I love that the forum software has chosen "tight rope walking" in Bobs post to place the advert.
I'm sure the producers of this video did a full H&S assessment before any filming took place. NOT. I suppose showing the "fails" and the wins of doing the ticks highlights the dangers for younger people to take note of.
I liked the opening title, I didn't like the dark shots between 16-24 seconds. If you're going to do night shots. Either get some lights OR find a better lit place with street lights OR adjust the camera. One thing you should learn to do as the editor is to take out the rubbish shots. It lowers the quality of the video. You seemed to have a bit of trouble with the focus on the "under the underpass" shots around 1:30. Again take a look at these and cut the bad shots.
Most of the camera work isn't very good in that it is all taken from the side, full length, head height, with a couple of exceptions like at 3:20, I liked that shot it was face on lower to the ground (different), this is the key to making a better video. Get a good variety of shots from different perspectives, long shots, mid shots, and lots of close ups. Shot from below, above etc..... I hate to say this to a crew as accident prone as you guys BUT try and get the camera man in with the action. Follow this advice and your videos will be ten times better.
Ignore this advice and I will banish you into the bowls of Hell for eternity for wasting my time writing this review.
Good luck with your next video.
