No offense, but no your intro did not fit. It was a good idea but the fact that the camera was left in one position made it real boring. I would've cut it at 20 seconds in your case, but had I been shooting it I would've changed the angles more times and cut the whole thing down to no more then 10 seconds.
Personally, I don't find a need for slow mo on a summer set up. I love skiing and filming in the summer as much as the next guy, but to be honest slow mo really doesn't capture any of the right feelings of the session, considering that it usually consists of trying the same trick over and over again, fast repetition which should corrolate to fast, upbeat editing. Just my opinion on editing style, to each his own I guess.
You guys had some good tricks in there, but unfortunately a side effect of the slow mo is a real lag in action. In some of your shots there was a 2-3 second pause before the skier even entered the frame. That's 2 to 3 seconds that your viewer has to sit waiting for something to happen, and when this occurs over and over again, it definitely takes away from the video.
For example; 2:27 - its a long time before the skier even comes into frame, and in addition, the camera is shaking! Next time, cut that out - its a flaw in camera movement and the viewer doesn't need nor want to see it.
I know a lot of this criticism comes from the use of slow mo, but here's another point - I don't think the editing style fit the song. The song was upbeat, a good choice for a summer edit, with the fast happy synth in the background, but the edit is slow and drags on. Fast cuts, fast transitions, and no slow mo would fit much better in my opinion, and would also match the essence of the session much better too.
In terms of shots, I really only saw a couple different angles. I know its hard to shoot in different spots while you're trying to session, but some motion in your shots would help your edit so much - some pans, some tilts, some dolly work if you can manage - all of that would go toward increasing the viewer's subconscious interest in your video by making your shots more visually appealing.
Don't take any of this personally - its all a part of making videos and learning and progressing with your skills. However, I think that you probably could've put more effort into making this a "good" video - obviously not skiing, because you guys were pretty good, but I felt that shooting wise it lacked a lot and I believe that you can be more creative with the images you can produce. Remember, its not about the camera - who cares if its bad or if you're getting a new one - its ALL about the person holding the camera and what they decide to do with it.
Keep at it mang, make more videos, make tons of videos, and churn out those edits. However, keep what I said in mind for next time so that you can improve. Keep it real yo.
OP: "If you suddenly skied off a huge fuckin cliff and you only had time to throw one last trick before you died, what would it be?"
