This was my first try to direct a skate video. If you have any feedback i'd like to hear it. I might try to shoot more parks in the future. Although, this one is more about interesting camera work than displaying tricks. I think i might try to be more balanced if i do it again. What do you think Huh?

1. don't spell skate like that (sk8)
2. don't film at skateparks unless you are filming legitimate transition skating
3. if we can't see the ride away, the trick never happened
4. silhouettes only work for specific tricks if done right
5. use better music
6. try to get most of the skater in the shot, if not all of the skater in the shot
7. use better skaters if you are trying to impress, otherwise focus on fun and not "extreme"
8. don't use weird effects just for the sake of using effects
9. Huh?
10. PROFIT!!!

HA! Yeah, it is patronizing using "SK8" isn't it. Obviously i don't know what i'm doing, so the feedback is good. Mainly the reason for the transitions and extra garbage i threw on the video was because, honestly either nobody was landing anything i was shooting, or it didn't look good. I suppose either have footage of great tricks being landed or don't shoot it all...

If you don't use effects for the sake of using effects than when would you use them?

to enhance how the shit looks, you're showing off the skating, not the effects and editing.

^^^agreed.


also, you might want to invest in a tripod to start with 'cause a lot of this is really shaky and hard to follow.

pick and choose your effects wisely. use them for comedic purposes or arty purposes if you must, but the effects you used just look cheap. good filming, angles, and footage will get you much further than effects ever will.

wow, i had no idea it was this bad. I should just destroy the whole thing. I tried to use the effects to make it interesting and give some variety to the other skate vids out there. I was fine with how rough and unsteady some of the camera work was, making it look raw, or something...I can see how it can make somebody nauseous after watching it again...makes you want to throw your hamburgers back up.
