Well, there is some nice footage there, but I think the music is mis-matched.

It wasn't 'romantic' wedding type music, way too disco/dance for the type of shots you have there, to me, it wasn't a good fit.

Another suggestion would be to actually create a 'still' in B&W or sepia when the photographer takes the photo and we hear the motordrive sound. Make the frame still instead of keeping it with the video, it's more effective that way.

Take them for what they are worth.

I just finished my Honda S2000 documentary

I wanted to share some Honda history with the "younger/newer" S2000 owners and also give something back to the owner community that I've been a part of since 1999.

We conducted some interviews within our group and after a month of off and on editing, I have the finished product ready for downloading. The file is 110 Mb and the video is about 16 minutes long

You can download a copy of the video here: http://satoauto.com/video/S2000_Life.wmv and I'd love to hear any feedback.

THanks Tunde,
Yes i use the flip version. infact i dun find the light loss very serious. the light loss actually helps during daylight so i could use lower f-stop on my camera.

i used a dvx102b and am surprised that even at +9db gain the image is still rather clean. anyway those that you see on the clip during the make up is most 0 to +6gain. and its pretty good.
unfortunately its no no for wedding dinner not enough lux.

Hi James,

Thank you for taking the time to give me feedback.

Yes I agree the music is unusual! but as its a showreel as opposed to actual wedding footage i wanted to try something different.

I have had comments from people who say they love it to people who hate it, so i think you will fall very quickly into one of these categories.

My own personal style leans towards a very romantic wedding video, I prefer the more romantic style, but many also hate it!!!!

In the main video I used the still option as you said, but in another part of the film, not this part. I guess it was just an editing decision at the time, but yes i agree,having a still has a nice impact.

Thank you again for your comments.

Well, I think they'll love it. Really well done. Great editing; use of stills, nice transitions, pacing was really good, good VO, it really all came together. The only thing that I would change would be the "A" camera framing on the interviews. It was just a little too wide for my taste, but that was it. I really enjoyed watching your film, nice work.

Thanks for taking the time to watch it. I agree on the A camera. I actually made two versions of this video, one 22 minutes for the people who participated in the video and the 16 minute version you saw. Since the 22 minute version would only be seen on TVs as a DVD I intentionally framed it wide.

For the short version (which would be seen on computers) I moved the framing a bit tighter. Naturally there was a limit on how tight I could make it with standard def. In retrospect, I could have moved it "just a smidge" tighter without losing too much resolution.

You guys do just fantastic stuff. To be honest, it doesn't often happen that I find filmmaking reels online that really feel intimidating to me but this is just awesome. You guys really have that beautiful digital not-film-but-damn-cinematic Superman Returns-ish look down. Only point of critique I can give is that it seems to go a bit overboard with commercial-style lighting sometimes, making it a little bit too unreal, but I guess that was a stylistical choice.

Looked pretty exciting. Can't wait to see more. Some scenes in the trailer reminded me of Starship Troopers.

Regards

What was it shot on? Film or HD? What camera? Looks a bit like another Alien film.
