What!!! Why?!!

"Certain" showed promise, some underlying meaning. "Dust" was just some special effects for no apparent reason. You aren't really going to go with that re-edit are you.

Infiniti FX 35 Commercial

This is a short commercial I did with my dad's FX while testing my new Canon XL2 that I got today. It's a little shaky because I'm not used to the weight of the camera, but I would like some feedback on the video. Thanks.

Here it is:

Once again, Thanks

Nick,

Like said before with your 20 min flight movie, Considering your time and effort
spent on tetsting your new XL ( congratulations ) utilising the test for
making an vehicle ad deserves a compliment.

I test my new cameras by shooting spiders and insects in the garden.

Your appetite for the industry as a 14 year old "moviemaker" will hopefully
inspire young and old.

Comment on ad / New vehicle,s don't leak oil on the floor.

Herman.

That's not oil. It's mud from the rain earlier that day that was under the car.

Nick, not bad. I see improvements since your last work.
That's all that you should ask of yourself, try and get better with every project.

You're young, keep at it!

Nice work,

Mike

I think the XL2 helped me alot with its much easier to use manual controls. Bad news though, I think that the Optura Xi is messud up. Maybee I'll buy a GL2 as a second camera once I get some more money from my projects.

"Finally" teaser

It's been at least two years since I've been here. I went through some financial problems a while back and had to give up DV for a while and sold all of my equipment to pay off some debts. Just this past January I started college and started riding BMX again. I got back in touch with a buddy of mine who also rides BMX (Chris Lukasz) and he has been working on a new video for the past couple of years. Problem is, he's a cop and works alot of hours so there isn't much spare time for him to edit. He asked me if I can help him out so that we could meet our deadline. Production is all finished so we are working in post right now. I'm doing the compositing and DVD authoring for him and I just made this trailer last night. The footage was shot on many cameras since this is his first video (started out like all of us on a cheap consumer camcorder). And, since alot of the older stuff from his first camcorder couldn't be reshot, it's being used in the video. Anyway, It's a quicktime file in Mpeg4. Tell me what you think about my first step back into DV.

Now all I need is a new camcorder for my own productions.

Very nice! At first I was going to ask if any of these guys can stay on their bikes, but then you showed both sides.

Some very nice angles and shots. Very nice editing too!

Liked the music as well.

Mike

Thanks for the compliments. It's just my friends and I who are riding in it. We did land most of that stuff that we crashed on, but not all. There were a couple things in there that just hurt too bad to try again. Needless to say, we're going to have a mean out takes section on the DVD! (those are sometimes the best part)

Not to say that you didn't do a good job in the technical aspect of the teaser, but the style of the teaser didn't make me want to watch the video. I think to have an effective teaser you need to have some of the best shots that you got, without revealing to much of the final product. Also to try to implement the videos "theme" into the teaser, even though most of action sport films are montages, themes still play a crucial role in making a video more effective.

For your teaser (note: these are my opinions) I would get rid of the second title and make a better titles for the "street meats" (create an actual logo) and the last title "finally". The second shot of the video, the back flip, I would take that out and cut in shots of bike tires riding by or something that is a little less revealing right off the bat; because the back flip shot is a nice shot, it would be more effect near the end of the teaser. Also cut out all of the crashes, maybe leave one or two, but all of them do not make for a good teaser. Then just cut it down to like a minute or so. Music was good and the riding after the crashes.
