Great job, very good editing. Video quality and lighting could have been better, could have just been youtube. The music on the first video was a bit out there, but hey I am an old fart. What camera did you shoot the video with?
nah i was just up north on a trip and had the camera along. im down near detroit in ann arbor.
thanks Kevin, i have been messing with editing for a while now and am getting closer to making it good without tons of effects and trans. i may be looking into a school for video and editing ect. the lighting was not the best in some shots, i try to get out early morning or a little before sundown when you get nice color and shadowing effect. middle daylight isnt the best quaility in my opinion unless your shooting and editing with professional equipment.
as far as the camera a few clips were shot with a pro HD canon XL and a the others were just a mini hand held sony. haha
the boat incase any of you were wondering is a ski challenger. a ski boat back in its day that did not do good on the market because it was built to heavy for skiing. i load it down with 700 - 1000 lbs and it gets me a decent wake. nothing like my friends Nautique tho!
haha yeh bret i cut a few clips short because of falls. i try to put clips like that in an upbeat part of the song where i can transfer them quick without needing the landing but i just threw those in there. I wish i could of had that double up indy glide on camera landed! it was a quick edit to play with different effects and music. i actually clipped 3 minutes out of the overture song on the last video. you would never know. i cant even hear the cut myself and i know where to listen. haha
i started editing with Ulead media studio and then recently went to adobe premier.
ulead is a great program to start with, its somewhat easy to use but still has potential to create good work. Adobe is just a sick software! i played for hours and hours just trying to learn the basics of importing and fading clips. if you know what your doing adobe can create AMAZING work. but i have lately slowed down with the programs for when i go to school i don't have to relearn everything.
