«A good potential film that can use some work in the editing room
The upsides: no acting is ever half as real as people just being people in real life while a camera is filming them. This makes this video a rich source material.
The downsides: not really downsides so much as things you can improve... the first thing must be to balance the audio levels. The music tracks you've added are way too loud for the actual sounds recorded by the video camera. as a result the viewer has keep playing the volume up and down which naturally drives people nuts. I'd recommend changing the narration of the story from subtitles to actual recorded voice. This will allow you to spice the descriptions a little bit. Also, remember that some viewers have no clue about what they're seeing and explanations would be welcomed. they don't need to be in depth, just to give the uninformed viewer the general idea. I think you could cut half a minute off the slideshow in the intro as a slideshow of stills really won't make much sense to anyone not familiar with band members. This may be just me, though, and I suggest getting a second opinion on this.
all in all, you're doing a good job here. Make me wish there was Film Studies class when I went to school...
4 Stars, keep up the good work»
