    Shot a race in an amateur cup in northern Sweden, SDC 5000 (5000 is the maximum cost of the veichle (about 800$))
    My first attempt at shooting moving objects (and editing).
    Please give some constructive criticism.



    Shot with a P3P at 1080 24fps and a shaky handheld Nikon d5100. =)

    thank you, not easy to get a professional look on a video, still a ton to learn. But practise makes... progress..? =)

    Thanks, would love some less positive comments though, cause it's definitely not perfection =)

    Good job - maybe a couple of minutes too long

    I found this on another thread which kind of makes sense -

    Opportunities
    - shorter cuts (2-5secs norm; occasional longer if there is a dramatic reveal at the end
    - overall should be 1-3mins max. This means the 'director'has to make tough choices on content

    Thank You for those comments, 2-5 second clips I think I've heard 5-8seconds, will try adding some shorter clips next time, but I agree totally on overall length, the drivers wanted a video and I wanted to show most of the cars, but maybe I would have been better of doing 3-4 videos..
    There was 1 hour 15 minutes of footage, but quite easy to get it to 15 minutes... then I had to get picky.
    There was three minor crashes that day, I missed all of them =(
    Maybe that would have made a good "dramatic" ending.

    Thanks again for your feedback.
