It's to promote our local bird marts. This is a learning process so the camera work sucks, but I'll get some better footage at the next bird mart.

It's nice! :) But you're only missing one thing...

The date.

I left the date off on purpose because I don't want to have to update the video every time there's a new bird mart approaching. It's generally meant to be used in connection with other material that gives the date, like the website and Facebook events. The next one is on October 23, three weeks from today.

That footage was from the April bird mart. The October bird mart always has more birds because more of the babies are weaned in the fall.

I liked the song you used. It's actually not bad at all! I wish my editing skills were like that!

I picked it because it happened to be almost exactly the same length as the video. It's Vivaldi, The Four Seasons, third movement of the Spring concerto. Fabulous piece of work overall. I totally love baroque music, but clarinets weren't used then so I never get to play it in orchestra unless somebody did an adaptation for full orchestra.

I think you did a great job considering that it's been your first go! My fiance and I do photography and videography so I know how hard it can be to put a video together. Even worse when you're after the royalty free music :lol:

Very nice to see a vasa there. Don't see those too often. They're a species I am very interested in keeping. Maybe it's because I love raptors haha!

One thing I learned from doing this was not to move around so much while I'm filming. The clips would have looked better if the shots were steady instead being on the move so much. There are only two big bird marts per year, so I've had to wait six months for an opportunity to shoot some better clips.

Also, get good lighting. If a shot looks dark, switch the angle. It should be better unless the entire room is dark (which it isn't).
