    Default Just Starting Out Doing Video Editing Would Like Feedback

    Hello all, I am new to the video editing world and would like to get better at it. I did a video for a group at my college, and liked the process. I would like to learn more about it and if possible let you all view it and give me feedback on it so I can better myself.
    This is a link to the video I chose to edit.

    I'm guessing you're not interested in the filming side of making videos just editing ? One thing that hits me straight away with this is that you have put lots of effects in it, to try and make it interesting. This is not the way to make a video interesting. Content, narrative etc. is what makes a video interesting. Learn this early on and you will soon be making better videos.

    The scrolling lyrics really didn't work. The font was uninteresting and it looked like you had been too lazy to bother to do them properly. What's more they couldn't be read against the colour footage. Contrast that with the occasional captions which flashed up - they were eye catching, "urban" looking and punchy. Plus what Midnight said about the effects.

    Thanks a lot for the replies. The scrolling lyrics were a requirement, I didnt want to do them either but they wanted me to. I knew they would kill the video's overall look. As far as the effects I do see what you're talking about now that I really look at the video. Thanks for the input and feedback.

    Ahhh. The age old story of compromising because of what the "client" wants. Such is life
