Hey all, I covered a Land Rover event a couple weeks ago and this is what came out of it. The client really enjoyed it but I wish I was able to get more footage of the featured car away from all the people, possibly on the beach :). Let me know what you think I love hearing feedback on things I could have done better to try at the next event, thanks!

This also was done with my newly built computer using DaVinci Resolve for the first time, still trying to fine tune color grading, but overall I'm satisfied with it.

Very nice footage and editing. I especially liked the beginning with numerous hints and vignettes before the guests arrived. The music was very dubstep which was cool for the intro and revealing the live statues. Piqued interest how you juxtaposed the traditional band instruments and oddly heightened tension. On the critical side, I was expecting something to happen, maybe with the statues or vehicle as you mentioned. The guests turned out to be typical Land Rover types rather than new or different. I know you did not invite them :). It would have been great if they were actors/models dressed to fit the mood and energy you created.

This is generally very strong with a solid style that will please the client. The main improvement would be reducing the shaky shots where you refocus while hand held. These shots are way too rough compared to the smoothness of your other work. Without a follow focus on a monopod or tripod, changing focus is far too sloppy-like the first shot of the RR through the window at the front. Intro graphics with the event name and date would help keep non-attendees more interested in watching the whole video. I also find that an interview with the lead client executive to narrate the purpose of the event adds alot to a regular event video.

Thanks for your comments. I agree with the follow focus, I do shoot on monopods/steadycams etc but it is tough to rack focus not having a fluid system like a follow focus. I know where my equipment fee is going towards for the next event :)
