    The rape scene was very sensitively handled.

    Don't you mean 1:25?

    Nice video JJ, Grid 2 booth panning skills. Hope you get some extra work out of it.

    @THFourteen Booth babes completely forgot about, filmed for around 5 hours and then my brother came in at 2 because all other tickets were sold out so then I kinda stopped filming and played games haha!

    The music doesn't fit it (it's pretty bad) and you seem to have missed what the focus of the show is - the games. The camera work is fine but the editing needs a little work, maybe shoot more film and then you have more to choose from when editing it down.

    It manages to make it look like there were about 50 people that turned up too.

    @Aargh. Pretty sure I didn't miss the focus on what the show is... editing needs a little work how? I shot plenty of footage just didn't want it to be really long.

    Yeah, the music was fine - very "video package" :)

    I totally called it.

    Yeah the music was a terrible choice, sorry.

    It also didn't really do anything that the 50 million other swooping/close up/fast cut/oh look! videos of the expo have done already.

    I don't mean to sound pointlessly obtuse, but you did say you were a professional and I assume by making the thread you are looking for feedback and not just video hits.
  • Deleted user 2 October 2012 18:05:01
    The editing shows no creativity and the pacing is a little dull and monotone - change the rate of cuts at different points based on what's onscreen/a good music choice.

    It doesn't convey much of an atmosphere, it shows about 2 seconds of the show and 90% is either swooping shots of inanimate consoles or of people standing in costumes doing nothing of interest.

    Maybe the show was just incredibly boring and you have caught that essence, in which case congrats.

    @Aargh. We learn from our mistakes don't we, I didn't think it was that bad but everyone has their own opinions. Some people think its good, some people don't. Your always going to get that though no matter what with anything. I just made it for fun as I love eurogamer each year.

    Thanks for the feedback again though gives me something to improve upon when it comes to later filming and editing for other big events.

    Any chance you do any filming or editing at all?

    Sorry, thought you wanted constructive criticism not "some people like it, some don't".

    I'm not a professional videographer so I made this starring me mate. Highlight of my day was tormenting an Alien and getting abuse from the Marine. Jeez thought I was helping them out...

    I love "musical cuts" (?) like;

    http://www.pinkbike.com/video/205604/

    the cuts on the beat that starts about 1.02

    A popular style that a lot of people are trying on the youtubes, but I think that's one of the best examples that I remember seeing recently.

    People bouncing around on BMXs is obviously a far more entertaining thing to film that a bunch of nerds waving their hands on playing a Connect Xbox of course:)

    @graysonavich Yeah I agree completely about the filming the BMXing to gamers. You have a lot more creative freedom to do what you want and venture out a lot more rather then just stalls of games. Good choice of video though loved the Nike BMX film
