    Hey guys i'm back with another video this time the camera work is a bit better its not shaky so you can watch with no problem. The lighting was the only problem since my lightbulb blow out right before we started but anyway let me know what you think.

    Good advice #1 - Go out and get a new 'lightbulb'!

    Good advice #2 - Devise a plot!

    Good advice #3 - Write a script!

    Good advice #4 - Keep trying!

    I agree with Skodster points. It is good that your camera skills are improving, now make a little scripted short to learn and improve more.

    That really was better. As a fighting pop vid goes that was pretty good.

    Your editing skills have clearly improved as that was cut nicely to the music, and I liked the shots of the guys heads.

    Filming wise, well I dont feel sick and there were a few different views but maybe could have had a few more alternate shots.

    The fighting looked good too, I hope those 2 dudes were not too bruised !

    Biggest negative from me - Lighting, if I was kind I would say atmospheric but the right of the screen was too dark and the cieling lights loose much of the detail in the fighters.

    Hint for lights on the cheap, I use builders lights, site lights we call em in the 51st state, ususally 500 w halogen with a crummy stand but very cheap at 30 quid each and they do the job.

    Sounds: Some fighting sounds would have improved impact. It is great fun to add these in after (called foley) . Lots of sounds are on the web if u look, I use www.findsounds.com . Alternatively you can mix in some of the real sound but it is unlkikely this will be any good.

    Keep it up geezer and in a few weeks you are going to have this film making malarky well sussed.

    Hey thanks i could really use these lights becuase that light bulb system isn't there so i can't just replace it. I mean if i could i would have replaced it a long time ago. But i bought the lights so when they come in i'm going to use them. Thanks for the sounds i'll use them for future videos. On this on i was just trying to do movies to the music so i would look cool.

    You need to devise a plan than act on it. I see no real effort just two people "play" fighting. I can see you have the creative no-how but it dose not show in your work. Go to the IFC channel if you have it and look at the short films. Get an idea, plan it then act on it. Its easy to put something together quickly but why not do something that you can be proud of.

    this was much better than other stuff i have seen from you guys.... i think this is mainly because the sound was constant and the shots were all in the same room so the lighting was the same and the camera was not shaking! it was pretty boring (i hate wrestling!) and as far as editing goes it was nothing special but it was simple and therefore worked much better than 'the insano show' - that was just crap.

    getting better though!
