Yeah its ok and I watched all the way through without pause but it would have more impact if you hadn’t primed us with your choice of stills and claim about it being fun, that kinda ruins the surprise. My only real annoyance is that I think it could have been shot a bit wider and smoother since there is some nice performance;/movement happening in there that gets lopped of by the frame and occasionally hidden, Otherwise it’s a really solid.

th'idea's a good start, but shot & edited liked this, you almost don't notice.

nice idea, but:

  1. the turning point comes way too late.

  2. why is there a referee in proper "uniform" but no audience? it's not logic to me. hard to explain... it's kind of a collision of interior experience (the dance) and exterior experience (a person viewing the event). this bugs me the most.

  3. only my very personal opinion: too many colors. a more abstract look and feel would have been good for the idea. like very desaturated colors. the one guy wearing red and the other one blue - damned, that's too much of a cliché.

too many abstract camera moves... too many edit points... the idea is nice but just doesn't really pay off... I actually think the turning point comes too early because once that happens theres nothing new. I would have preferred to actually see some boxing go down and then for it to switch to ballet for the final round.

Wow too many constructive criticisms, I think the video's great the way it is.
