A short documentary I shot over two days for the band I work for whilst they recorded their new EP.
What do you think of the documentary?

- I would have shot more stabilized during the intro. The audio was good however, and he spoke clearly.
- It's passable but that "jello vision" (rolling shutter) is not helping.
- It jumps real bad at about 40 seconds. It's kind of abrupt.
- Nice guitar shot! I love it when photographer don't forget detail shots! The interview from about 0:40 to 1:00 is good too.
- Got to stabilize that camera from 1:00 to 1:20 (etc). Need a tripod!
- The audio is consistently good.
- Nice job of varying the shots some (angle) at 1:55.
- Zoom is good ... but only when stable. Otherwise it's headache-inducing.
- Don't cut the drummers head off. The thing to remember here is to continue varying shots. Go wide sometimes.
- At 4:15, the vocals are shrill sounding and not flattering. That's on them (yuck), but as an editor, try to leave that on the floor.
- Again, detail, nice! The hands at 4:40.
- The singover at 5:00 is good.
- It ends too abruptly. The actual ending was partway through the rambling at 5:00-ish. I'd have cut everything after that.

Overall, the audio is what made it good. The tripod would go a long way on the video.
