well. Nicely varied transitions, too. Your in/out zooms and wipes were well chosen.

    There's a 'small-room' resonance to your voice that's hard to eliminate.

    I've read that surrounding the head with a small drape or curtain can absorb it - but haven't done it myself yet.

    Will you be posting the club response?

    Your voice is a good one for hosting the little short.

    It reminded me of a short i was shown yesterday at work by a guy who created a small docu about hand gliding. He had the voice over thing going too, which seems to work really well for this type of production.
