Shot with a Canon t5. Filmed at Keystone Parks. Unfortunately the only program I have to use is iMovie but I this coming season I am buying a better program to edit video with and I'm stoked ! Please let me know what ya think about it. I'll take any sort of criticism good or bad. I have asked for critique before on here with my other edits and some of you really helped me out and gave me really great tips, so here I am asking for your help again !
Filming was good. Skiing was good. Edit was fine. Would have been better if that editing had more flow and if lines were filmed not just rail shot to a different rail shot, also if there were less cutouts to shots of lifts and stuff
Like others have said a little more flow would be nice
Also I wouldn't have used the same shot for your whole introduction(looking down a street) maybe changed it a couple times as the text changed
Also felt the shot of the clouds lasted too long around (2:17 i think)

here are some of the things i see, and i'll be more critical so you have a few more things to work on:
intro was too long/needs something more to it, maybe some motion to the shot or multiple shots like suggested.
a lot of the shots are a bit shakey, use a tripod or if your looking to keep it more affordable a monopod will help and works well if you're not using a whole lot of zoom and stick more stationary angles. also a few of the shots were too close up, so the subject was overtaking the frame.
for my taste it was a little long without much variety, so i would cut out some repeated tricks and straight slides, and maybe just get a little more selective.
try to tie in some more transitions with the editing, like someone said before, the cloud shot was a little random, and the cat shot while cool, didn't have any context (might have been better used as a transition from intro to skiing). while it would be nice to have a few lines of rails in there, that's not completely necessary and sometimes not possible when filming multiple people, but it did tend to get a choppy shot shot shot feel, maybe play with a few things going from one shot to the next with both editing and how you shoot it.
I Liked that it was weird. Should've been weirder. There are some things that have been mentioned above that can be improved on the technical side but I made it to the end despite the filming and the skiing being not that great so that's a plus.
