You got some nice shots there, stabile and good colour. I guess that this is a “show what you can see” video with some random shots edited together. I did the same thing when I worked on a dive center in Thailand. I think that you can “use” you position as a videographer more and educate people about the Red Sea. If you would put together 3-5 minutes film about different coralgardens/dive sight and tell the viewer about what’s rare, common, and protected or special things to keep in mind.

About these videos… I don’t like the black fades between the shots, it doesn’t have a purpose, but that is just my opinion. The music doesn’t work for me either, it doesn’t give me the calm feeling I want when a view a UW film.
As I sad, this is my opinion, make up your own style and go with it. I just hope the “we” UW filmmakers take more responsibility and educate divers around the world about our environment that we work in. I believe that we have more influence on tourism then we think.

Good luck

Peter, do to my dial -up internet I'm unable to play your video clips, however, the still shots look great.
