Well done video with some pretty slick shots in there! My critique would be to put as much into your audio as you do your picture. "Sound is half your picture" is a quote to live by. Not sure how you mic'd your interviews but I wanted better audio than what I heard.

Overall, great job.

Cool and completely fearless with regard to camera placement. :-)

Loved some of the slo mo stuff though the slide bit might have been a gnats too drawn out.

With Cetre on the audio. It might have helped to cover some of the remoteness of the interview audio by keeping the music going dropped right back in the background. Just a thought.

Otherwise a top class job.

Really a very nice piece you did for them! A little bit hallow on the interview sound, but that's what I do for a living, so I have to ding you there, but beyond that, a really nice job!

Some questions for you:

Did you place your Canon cameras in the fenderwells of that truck or was it a GoPro Hero? Please tell me it was a GoPro!

What mic did you use for the interviews? I'm assuming it was the camera mic because of the hallow nature of that sound.

Again, a really nice piece of work, you should be proud!

First off Very Nice job. But since you asked for C&C, here ya go. One I totally agree on the audio, Get the mic on them if at all possible. If you have to use an off body mic make it a shotgun and get it as close to your subject as possible. That will cut down on the hollow sound you hear. 2) Pick up the pace its about 30 to 40 seconds before you get to anything gripping. The shots are nice, but you need to get into the candy as soon as possible. 3) Pace your shots with your music. You have some great music to edit to with lots of beats. Make those edits hit the beats and speed them up. I like the super slomo shot of the truck in the power slide, but vary the shot up some couple seconds of normal speed then BAM< slow the Bam Fast... Get the idea?? Last) When you cut back and forth between footage and interview keep the music low but not so low. As you do a final mix, listen to it on a set of POS speakers. You may listen on 1000 dollar studio monitors, but the masses will listen as I did on the crappy speakers on my computer. The music almost vanished when i watched. Just some tip to help out please take them for what they are worth. Great job all around.


First step........ Take the lens cap off.

Thanks for all the 411! I appreciate that!!

Yes, that was a GoPro in the wheel well ;)

Slo Mo was shot on a T3i.

Now, for the audio.... =D

Yes, There is only about 3 pieces that were recorded and synched with a boom mic and a zoom. We ended up losing about 1/2 of the audio due to card failure so we had to use the sound on tape.

I really appreciate all the time put into the critique! Have an amazing day!!
