    So, the title says it so. With my camerafriend Joe I traipsed around Eurogamer this year getting some interviews, talking about the show itself and generally enjoying myself.

    The video is here, on a channel I've recently made for collab stuff:

    Apologies if this seems like a drive by video dump, I'm just pretty pleased with how it came out and I'd like to see it shared a bit more. This forum seems like an appropriate place to do so :)

    Just for your information mate that's an escalator not an elevator, I enjoyed your video though.

    You better watch out.
    You better beware.

    Facepalm lol, I like your sense of humour, you could make a career out of that, you just need to polish a few things up here and there.

    @OptimusPube

    why does he need to Polish things?, his British accent was on point.

    That was great, really enjoyed that. The unboxing segment made me chuckle.

    Yep, mirroring others thoughts and did really enjoy it, especially after just getting back from the show myself today.

    Constructive criticism: Did find the fact that it was out of focus or slightly soft a lot of the time quite distracting and the edit needs a bit of tightening (although it was obviously a quick turn around so whatever).

    You were very likeable and relaxed on camera so can definitely so promise there.

    /bookmarks, would try again.

    Both points completely on the nail, and regarding the focus; Joe has never used my camera before and the lighting meant there was no real autofocus available. Still, I hope to get a soft light and maybe a stable rig in the future to help with these issues. I think he did a fantastic job, considering.

    Again, thanks for the feedback!

    fair enough then, can be tricky in low light
    light wise I recommend an ikan led, relatively low cost compared to other similar products on the market and very light weight to carry around and battery lasts forever

    I liked your beard. It went well with the glasses.

    Constructive criticism: if the beard could be bigger that would be fantastic.

    Also, wear a lower cut shirt and frolic some more. Maybe do some yoga stretches with one of those fitness balls.

    Also get a Toblerone and stick it in your bung hole then wiggle suggestively.

    You better watch out.
    You better beware.

    Ooh yeah, I wouldn't have minded seeing a bit of belly hair peeking out while you stretched.

    I'm talking about you, cubby.

    I enjoyed your video and also your beard. Is it on Twitter?

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    Honest feedback if you want it: A lot of focus and composition issues. Sound and video editing was all over the place and the general content was confusing. For something to be twice as long as it needed to be it really needs to have a better theme. And personally, I didn't really get the humour, but that's probably just my fault.

    Creating videos is fun though, and you've obviously got a keen eye for things, so keep at it!

    I watched the video expecting it to be shit but was pleasantly surprised.
  • Deleted user 29 September 2013 17:12:08
    Good video, well done. I'm too tired to actual decent feedback.

    Just watched it there. Petty good! You're funny, and good on camera. A few others have pointed out wee technical things, and the edit could do with a bit of tightening, but overall a good video.

    We filmed a lot over the weekend for our coverage, but I also went and caught a weird, violent stomach bug from the expo, so I don't know when I'm going to get a chance to edit :( I'll link you up to our videos when (if!) they're ready!

    If you aren't utterly disgusted by me please check out my videogames show at:

    I enjoyed the vid - nice one.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    I'd disagree with almost all of that.
