Awesome Music Video/Doc_Summer Hatfield

This is a really well done short documentary/music video. It is very original and is a great example of how to tell a good story in a short amount of time. We get a good sense of the people and characters by the way they have been captured. The filmmakers begin with some dialogue from the characters before they are ever shown, and this establishes what the video is about. Then they introduce each character by showing a shot of them in front of their bikes, which really establishes who they are and what the environment is. It is important when trying to really capture something to really get in there, show perspective shots, establishing shots, close-ups, shots where the characters are being really candid. This video is a great example of all of that. It also shows how extreme close ups make nice transitions and help avoid jump cuts. And sometimes music over a video can be too much, or kill the natural sounds. But this is a good example of where the music really works for the piece, and the natural sounds are allowed to come through.

    The music is great and serves as a perfect build up to those crazy stunts! I also thought the audience reaction shots were great. Very well done!

    I wonder how much effort went into positioning the cameras for all those different shots, if everything was filmed in a day? Worked great how most were static, but sometimes the camera swung in a circle either with the motion of the vehicles, or counter to it
