My videography business promotional film: feedback please!

Recommended Posts

Guest

I'm starting to set myself up a small videography business: just a one-man-band doing local stuff - community group promos, weddings, etc. I'm still working on the website (www.lintelfilms.co.uk) and have just finished the 2nd draft of my promotional film. I'd really appreciate your feedback on the film. I don't mind at all if you are brutal!

Lovely shots Matt, it all looks really nice but make it shorter - 2mins max, as people these days just don't have the patience to sit through 4mins.

 

Thanks very much. Yeah I was afraid someone might say that! :(

Really nice :) That closeup of the eye is insane. What camera/lens was used?

Thank you. G6 with Micro-Nikkor 55mm f2.8 AI-S (and extension tubes I think). Can't remember if this shot was in Ex-Tele (3x MFT crop) or not. Also video monopod was necessary as focusing was done with tiny movements forwards and backwards (rather than using focus ring which though really nice wasn't subtle, fast  or stable enough.

 

I might upload a closed caption file that lists camera and lenses as the video plays...

very nice shots, I liked it a lot, keep sharing.

Thanks!!!

Could you please tell us more about your equipment?

Thank you :)

 

I'm going to try to find time to add closed captions showing gear info as the video plays. As you can see from the top of the thread tags, a lot of different stuff was used ...

bravo matt! i love the idea and the words and the imagery

 

now for the bashing

 

1. put your best shots at the first minute of the clip (04:06 for example)

2. make a shorter version 2  minutes

3. i dont like the people talking, i would omit them (or just keep their voices without their faces, to put what goes on and shorten it)

4. music is good at the beginning but then its too melancholic, (for commercial reasons it needs to get more upbeat)

5. i know you are in the UK, put more sunlight in (some golden hour shots in there) its very blue, and cold tones tend to make us pull away again im talking business!

p.s. dont hate me! i am just saying these with love

I guess i am going to be the brutal one...

For a demo showing your work to get more work i was expecting it to grab me right away and make me want to keep watching with excitement of wow this is the guy i want to shoot something for me.

But i felt like it was very down beat and slow more like a camera demo showing basic shots of things and very non exciting.

Just my point of view but i feel a demo of someones work to show to soon to be customers should have a huge wow factor not only the video but audio to.

      Hi,
      I have a brand new unopened Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k that I bought from B&H. Still in it's wrapped plastic seal from B&H so obviously it includes everything that comes with it. I am thinking/considering going a different route with my camera gear and looking to gauge interest if anyone is looking for one. 
      Let me know if you're interested.

      Amazing cage with built-in follow focus wheel perfect for the a7s, Canon and Nikon cameras. It's in used condition but works great. Redrock are a quality company with excellent customer service. I've found this cage to be exceptional as a one-man-band.

      Well, it’s been 8 months since I completed this and almost a year since I promised @mercer to post it once completed

      I don’t really know what to say about this, it’s my first short and I wanted to try this medium after trying music, photography, drawing/painting and all sorts of writing in order to figure out myself and my depression.

      It took me months to complete due to my mental state and lack of energy and I intended to post this sooner, but life can be a little too much sometimes. Or very often in my case.

      Even though it was the hardest creative thing I’ve done in my life, (despite having a background or experience in most of the separate artforms that make up a film) I was really lost in the entire process and I developed love/hate relationship to it. I wanted to quit all the time when I wrote it, when prepping, when shooting and during the long, motivational drainage that is editing.

      But I guess that’s also where the love was born. No matter all the mistakes I made, I could somehow save it and make a decent first short thanks to the editing by re-arranging the pieces I had. Throw away most of it, stretching what was left of it, slowing or speeding up some of it, playing some of it in reverse. Dubbing in new sound (needed, cause most of it was unusable. Note to self: Don’t forget sound!

      I’ve tried to make another short since, but haven’t completed the shoot. I don’t know if I’ll finish that one, it’s just a silly comedy I made with my then girlfriend, now fiancée on my phone (This one was shot on the DVX200 before anyone asks, cameras are important on this forum apperantly, hehe) because she wanted me to make something less depressing, but I guess I’m just a gloomy guy, all my new ideas are based on my different malfunctions.

      Hopefully I’ll work up enough energy to make another, I really want to.

      Anyway, enough talking. I hope you’ll give this a go and give me some pointers, but go easy on me, okay?

      Now, pick you poison:
