A very nice looking piece. What is it for. It's well edited apart from a jump cut at around 4:00 mins.
Apart from putting a Green tint on it what else did you do ?

Sorry i didnt know
thought the green tint was over done in many places.... even hair looked green ! nicely shot and edited but cried out for some ambient sound .... the crackle from the fire, horses hooves on the soft ground general chatter between people ....
i know at these events theuy usually stage battles would be nice to get some of that action in there.
I'd like to know a bit more about this film. Did you put the whole thing together or was this from a Roman Re-Enactment Society's day out? If the latter (which I suspect) you've done a great job of making it look like a scene setting piece for an epic (maybe the sort of scene setting that runs under a long list of credits at the beginning).
I agree with enc about adding some ambient sound to give it a bit of life and Midnight about the jump cut - but I saw other shots which felt more like jump cuts than clever edits. For example the bowl making at the beginning felt OK - it was clear we were sompressing time through a process, whereas the cut at 0:27 neither compressed time nor were the shots different enough to avoid the feel of a jump cut.
There are elements of careless editing. The shot from 10-13 secs is not ideal in that it is a zoom out followed by a tilt (I'd suggest one or the other in one shot) but then we see the beginning of another zoom out just before the cut into the next shot. There are also several changes of exposure left in the edit: 0:30 and the banner at 3:46 are two examples.
Funnily enough these would probably be much less noticable if the film was just left as a recording of events and not trying to look "cinematic" - where everything is so damn perfect.
I love some of the shots - the close-ups of the hands weaving and doing the pottery are great and there's some fine detail in there. You seem to have an eye for a good shot. But there's also stuff which shouldn't have been included and I thought the look rather spoiled it. Sorry!
