Do you think this will work?

Firstly, I wasn't too sure where to put this, so I thought that the OT forum seemed best!

It's basically a video that I've edited (from a template), in order to hopefully push sales.

What do you think of it? Anything that you don't like? Thoughts would be very much appreciated

It's also low-key marketing, so I'm not too worried about the whole copyright issue with the BBC, CNN, The Gadget Show, UPS branding.

    Music is a bit annoying.

      I like the video but have to agree with Jonathan. The music was beyond annoying, I think if I listened to it for a bit longer I would have developed a headache.

      I think if you find different music, you could do quite well!

      Good luck on your endeavor!

      I agree with Jonathan.
      The thing is I thought it went with the video.
      The video itself I thought was well done though.

    Yeah - good luck with that. I'm thinking it's a bit nuts to think that copyright doesn't matter right now. Size doesn't matter - it only takes being seen by the wrong person once.

      Exactly. I'm no lawyer, but as I undrerstand it they HAVE to protect their copyrights and trademarks when they find violaters or they risk losing them. Besides, little bugs are easier to squish than big bugs. You risk building a business only to lose it.

      And yes, the music is a real turn off.

      Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

  • The music might work for you Alexx, if you can mix the tracks. Take the synthesizer track down a couple of notches, bring up the base and mix the background a little bit - up and under - the swirling sound in the background and the base track can match the revolve of the phone...there might be a better passage of the song you're using...you only need :60 find a leading 10/15 sec. passage and loop it...just an idea.

    But - if you can find another suitable track, that may do you better...

    Thanks alot for all the help guys

    I've had a look in another track, and have got to say definitely prefer it. I'm going to leave both up there, and I'm promoting both, and will see which one is more popular!

      I do prefer the second one as well, however I'm not quite sure it fits the video. But if I were voting, it would be number 2 by a long shot!

      Ah, testing is a good thing. Be sure and let us know the results.

  • Nope - The second track choice is nice...if you're in a boat on Golden Pond. Too sleepy.

    It has no punch, or leading edge to propel the video...not exactly "Eye of the Tiger"...but more exciting to hold attention - (jmo)

    For example: this stupid chipmunks version of that song has a :60 lead in...
    (I'm not suggesting you use it, just an example)
    *Btw this is really stupid - why is there still an Alvin & the Chipmunks? :rolleyes:
