Thanks for the feedback guys. The issue is definitely a complicated one, and the guy who makes the Hitler comment has some pretty extreme ideas and concerns. He is also the one who heads up this scholarship and decided to pull it for these kids. I think some of his concerns about schools are valid, others are a little out there. Take a look at the WSJ article under the Press section and you can see more about what he's concerned about. Thanks again for the input,

peter

Looking nice! Short, fast. The first 10 seconds could've been a
bit faster though. I liked the music the most at the ending, but
that's just my taste <g> Did they play that last part as well?
Cause I could probably use some nice guitar stuff like that for
a short of my own.

Trailer for local Search & Rrescue Team

Hi Everyone.

I just completed a trailer or a montage (not sure what you want to call it) for our local Search & Rescue Team.

It's a 6 mB QuickTime movie.

I would love feed back on it.

Hey Aaron! Looked nice. I was hoping for some moving footage,
but that wasn't available I presume. I thought the transitions with
the "fire" could be a tiny bit faster and the the rhytm near the
end started out nice but then missed the "beat" (so to speak).
I also really disliked the first transition after the text (the one with
the weird streaks -> that looked cheap, especially compared to
the rest of the transitions which where good looking!)

Nice!

An old little video...

This is pretty much a clip taken out of my full length video I finished a while back. I say pretty much because the only thing different is the animation in the beginning. The beginning animation in the full length video is alot better. It has a faster pace too it and is probably put together better than the last videos I recently made for the internet. Probably because i spent more time working on the full length. Anyways, enjoy...

I really liked a lot of shot composition in there. Beautiful shots
and ofcourse beautiful scenary. I must say I wasn't too fond
of how the voice over was flowing. It sounded a bit "weird" and
was almost expecting a "mister anderson!" somewhere in there.
Heh. I'm not sure if the line "we'll never know where we'll end
up" is such a good line to have? That might not give the confidence
that the participants will visit the best places?

Looked stunning!!

It was nice. Some shots started to look a similar further on in
the movie though. I liked the ending.

Thanks Rob,

Any chance I could get you to expand on "weird"? Do you mean stilted, too flat, over/under announciated? Was one section of VO better or worse than another? (The comparison would help me see where you're coming from.)

Do you have a lot of experience with audio? Was the compression okay? The voice capture?

I appreciate you being candid.

nice

Nice Trailer - However I did not grasp the subject, maybe am I a bit slow, but i could not see the why question. This is in no way critique of the trailer, which I think have nice shoots and great quality.

Visually I thought is was fantastic. Very, very impressive shots.

But, I was super distracted by the audio.

Here are my thoughts:

1. A few times a new cut of music starts up very strongly, then almost instantly is pulled down for the narration. I'd rather hear the music start softer if it's going to be pulled that quickly. Also, maybe have a bit more gain on it during the narration. There were many sections where I couldn't hear the music at all under the narration. That's not to say that there has to be music under the entire narration, but if you want it there make sure we can hear it.

2. Rob is right on with the "Hello, Mr. Anderson" thing. It's almost like a William Shatner impression. The best way I can describe it is it sounds like you edited together each word individually instead of it being a smooth read. There's too much choppiness and pauses in the narration. Needs to be more conversational.

Your website looks fantastic and I really did like the video. I think if you can smooth out the audio a bit you'll have a dynamite piece.
