Hello eveyone!

Some time ago everyone posted their promos. I am a bit slow, so here goes mine.

http://www.arkadia.se/arkadiapromo.wmv

It is my first video ever so be nice. (It is my first editing, as well.) The video is not official yet because I will record some studio performances of juggling and magic to put in.

The day the street scenes were taken, I had a headache of a thousand hang-overs - without drinking a drop of alcohol. It was hot, and I didn't drink enough water. But the result came out okay anyway.

Enjoy!

I wish I could see it Ark, but I'm using a Mac at the moment. Bummer.

Hey Ark,
That looks like some good stuff.
I have a Mac too, so I had to watch it at work today.

I liked the firebreathing opening shot!

I have upploaded a Real Player version. I can't make it into a Quicktime file. (Blame Pinnacle, not me.) Hope this will help.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

The Real Player version can be seen at

http://www.arkadia.se/arkadiapromo.rm

The file is large, about 6 mb, so don't click if you have a slow connection. (The video is only I minute long...)

Mario: She's called "Gry with FM Einheit and his Orchestra". The song is "Princess Crocodile". Great stuf. FM Einheit played togheter with Einstürzende Neubauten earlier but went his own way. Great group and a great album.

Chance: I am workin on it. I was thinking about that trick with a ketschup bottle, or the one where four peole sit down on each other... You know?! Smile

Or not.

Dude! Too cool! And yes, I thought the song was a great companion piece. I can't wait until you have it finished.

Ark the action & performance was great, but if this is a promotional piece you really need to get the expressions & enthusiasm of the crowds edited in somewhere. Your customers are buying fun & entertainment that would let them see that you provide those results.

You are absolutly right on that point. I am workin' on it. I would need more than one camera going when I film a performance, and all I got is one. But next time I will make sure that the audience gets filmed aswell. To bad all my material is crap. And this isn't high season so to speak.

For promo
it does not need to be that long, you can cut it up even more so you get the effect that you have two camaras. Small 5 secound shots say eight in total, with 2 secound stills between each one should do it. It will be fast and very eye catching. That would give you 52 secounds in total.
Mario
PS On the other hand, I still think what you got is great.
