  • I Repeat..I'm Not a Filmmaker

    I mentioned that I've been working on a paper for school on digital piracy. We were given the opportunity for extra credit if we created a PSA on the topic. Here's mine. Let me know if you see any MAJOR mistakes such as spelling, grammar or anything that doesn't seem to be visually appealing.



    The images of me are short because I'm not the message and I also thought it was a cool effect. I dunno. I have to stay right around 2 minutes so...

      Nice.



      The author of the quote in the beginning should be a smaller font.



      The images of you really need to be longer. Maybe just make the fade in/out longer.

        Agreed, those quick changes feel rushed and out of place. While it may be intentional, the result ends up being perceived as a mistake.

          Yep, the images should be longer and should fade in and out. Actually Potts, I think the project is about you, in that it is about stealing music from artists and you are using you as an example of that.

            Try to change the pics on the beat of the song! Just figure out tempo of song and set pic length to that. Would be a lot smoother and emphasize the music, make it seem less like a slide show

              Thanks you guys! I saw the error of my ways. I just re-edited it. Worked with tempo a little bit more. I fixed some of the grammar. We'll see. I'll put it up tomorrow if you guys can take a peak again.

                  Very cool!!!!!



                  One suggestion. SHARE!!! flashes so quickly. I get the effect you're going for but this is so out of the norm from convention it too jarring. But how do you do elongate without destroying your timeline that follows? Leave SHARE!!! up and fade out the opacity so it overlays the next bit of text about stealing. So SHARE!!! fades out but gets to stay longer than a blip.



                  Anyway, very cool work. Very cool idea. Nicely done. What do you mean you're not a filmmaker. You are now.

                    Just my $.02. I think it's really good, however I would ditch the "He was too busy picking his jaw up off the floor" line. The "He didn't sign it" already makes your point. The other line just seems out of place for an otherwise objective, "just the facts" feel of the rest of the video. Just my humble opinion

                      Hmmm... Does anyone else have an opinion on this?



                      Thanks Blue!

                          I really liked it....especially the song, that is really good.



                          The only critique I have seconds the Share! sign needing to be held longer.



                          Other than that it is awesome.

                              I'm probably nit-picking too much, it just didn't jive with the rest of the tone of the video if that makes any sense.
