I know Alek, my 17-year-old nephew, might say this isn’t quite ready for primetime, because he has a couple more edits to do, but, I have to say it is an amazing job, especially given it’s his first time using mixed resolution source video and he’s still getting to know the editing application.
What makes it work is his choice of cuts and the footage he chose to capture on the day.
They say that as a photographer you either have the eye for it or you don’t, where video is concerned I think it is about 10x harder to get in there amongst the action and make the shots you need.
Alek has achieved that 100% and he’s made something, even in a not-yet-complete edit, the he should be very proud of. It looks great.
