    Couldn't watch it, sorry. Far too jerky and unpleasant on the eyes.

    Yes, the edit is a little er... frenetic trying to match the music which is a shame as there are some lovely shots. Try a few more soft fades and longer shots, or cut down on the caffeine

    It's a shame because many of the shots are potentially attractive and you have the idea that the film needs to tell a story. Some of us have an attention span of more than 1.5 seconds so why not take advantage of it by letting us settle into a scene? In the old days of cine we were told that an effective shot should last seven seconds except for effect and we got used to counting while shooting, so much so that I am still in the habit of counting seconds while doing anything (no comments please). All this was while were were paying through the nose per foot of film, so we knew that it had to work.

    Don't be put off by our negative comments but be a good chap and pop round and do it again. And turn that awful music off.

    A crushing critique of my film editing skills...
    Nowadays, peopleís attention span is about 1.25 seconds, hence the erraticity of the clips.

    It's not really the editing. You have to be thinking ahead when taking the shots about how they will fit together. Jump-cuts just don't work, so taking scene-setting shots that you can insert makes it much easier. Panning is still banned under EU law I believe, or should be.

    I guess you have kept the rushes....? Maybe a rework taking on board a few of the constructive comments and this will be a good watch.

    As for attention span of 1.25 seconds, whilst that may be true of today’s teenagers... I’m guessing for the majority of the guys on here and I suppose your target audience are just a tad older �� ?

    Thanks for posting, but have another go if you feel up to it....

    No critical intent ...err intended.... believe me I know exactly what it’s like to have your work less than favourably received !
