    These are very good suggestions. I really appreciate them. I had already thought about the room-size issue. That was very limiting. I also agree that the length of this video was a bit much. When I started the project I told everyone that maximum the pieces should last 3 minutes. But some of...

    I already apologized. I do so again. I do ask that you accept it and leave it at that. I do feel at a disadvantage that my real name is being used here and yet I don't know who you are. This is not a fair exchange. And for what its worth... To me rudeness is not acknowledging when some has...

    I am american as well. Dual citizen. So don't start with that one. I'm in no mood for racist people as well. Dealing with online Bullies is enough. I don't know if you all noticed but this thread has been way too hostile from the beginning. I don't understand what the big deal is. I shared a...

    I thought it was against forum policies to self promote websites. Besides, I didn't come here for that. We've had a tremendous amount of traffic in these 4 days thanks to Facebook and people sharing the videos (for example, the one involving Zombies has been seen in more than 30 countries so...

    Hahaha That is too funny!!! That's my website!! And I assure you they are not national champions. These are all dancers from my home state in Mexico. Don't let the word "Nacional" throw you off. The intention is that my website will eventually cover more states but I started with one (the site...

    ??? I don't follow. What project was it meant for? It is a general demo for nothing in particular. Or do you have some information I don't have?

    Those are really good examples. Great videos. I can see what you mean.

    I wanted to thank you all. This second page has yielded some excellent specific advice. Just what I was hoping. Next time I will help them with the choreography as well and work on these points. I agree that the story, emotion, music and movement are not integrated. There are a couple spots...

    It's just a demo not meant for anything specific. It's just them dancing. It's a good way for them to see themselves and how they look. I guess it's part of the learning process.

    It was filmed with a Panasonic HVX200. It's a camera from about 7 yars ago but which offers really good quality. The music was replaced with the one from a cd when I was editing. You are right about the headroom. It was a constrain from the space which we had available. I couldn't move back any...

    Actually, re-reading your post, your comment about filling up time with moves instead of dancing is real, solid advise. That I agree with.

    In that case it would be my fault and not theirs, since I was the one to suggest it. And I am not a dancer. It's not fair to take it out on them. If you are still willing to share some real feedback that could actually help them, that would be great.

    You are right on that one. But I still fail to see how this is a realty check. It's not like anyone here was delusional about their abilities ;)

    Defensive? Not really. I'm actually starting to like you. You're like one of those entrenched guardian characters that one encounters in the netherworld of every forum that one must get past in order to enter the kingdom. But your unfiltered and tactless comments actually end up helping in the...
