Hi,
I have recently completed another quick indian cooking video. The aim was to keep it pacy and interesting. It was shot kind of loosley, without a solid shot list, which was why I have had to intergrate captioned sequences in some parts. Aiming to be a bit more organised on the next one. Feedback would be really appreciated ;-)

This is not funny:mad:

I just bought a suit which I have to fit into for the IOV convention and it's already tight on me, now I'm hungry and love Indian food so off to get some.

If I need to buy another suit, I'm sending you the bill:)

Nice intro, good stuff:)

Cheers,

flame.

it's not nearly so fattening if you turn the sound off :D

I like your work. Not sure if I like the jump cuts in this one however. They seem...necessary, rather than intentional, if you know what I mean.

Hey Rob, I thought that was pretty convincing. More to the point, your presenter should be on mainstream. A little bit of coaching and a better script and she'd be away. (Watch out Nigella!)

Thanks for the input guys, perhaps I should have included an "appetite advisory" notice on the first post ;-)

Mike, you're quite right - in the quest to shed a few seconds here and there, I had to make a few compromises on some of the cuts. I think it's something that should get better once I have a definitive plan for the shots want to get, thus building up better cutaways.
Rob, at present it isn't really scripted at all, so I'm hoping that by bringing in a greater element of structure to the shoot it will allow for a smoother end product! Do you have any recommendations for organisations to approach for presenter coaching?

As a project, it's quite nice as we seem to be getting better results with each shoot - and it's always great to have input from the outside - so thanks!

Other than a few editing glitches, with a little more advance planningI think you have the makings of a fine product.

I've never done something like this before, so my idea is just off the top of my head, but it seems like it would make editing a lot easier with more cameras covering the action. Is that a possibility?

The BBC used to run courses, not sure if they still do. Otherwise, I know an ex-BBC guy who does it privately for, amongst others, the police. If you are interested PM me and I'll give you his email.
