Critique my video

I got a good feedback last time I asked my fellow Vegas users to critique a video for me so I'm asking again.

YouTube - Jackie "3 small words"

Please let me know what you think about overall quality and flow of this video. Fully open to any critisism or praise :)

Thanks in advance!

Hi Thomas,


I really enjoyed the video specially the colors. Did you use any preset? which frame rate did you use?

Thanks
Matthew

Used HMC 150's using "Spark" setting with some modifications, and WB preset at 3200k...

720/60P put onto a 23.97 timeline...

No color correction in post.

Thanks!

awesum Thomas, I like doing the live music too. The quality of your footage is great for low light.
Here's one I did on my own ( i wish i could hire people but.... too poor, lol ) a couple of months ago.
YouTube - DIE FOR YOU - Tell Me Girl
Every time I edit one, as soon as its done I see all the things I would do differently if I started again. The learning experience never ends.
PS. as Thomas said, other opinions are always welcome :)

Gerald, quality of your video very good if you did all those camera angles by yourself and that was a live show I'm stunned and amazed :)

- vocals a bit washed out though...

thanx Thomas,
yeah, the sound guy let me down on that one, I normally have a Rode NT4 as a room mic and a left and right from the mixing desk into a Zoom H4N, at that show I ended up with the desk audio being clipped before it even got to me, so all I had was the one room mic to work with.
Im still trying to work out the bugs but I think I can make it work with one guy and 4 cams for a live band, personally Id rather do more jobs at a lower price at the moment, at least until my cam and editing skills get a bit better.
cheers

Try making an extra audio track copy and use the EQ to cut everything to 1K, then put on another EQ and boost up with band 3 the 2000 to 2500k range..

Might bring the vocals up a tad...

thanks for the tip Thomas, I did one today,
YouTube - SUNDANCE KIDS - Solutions LIVE
with the vocals eq'd on a separate track and it does give you more control.
cheers mate :)

Much better on the vocals :)

Putting some effects on the Master bus, might help you out as well...

I PM'd you a link to a .veg that will give you some ideas for master bus effects that I use on live shows.
