    New Video: Comments and Suggestions Appreciated

    I have been interested in making videos recently. Here is my latest video about biking at Loch Raven here in Maryland: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8gtjBQVnac
    Just wondering how I can improve my videos. Check out my other videos on my channel.

    Looks pretty good to me. Keeping it short is generally a good thing.

    Some of the best videos manage to tell a story (my posted vids would not be a good example of this - I'm a hack and just learning, too).

    I don't see many people synchronizing their vids to music. It's a lot of work, but I really enjoy vids that do it (most of mine do this to one degree or another). This can be a key component of tellng a story.

    The pros tend to use mostly straight cuts and cross fades, leaving the more comlex types of transitions for special effects. You never want your video to look like a video editing software showcase.

    Find some vids in this forum you like and PM the creators for advice if the vids themselves don't tell you what you need to know.

    I can barely get my mouth around it.
