Kites & Whirlwinds, v2

I revisited my “Garden Spinners” (was: “Kites”) video this afternoon, making at least 8 changes to the video. It is much more faithful to the beat now, and a bit more interesting too. Additionally, I upgraded the bitrate to 6 mbps VBR (original version was 5 mbps VBR), so if you had downloaded the previous version, please re-download the new one — it’s better.

I got some pretty positive feedback about this particular video, so I am interested to know if people prefer it over my jellyfish video. The jellyfish video is one of most “liked” HV20 videos on Vimeo ever, so I wonder which one is better.

I honestly don’t understand why people like your “kites” video. Seems to me if you had zoomed out some and got an overall shot of the kites they would look better. It’s kinda like shooting just one pedal on a flower instead of the whole flower.

This is the admin speaking...

The video is semi-abstract. And people seem to love that. Showing the whole spinner just wouldn’t look as impressive. In fact, it might have looked a little lame, while focusing only on the spinning parts adds mystery and more action.

Both were well done, but I preferred the jellyfish which for me had greater variety.
