Powerchair Football film draft one

While I would stress that it's just a first draft and it still needs work, allow me to direct you here, to the first version of my Powerchair Football film. While I wrote the script, Matt B did the camera work, and without his help my idea would not have gone very far. We finished it and uploaded it yesterday, but now plan too continue with the idea to make a longer, better film. Let me know what you think.

The editing needs to make the film match the script (e.g when the narration says 'score a goal' the visual should show a goal being scored). You need more frequent cuts from action to action, and some closer shots of the players. Long shots are fine, but there's no emotional interaction, shots of concentration, shots of joy when a goal is scored, that type of thing. I watched many uninspiring training films years ago which were just like the shots you have so far, they were made cheaply and with real film, so it was expensive to shoot and expensive to edit. Modern technology makes it much easier to make it more dynamic. Don't give up - its a good idea, but there's more to do to make it worth showing to other people.

Excellent suggestions, thanks. As I said, I know it needs work, but as a first draft it shows promise. You're right about it needing more emotion.
