I had to make a one minute video for college and naturally decided to make a short edit. I know there's not much riding but it was mainly focused around the filming and editing style, anyway I hope you like it and any creative comments are welcome.

It's a nice little edit. Like everybody said above, that particular song is a bit over-used but i'm assuming your teacher doesn't watch many BMX edits so i'm sure it won't be marked down for that.

I can't really pick anything WRONG with it, it's good for what it is. The nice outro sort of made me wonder why there wasn't anything similarly interesting in the rest of the video. But you seem to have shown that you can edit to the music with the 'drop' in that song so well done.

You seem to have a focusing issue with the camera though tongue Unless ofcourse you did that on purpose. In which case, it was slightly annoying.

That park looks fun

Nice park, nice riding, good filming, not a BAD song, but an overused one. Warm Bodies, and many many beginner and scooter kid edits. Look into less popular songs man. The Flaming Lips make some great songs for BMX edits. I can think of ten of their songs that would have been great. There are plenty! My rule is is if you are gonna put a song in, put one that no one really has heard in an edit.

good riding. good editing. the song is as said before a bit overused. And the focusing in and out constantly was annoying and took away from the video overall. I could see starting blurry and then focusing but going blurry focus blurry made it hard to watch.
