Hey Allison, bang-up job considering you probably had limited footage to work with.

I though the white background parts were a bit bright, but they didn't look out of the ordinary. I think some of your cuts could be a but sharper, and (dare i say it) you could have sliced it up a bit more to make up the lack of footage.

Also, as a tip i would say label your clips with the start time of the song in the clip so you can sync them in the timeline. if the clip starts halfway through the song, label with the timecode of the song. if you involved ahead of time you can make sure to not that on the set for editing.

I'm glad your getting more involved in production and looking forward to your next video!

Thanks Jay! yep, you're right. should have made some more cuts to make up for lack of footage... it's funny that this was a 3 day shoot, would you believe it? the next video was a one day shoot and we got way more shots...

labeling the clips with the start time of the song is an interesting suggestion... i label them with a description of the scene but they pretty much are all the same - the whole song. i'll give it some thought tho, it might be able to be applied to my next video.. one thing i learned is to be very aware of what part of the video the clip you are filming is meant for. we didnt always get the the right part of the song playing and would sometimes yell cut before we got there..... luckily on the second video we did enough takes that i got the shots i needed but it could have been more efficient for sure...

i cannot WAIT to show my next video, thanks again for checking out this one!
