Criticism is appreciated, I prefer it over compliments! Anyone?
Looks very tasty, the exterior part has a lovely dreamy feel, maybe it's just the look isn't overly contrasted. I like me some pastel tones and silky smooth picture. I, for one, very much enjoyed it.
Thank's Vadim! I really appreciate having my video's be called tasty!! haha.
Anyone else? A critique maybe?
I'd like to see more of the slomo shots - just one leaves us almost confused about what we saw. You can tease for a while, and that's good, but later it's often better to give people a better look, to deliver on the tease. The day shots are less magic, and less flattering to the band, In particular when the drummer fixes his glasses he looks a bit uncool/insecure. It should be cut out.
The slo-mo shots outside look less cool - there is not enough interesting motion - watching someone strum a guitar against a blue sky background doesn't feel right and isn't that interesting slowed-down.
The last shot holds way too long, it makes them look silly to ride on the truck for so long a shot, and it gives us time to say "look a skinny guy and his fat buddy". Generally from-the-back shots of guys for long periods look silly in a hurry. Leave the butt shots for hot women. People sometimes don't think about this stuff but it's true.
I know you don't want praise, but generally it really is pretty good - you really are good. People either get music video or they just don't. You do.
Hey Rob, thanks for the feedback, it's all very helpful! The big compliment is also much appreciated!
For some reason I've always liked those shots where the big stars fuck up (drummer adjusting glasses) or look average (couple hicks on the back of a truck) especially in comparison to the crazy slow mo epic looking shots... I think it's both a little funny, and nice to see a shot reminding you that they are just average people like us too... (not that we're average at all ;)
I think the slo-mo shot you disliked was the first one where one guys on the piano, and one is on the drums... it is a little out of place I agree because it's just a single slo-mo shot by itself. Thinking about putting the regular motion drummer shot there and saving the slo-mo indoor shot for later...
Thanks again for both the critiques and compliment!!
