Hey guys, check out the teaser I made for me and my buddies' upcoming video. I used Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects to put this together. I was just wondering what you guys though, since you guys probably watch a bunch.

It was all filmed with the GoPro Hero 3 and both my buddies cameras, but I forgot what models they were.

if you like it and wanna keep in touch, twitter is the best way for us! its @jdndsnow

thanks guys!

All of the clips are way too short (less than a second for each it seemed) and the video cuts from trick to trick too fast. I don't really have a chance to understand what's happening in the shots. And there is no real flow to it either. I understand what you were going for, and understand it's a teaser and you don't want to show full tricks and all the footage, but it's just not working- it doesn't make me want to watch the full length. Maybe use a little slow-mo for the clips so that the A.D.D. hyperactiveness is reduced a little bit.

I actually find this to be fairly common even on vids that aren't teasers. Cutting every few seconds, stutter effects, flashes, etc etc bleah. It's not a friggin' video game. If I'm watching a video to see people do cool tricks, I want to see the entire trick from setup to riding out. Nothing wrong with a little artistry in there, but remember the old adage "always leave them wanting more".
