    First off, congratulations on shooting and directing your first music video!

    Watching the video the first time through, there are a few things running through my mind. I see that there are many jump-cuts that you use that incorporate what looks like video and stills. To me, I feel like it gives an accelerated pace. It is not a bad thing, but I feel like the video’s pacing could be slowed down with some slow-motion (7D – 60FPS?) shots. One specific spot that I would love to have seen a slow-motion segment would be at 2:11. As for the story, I feel like you did a great job in “telling the story.” I think simplicity is needed in music videos in order to tell the story because directors do not have much time to work due to the constraints of the song. In my opinion, you nailed the story.

    When I watched the music video again, I feel like it could use some detail shots for the story as well as the performance. I love the extreme close-up shots and the rack focus shots. It looks great but I think that the video could incorporate different types of shots. I’d like to see the camera move because often times I would get tired of looking at the same type of shot over and over again.

    Overall, I would give the music video an 8/10. This is mainly because how the video was shot. Honestly, I felt bored watching a decent part of the video but the storyline was what kept everything together. You did much better than my first music video.

    Thank you for letting me share my opinion.
