Hi, was just hoping to beg for some feedback. This is the 2nd real video I ever put together so take it easy on me if you can, but be honest.
I filmed this with a mix of my Sony non-HD camcorder and the ContourHD helmet cam I just received as a gift. I’m really just a newb and would appreciate any advice people have…
Forgive me, here is the video embedded… darn small thumbnail! Or maybe not, it shows up right in the preview window, what am i doing wrong?

it keeps stopping…
One of the hardest things is to tell a story in a short time as you have probally found out.
you had some good and imaginative ideas, the garage and car scenes were nice.
I think that a common mistake with short films is that the start of the film has a lot of content and then the pace is quickened to get the story told leaving the rest of the film thin —–this is the case with yours.
With a two min movie you have to hit the ground running, your pace at the beging would have been fine for a 20 min movie.
This is where a script or shooting scedule helps, as a simple guide divide your movie into three parts, a begining, midle and end,then draw a shooting plan- (a pro will have a script and story board).
As a learning tool it is good to shoot the same movie again using the lessons learnt from the first time.
Nice effort keep going
