      Thanks Noise

      Hi, Dalor.

      Sometimes, as a filmmaker, there is nothing more fun than to get creative with a good music video. First, let me say for your first music video, this is great. I surely couldn’t say the same for my first one in 1984. Watch your effects. While as an artist, you want to try every look, don’t let them stick without reason. Every filter used needs a purpose or it will stick out like a sore thumb. Don’t forget your white balance. Everything else looked intentional, man. Keep rockin’.

      Good stuff, especially for your first music video. I haven’t done a dedicated music video myself but some of my work on weddings, graduation montagesetc somewhat border on this style. I liked the nice tight cuts at the beginning timed with the music. Interesting effects that you used but as grinner said they should have a purpose and sometimes less is better. Outdoor shots- one effect, indoor another or chorus one effect, verse anouther etc.At the end the credits video portion seemed a bit long for the audio. Text displaying about as much time as reading it 3x outloud seems to work for fast and slow readers. I hope that you take our suggestions as an encouragement to do more video. Like I said GOOD STUFF. Keep shootin’.
