Pretty much the final edit for this short music doc - if you see anything that just sticks out like a sore thumb, please say (after a while you just stop seeing things).

Thanks for watching or commenting...

Nice images and feeling, but in my opinnion it could be shorter quite easily and it would back it up even better short story! :)

So I would cut the graphic elements (which are nicely animated) a lot quicker. Fasten up those like two times. There is not much text so those can be read easily. Speech could start already during these animated graphics (the comment about Briston) and the actual thing could start from the topic "how did I start in the business". And that topic should start around 30-45sec imo. Then it would be way more compact and effective start!

Now the actual story begins at 2:40 which is quite a bit of waiting... And if you feel like you don't want to lose all those b/w images cut in the beginnig because of shortening the beginnig use those during the beginnig of story. You can easily cut to those from the studio images mix&match those.

Well just my thoughts but wanted to share those. Keep up the good work! :)

Cheers Teemu, thanks for your comments. You've made some very good points all round & I did have a faster version of titles, which i was told was too quick - he wanted to highlight the music & his story in equal amounts, so there you go.

I had also started the voice over parts a lot earlier, over lapping the titles, but it didn't really work.

There's so much compromise when dealing with a band - its 3 mins longer than what i originally intended/wanted. There was 5hrs of footage (not all useable), 3hrs of interview (most of it rambling nonsense) & he changed his mind about what he wanted from the doc a few times (I still have hair, but barely).

But the client [nearly] always knows best & certainly gets what they want - they be the ones that are paying.

Thanks for watching & your comments

Sounds familiar a bit too familiar actually... But I tried to be as responsive and "first tuch" sharing as I could if you know what I mean.

I still hope you can share these and other comments "outside of the circle" to your client after you gather some. That is only possible way to get some true comments because you and your client are too much into that project anyway. Hard to be true for it anymore.

I can believe that you had totally diffrrent version of the video before, as you said "client is always right" as long as they are willing to pay us :d

Don't get me wrong, your comments were spot on & were exactly my thoughts/misgivings - it should be a lot lot shorter.

It is nice that people do take the time to comment.

But hey, they've got to get people to watch it, not me & if they're happy...

      Hey guys,
      I have a SpeedBooster for the Pocket and the Micro for sale, Canon EF lens version.
      Asking price is 450€
      I'm in Italy and I can ship to Europe for fair prices and even WW if needed (postal or UPS).
      BTW I also have a brand new Wooden Camera cage for the BMMCC plus the Wooden Camera PL Mount Pro kit for it in another thread

      Hey all, I'm looking to shoot a narrative short film with controlled lighting early next year and am thinking about shooting it on my original BMPCC...
      I know, I know. No 4K, terrible low-light, and horrible battery life. But if 1080p was fine, controlled lighting throughout, and an external battery solution, is it better for me to use the original and cancel my 4K pre-order? I could use the money saved to pay for an additional cine prime/actually pay actors a decent wage...
      What would be the advantages in this case of using the 4K over the original?

      Great condition lens + micro four thirds adapter. Used it on my blackmagic micro cinema camera. Lens is made for 16mm sensor. 
      $315.00 USD.

      Nippon Kogaku Japan Cine-NIKKOR 25mm F/1.8 wide angle lens. Close focus up to 2 feet / .6 meter.
      Nippon Kogaku Japan Cine-NIKKOR 10mm F/1.8 wide angle lens. Close focus up to 1 foot / .3 meter.

      Bought on eBay, used with C-Mount to Micro Four Thirds lens mount on Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. 
      Optically in excellent condition. Inside no specks of dust, haze, oil scratches that I can detect. Clicks work as expected. Focus is smooth.
      Cosmetically clean on outside. Very good for its age. 

      Close focus up to 2 feet / .6 meter. Very light weight, and tiny size. Smallest lens I've ever owned. Paired with BMMCC or BMPCC this makes a fantastic combination. BMMCC / BMPCC is super 16 sensor so I didn't need a speedbooster, and no vignette. I would expect to see vignetting on any sensor size larger than super 16.

      EXTRA
      Comes with a 40mm Switar C-mount lens, Metabones MFT to C-mount adapter.
      SELLING as a complete set. Asking $570 OBO.

      Hi,
      I've got a BMMCC for sale. I've only used it three times.
      It comes with 6 batteries and a charger, and a Smallrig cage.
      Another equipment I'm selling is the Metabones Speed Booster for BMPCC.
      Both are in great shapes. No signs of use on the Micro, and the optics of the metabones is perfect.
      Price is 750 euro for BMMCC and 400 euro for Speed Booster.
