Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure
Plus one what these other guys said. The videos have grown form a "home video" type early on, like the Bermuda trip from hell, to really professional looking. They aren't "too" produced though, which is good, and I think you are developing an editing style that is unique to you, which is a great thing.
There are two other video makers that have made videos that are also really good. Paul and Sheryl Shard of Distant Shores (posts in this forum from time to time) and Alex Dorsey of Project Bleusphere. Both of those producers have film making backgrounds and yours are at least as good, and in some ways better.
The only thing that I noticed that I could comment on, and I was watching this last video with a very critical eye, since you asked for that, is the frequency of the fades while someone is talking. I agree with Smack that it is a great effect, but at some points three might be three or four of those fades within 10 seconds or so. That's a little bit distracting when they are that fast. That's about all I can think of and it is really not a big deal at all.
I suspect at some point, word of mouth is going to reach some critical mass and your videos are going to get crazy numbers of views. At least as much as one could expect for sailing videos.
BTW, I feel your pain on that stupid bridge. Been stuck there too! Ours was only 3 hours though. Train broke down on the bridge and had to wait for a tow!
