Really nice footage. It’s great to see how people like you can take advantage of what a camera like the EOS R (and the Mavic, of course) can do.

But I’ll be a bit critical here, since that’s how we grow…

What you have is a beautiful collection of footage, but I struggled to get through the whole cut. What’s the story you’re trying to tell? What do you want us to take away from your film? (And I call it a film, because in my mind, that’s what you’re trying to create.)

With a piece like this, even if people want to call it a “travel blog” video, what I want is to get a sense of how your experience of this place impacted you. How did it change you? What did you see that other people can’t see, or don’t see?

I’d also suggest, with a piece like this, that when you get it cut to where you think it’s ready (like it is now), go back and cut two minutes out of it. An editor I worked for once told me that the first shot an editor should cut is the director’s favorite shot. Chances are it’s too long, and it’s probably the very first shot the director wants to see. What I think he meant is the old creative adage, “kill your children.” Don’t get too attached to footage you love, if using it brings down the energy of the edit.

Finally, take a good look at what I call the “rhythms” of your edit. In the opening minute or so, it feels like there are a lot of the same shots. Big, wide aerials. Girlfriend looking off into the distance. And many of them feel like the same framing. Show me some details, some close ups. After all, the experience of a place like this is as much in the details as in the vistas.

Again, you have some great footage here. Craft it into a story, one with energy that ebbs and flows, and you’ll have something beautiful.
