Look, I'm a creative dude - and I don't like harshing other creative dudes' work. After all, it's a very subjective world out there. But if you're going to come at a forum with both SuperHype Barrels blazing - you'd better have the goods.

I know you've put a lot into this. But it ain't there yet.

Just keep working on it. Make it so good that you don't have to hype it. That's when you KNOW it's "awesome".

Good luck bro.

What exactly does "gravity is imminent" mean ? (about 40secs in of the SA preview.) I've tried watching all the previews but no way am I sitting through that load of rubbish in full. Particularly as I suppose we'd be expected to pay for it. The visuals are actually quite good but the narrator is simply effing awful.

Smack ... I appreciate what you say re "harshing" but really. When someone comes in claiming that their product is the worlds best they should at least have risen above mediocrity.

ps - maybe I didn't notice this yesterday but now the site only claims best of 2014.

Forgive me for going a bit off topic here, but I am so in love with 'SuperHype Barrels blazing'...that is hilarious!

I am definitely going to use that in a sentence today.

Look a little closer. Five people hardly constitute an audience. The is a great place. You have this opportunity to talk directly with people like me. I think that it's good for film makers and there audience. I do appreciate your feedback thanks. All the best.

So what's your ratio of likes to dislikes?

5, 100, 1000 - doesn't matter. If you're getting consistent feedback, you need to listen to it.

People who are doing it well? Drake Paragon, S/V Delos, Wicked Salty, White Spot Pirates, Teleport, and many more.

(PS - from what I can gather from your teaser, we're in the same boat as it were. I wish you and your daughter peace dude. Hang in there.)

People are reacting to what I said, not the film.
All of those sailing videos you just mentioned, they are home made and of very low quality, and even lower production values. If you guys can get over what I said, that would be nice. All the best.

Dino, as I said above, you and I have a lot in common (look here):

About The Smackboys | SmackTalk!

So, I wish you luck with your doco. But I honestly think you should listen to the critique of people here.

More importantly, I wish you and your daughter the very best. You are out there doing what I intend to do with my boys. You've got my respect for that.

God bless.

That's great, I hope you find your way.
My brother, this is not a YouTube video. I wanted to talk a bit with the public domain. This film is a feature documentary, at 1 hour in 40 minutes
Yes I should not have stuck my foot in my mouth granted. We would love to send you a copy on release. Or you can find us on Netflix, in April.
Cheers Dino R.Poulson

Well if it is the same quality as the promo videos, then I don't think you are going to find much of an audience. Most of the complaints are more about the production quality than your comments, other than it not living up to the hype. For one the narration on the promo's is poor at best. I understand that you seem to be prone to hyperbole, it gets old quick. How many times in the short videos did you say things like "epic" and other annoying non descriptive phrases? The thought of sitting through 1 hour and 40 min of that brings to mind the scene in "A Clockwork Orange" where he is forced to watch TV as part of his "cure." Perhaps you should watch "Holdfast" not that it is even a good video.

Good on ya to get out there with your daughter though. I am sure it was a great experience for both of you.
