Well done!

Really liked the editing style, the balance of interview, music and a kajillion cutaways made for very nice pacing.

I think the PCC video students are gonna' have some fun counting the cutaways in the next class. I'm telling them "Shoot more cutaways than you think you'll need. Then do that again, then shoot some more." This piece will help them believe, I think.

Nice shots too!

Thanks, Seth.

It was 100% volunteer, so I got the call a couple days before the actual event...though I've participated in past Wonder Woman Days as a comic fan and comic writer. I went into the day having no real idea what the "story" was going to be...the "cutaways" (or b-roll as I call 'em) BECAME the story! The interviews became voice-overs, the donated Moby soundtrack became the unifying thread and the b-roll defined the piece...the audience is supposed to feel like they are there, watching the details of WWD 2009 unfold.

That was my process, anyway. If it will be of any help to your students, poke around my YouTube site:

YouTube - zimfilm's Channel

and my website:

bricker-down productions

Last but not least, I taught at three universities before moving out here at going 100% into the field. Hats off to you!

Very well done Justin, you must have been very busy to get that many cut-aways. You did well to keep the limited space and action interesting at a good pace.

Wonderful stuff. Can't fault anything with it at all. So natural and down to earth with the feel of the finished item.

BTW, did you get Wonder Woman's phone number? She seems really nice.

No complaints, very nice clean storytelling. I have a FX7 and really love the way it works.

I'm sure that her invisible plane would come in handy. Though there are naturally some limitations, being invisible and all that.

Actually, I'll just stop there for a moment. :)

just the fact that you know WW flies an invisible plane means you're perfect for her.

sadly, i have no contact info...regardless of your invisible plane status!
