Interesting read. Thanks m3rrix for taking the time to interview and WaRow for obliging.
It is always a matter of taste. Some content can be elevated with great editing, sometimes the content says it all itself and doesn't need any editing. There are thousands of examples of this in movies.
Some editing is wild, loud, in your face, and ACTIVE.
Some editing is subtle, minimal, is calm.
Some can say, thats boring and bland,
and some can say, thats A.D.D. and is distracting.
Some like Coca Cola, some like Pepsi....etc
IE. Psycho shower - scene - over 90 cuts
The Graduate - the ending scene - it just sits there on the two with an unknown outcome.
Both cases, it creates an atmosphere that is concretized and harmonious OR dissonant with the content and hopefully immerses the viewer into intended ride.
I like both at different times for different reasons, as long as it ELEVATES the content.
To me, stunt vids are "STUNT" vids. I have always wanted to mess around and make more "EDITING" vids, but just was always outweighed by the ideals on the stunt side. I think a bit of both is ideal, so keep on trying things people
Really enjoyed the vid. Glad you had fun making it, and people enjoyed watching it. That's whats important.
Glad there were no "shakes" and loved the bit at the end with CJ.
I had a similar idea for the sketch show.
Edit and have fun everyone but FFS, try to put a little more thought into an intro then just inserting a name over the player........Just push yourself to be more creative or dive right into the stunting
and that is just like, my opinion man.
