Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

You really know how to brighten the night before another March storm. I would take motoring on the ICW right now!!

Cheers. (p.s. life is too short for boxed wine, my friend)

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Is not hard for me to find something to criticize about anything, when asked. I really don't have anything for you, Drake. I like that the format is real. It's just coming along for the ride. Nice balance of sailing and random chat. If any of it is staged, you do an excellent job of hiding it.

Seriously, I like it as is.

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Your crosscuts are really good (the crossfades that cut out the unnecessary stuff when someone is speaking). It keeps things moving nicely. And your titles are getting better and better!

Also - great job on the food and drink aspect. That's always a great thing to see (how other people eat and prepare food while underway.

You guys are doing a great job. Keep it up!

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!

I have seen Distant Shores and unsubscribed. While excellent production quality, they were little more than annoying teases to buy their video sets.

Again, I like the way Drake establishes a style where the viewer isn't being instructed or lectured or sold. It's not a National Geographic documentary, its a fellow sailor on a cruise. Done well.

No idea how this becomes economically rewarding, but I can't tell if that is the intent anyway.

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Great videos! Perhaps spend a bit of the editing time running the sound thru a filter or EQ to lessen the engine noise? A wind sock and directional mic couldn't hurt, either.
I await next installment with great expectation.

regards, and thanks
Paul

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Just want to say great job on the videos! I actually came across your video in St Martin a while back and loved the feel of it. I live in Kentucky and have been obsessed with the dreams of sailing off to some tropical destination for a few years now. Not sure how I got the sailing bug living in Kentucky but there it is. Dreaming of sailing I often find myself scanning the youtube videos trying to get a "fix" for my obsession. Lots of videos out there but gotta say yours show the everyday life of what goes on in a sailors life. Just the right blend of sailboat to land footage. I am curious about if you have a video out with a tour of the Paragon, something similar to the videos series of the Southern Cross?

Re: Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure

Just get out there and do it ky! It's pretty awesome.

Do a charter. I bought a boat because we're close enough to the coast to keep it. But charters make WAY more sense than owning if you're inland. And you can sail where ever you want in the world - and let others foot the bill for the upkeep. That's smart money.
