I want feedback on technicalities of video making

http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=762306105757356254

just finished editing a promo vid for our local juggling society. Let me know what you think, any comments on editing, angles etc would be appreciated, what worked/didn't work? should there be more text? or more speaking? I want your feedback! smile

[note: it's still processing at the moment, should be properly available very soon]

Posted:Cool video! Only problem is the beginning, IMHO it doesn't start as fast as it could making it a less exciting video to start with. Just a thought.

Personally I'd say you could chop up the main guys intro talk and insert it in sperate slots, or just as voice overs so you can get to the "exciting" parts of the video sooner.
Also showing 3 types of gladiators as the first "what we do" might come across a little too competitive smile

Posted:Thanks for the feedback! Maybe a voiceover with music in the background might have worked? then I could keep the track and footage and not have to fiddle too much with the order of the video..

hmmmm...

Posted:try putting some of the 'look at what we do' at the beggging as a teaser to get people into the video, there is come cool stuff later on but some people may not persevere that long.

Also.. i agree with durbs, the main guy talking goes on too long, id cut most of what he is saying so it is just an intro to what cambridge circus is, let people who might be turning up find the details out for themselves.

other than that the music fits well and you get a nice vibe from the vid smile

a) What do you think?

b) Intro

c)exmples

I'd like like this:



b) Intro - Shorter, more pointing(straight).

c) Examples - More and without text over(bellow).

a) What do you think? - Nice!

d)outro
