I really like the edit man, it's some good riding too. The only thing I noticed was that the filming was kind of unstable, especially the shots in the beginning. If you could find a way to stabilize the shots with your glidecam that would make it better, but I still think it's an awesome edit. I only point out that point because you asked for critique. Keep on filming!
Thanks man, I realized after that my shutter speed and fps weren't set properly in terms of one another. I also realized I need more weight on top of my glidecam because my camera itself is a bit too light. Thanks again.
No way I talked to you at Highland the day you filmed this. I told you I just bought a T3i. I had a feeling you were an NSer...
I liked the edit! You had a lot of good shots in there. So don't let my numerous critiques take away from it haha.
A couple critiques on the edit:
-The opening shot and a few others were a bit jerky. Try to be a little more fluid with the movements of the camera. It helps to move with your lower body rather than your arms.
-When you follow the biker over the jump try to pan the camera at one speed. The fast - slow - fast is hard to follow and makes it shaky. It also puts the biker in awkward places in the frame and will make the slow-mo look better.
-A few of the clips where you follow the biker over a few jumps then onto the wall ride you kinda of lose the biker as he distances himself from the camera. IMO, it would be cool to cut it after he's on his way to the wall ride then jump to a closer, different angle of him on the wall ride.
-Try to have the biker be in the back third of the frame when the clip starts (example: at 0:18 and 0:24, he's in the middle of the frame) and then keep him on the back 2/3rds until the end of the clip. From 0:21-on and 0:27-0:31 in those clips you had great placement. At 0:32 he's leaving the frame so it implies he's done catching the eye of the viewer but he goes over another jump.
-Try to mix up the angles to keep the attention of the viewer. Get creative with it. Take 10 shots from 10 different angles and if you like 1 or 2 of them then you succeeded. Sometimes it's hard to tell if an angle is goofy or not until you put it into an edit.
Obviously these are just suggestions and aren't filming laws so go ahead and break them. In fact, don't always abide by them because that's boring. That's what style in filming/photography is - doing things out of the ordinary. Keep it up!
