New Demo Video

I just put a new demo video up on my website. Just thought I'd share with everyone.

Hi Adam,

I'll give you points for trying something different, both in the music (was that actually the Spice Girls?) and the editing style. I thought your effects really stood out and took away from the clip rather than drawing the viewer further in. The stills flashing to the music was a nice tough though. It also looked like plenty of the clips had pretty low contrast, so you may want to boost that a bit to give it some more punch.

I'm not sure if your looking for comments in any specific regard but that is what I noticed first when I checked out the clip.

Sorry if that sounds harsh at all, but I think honest comments will help much more than anything else.

i thought it was a fun, lively, uplifting demo - good job!

i agree about the low contrast, and also i would have maybe panned/zoomed (even if just a little) on all the b+w stills (as you do with the very last shot). You'll find it flows better with the energy from the main video clips

but as i say, fun to watch!

Hello Adam!

Sorry that I have to say this - I didn't like it at all.

All the people look very stiff and not too happy. The lady in the first close up even looks like if she is thinking 'oh shit - do I REALLY have to marry THIS guy?' when she is turning her head towards him. ;-)

I was missing more and happier people that know how to celebrate afterwards. I also think the look of your footage could be improved. As already said above, contrast, colors and sharpness are very poor, just like from a 300$ camcorder. And - the shooting angles are mostly boring and far away from the center of action, as well as some of the scenes look kind of shaky and nervous.

What I liked (but - will your customers also like it?) was the idea with the music.

Regards,

Oliver

I am not sure what happened with the color and contrast in the clip, most of the footage was shot with the SDX-900. For whatever reason when I compressed it to the flv for the web my saturation and contrast went away.
