Introducing Shauncho

I visited the Drist on Saturday during recording, and shot another video of the band. This time the fourth member of the band was present too, Shauncho, so we got to shoot an interview. As a bonus, the band sent me samples of two songs from their upcoming album, which are heard on the video.

I am looking for feedback again, like I did for the first interview video I shot and edited two months ago. I think I did much better this time (ignoring the wind sound on the microphone during the interview, couldn’t do much about it with that cheap mic).

I like the two angles you used to shoot the interview. You used a tripod, so that’s ok.
I remember you used fade outs/ins a lot in the first Drist interview, so if you want to be consistent, you’ll need to do it here also. I found the non-interview shots a bit shaky. In the beer-break scene, you moved a lot between the two guys. Maybe consider sticking to one, and move to the other only towards the end of shot. (But it ‘s too late for that now, of course.)
Have you considered adding over-the-top effects in the scenes where he’s playing the guitar? (lots of colour, waves etc), or perhaps, if you prefer a no-nonsense approach, put the non-interview scenes in black and white. In your B-roll footage, you showed the guitar at least twice. Maybe you should think of extreme close-ups of the guitar also. Maybe you could still do this in post-production, because I’m quite sure you shot it in HiDef. Greets!

They are different videos shot two months apart, they don’t really have to be consistent.

>I found the non-interview shots a bit shaky.

Yup, they were too spread out in the room. 😀

>In your B-roll footage, you showed the guitar at least twice.

I was out of footage. Nothing else to show. However, please note, the two guitar footages are not the same, although indeed it looks weird.
