I think that's what they call "Action Footage" John. :)

Nice one.
I realise it's only a bit of fun, John, but it's always worth commenting.
You've created a great stylistic trailer here. toally overblown music. Great titles and I lived the credit screen at the end. I only hope you don't have a holiday cottage in Wales or I suspect it'll be burned to a cinder!

My only niggle was that the captions could have been left on the screen a tad longer - especially SWKA & ANGLERS AFLOAT (because people are not familiar with the initials they take a bit longer to read). A good ruile of thumb is to make sure they are on screen for at least as long as it takes you to read them out loud.

when i was on the water, the boat owner said.. If you get any film of the boat , would you be kind enough to send it to me...well!!! rude not to really :lol: I did suggest that a little bit of speed would help :lol: :lol:

anyway!!!!!! NO STABILISATION used..just handheld..so be gentle :lol: as peter has said...Rough footage

I've just watched your film John. Very good for hand held on a moving boat.
I'm not sure everyone will agree with me, but I think stabilisation would have spoilt the 'being thereness' of the film.
