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.

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.
