I think his name starts with "A" and ends in "ndrew Kramer"...

I liked it, too. But there can a little more action I think.
The end was great

Even if you don't have more shots you could still do more and faster cuts. The music is really upbeat, but the editing is slow. Are you allowed to tweak and play with the footage you have? Maybe put some very subtle effects on a few of the shots to make them look slightly different? The ending is very cool though. Good job.

Hey,

I think it needs to pick up the pace a bit. Depends if you have more footage, but i'd definitely add more shots of the player. I did a show open that might help you as far as pacing. Ignore the interlacing issues, I was an amateur when I created it and didn't know how to shift fields. Music with distinctive beats definitely help make for better cuts.

I gotta say I pretty much agree with everyone else. It's cool but maybe more action or something.
The reset button was my idea.

i think you could make the video in the end a little slower, while the still images pop up. cause its a little bit rushed. use the time remap function and slow it down a little while the stills are created.
also you could color correct it a little, add a contrast curve in the end, so the stills come out better. also try decreasing the opacity of the footage while the stills pop up.
the stills could also become a little bigger after they pop up out of the video. this way you'll add a little more movement.
also try to make the foreground stills a little brighter then the background stills.
you could also add a stroke around the stills with photoshop, export it as a seperate layer and then use the write on/stroke effect to paint it around the stills while they pop up.

just some quick ideas ;)
