First crack at making a movie - Marlborough Tops Trip

Hi everyone,

Having owned DSLR's for several years I have never used the video capabilities they have .... until last week.

This is my first attempt at putting a movie together.
You've all heard the saying "a picture tells a thousand words". Well, I figure if an image can tell a thousand words without any narrative, then a video should surely be able to tell 10,000 words, without any narrative ??

So, this movie is simply documenting a four day fly camping trip I did last week into some Marlborough tops country. (I do plan on doing more of these in the near future and may even get a dedicated camcorder).

Any constructive criticism is greatly received.

Matt

Bloody good results for a first crack Matt!
Some quality footage--edited nicely.
When editing moving footage, we tend to linger a bit long on some scenes.
As viewers we have a short attention span--30 seconds they say. So 30 second and less clips, keeps us interested.
Youtube has a music library-with free to use sound tracks.
Sometimes a quiet underlying soundtrack can set the mood.

Cheers.

Thanks for those replies.

Baz ,,,, yeh, I realised the first time I watched the rendered final version that I should have shortened many of the individual clips. Thanks.

Great footage especially the fawn footage.  Those deer look sleek, love the summer coats.

Good one, some superb country. A bit of background music may just finish it off. Cheers for sharing

Nothing a good sound track wont fix, awesome footage and scenery but to be fair these vids with nature sounds dont float my boat.

Just my thoughts

Hey Matt, you drove off at the end and left your camera behind mate!!  Cheesy

Loved the hind with fawn (very intimate  Shocked) and the cloud movements along with other landscape/fauna shots. Nice.

Agree with Baz re. shortening up some segments and a bit of background music adds effect IMO . . . but not a music video aye!

I've subscribed of course!

PS. nice pack  Wink

Nice first effort. I agree with the feedback that you did linger on some clips for too long.   Also rather than doing static landscape, it is normally more interesting to watch when the camera is moving. So smoothly rotate your camera on your tripod.

You would need a very expensive camcorder to get better film quality than a dSLR...
