Promo video

My brother is a commercial photographer and I had the chance to have him produce a promo video to put on my website. I have a few small changes for him to make but I was wondering if any of you can give me some honest feedback of what you think about it.

thanks

Nice Bruce. Without making it stand out: before you buy from a standard kitchen shop, check out what you can get custom designed, the quality, the perfect fit! You would be surprised and sure you would enjoy custom.

I found the music to be to loud for you voice when i was listening, it was hard for me to understand what you were saying. Other than that i think the context was good and the finish product shots are nice but i like before and after shots.

Yes I know about spelling thanks B&M Woodworking and the town names will be different yep
I mentioned to him about the volume , I agree
I tried to find a more acoustic guitar background but could not , maybe some talented musician could record something for me

I am not a good public speaker
I need to speak clearer not like monotone Bill Belichick

All this was off the cuff
If I had more preparation I think it could be a better message

Bruce, the speaking part is good, you don't come off as salesy, which is key. And it shows you care about your work. Too polished and it might take away from the feel of it. Really nice stuff by a guy who cares about the work, not all about how much he can charge.

No way! It makes it more real this way. Too professional speaking and its takes away from the realness. People can relate to this. You don't want to be Billy Mays! I think it's great

What I like about it is, someone meeting you for the first time after watching the video isn't going to say "you're nothing like the guy in the video". That's definitely you!!!

I agree with Skippy, lower the background music should be lowered and slow down the credits at the end.

ok, to be Honest

ditto on the music volume| your speaking part excellent
now ...being an art enthusiast ....
i think the picture of the bright green room
should be CUT out of the video completely because it's a distraction
making you "not" focus on your Cabinet work

instead your saying to yourself as you look around
(who in their right mind would paint a living room that color)

this is what it shoulda/coulda looked like (quicky example ok)


with the normal wall color you focus on the carpentry MORE

ps if you'll notice in that picture
the walls and ceiling are reflecting green shadows onto the white cabinet color
making them look not as beautiful as they actually are
where as a light blue would compliment the white finish

The walls are not as vivid as it shows in a picture, kind of like when you take a picture of the sunrise, in real life it is not as vivid or red as it shows up on the photo. If you saw the room in person you would agree the color looks great in this home.

Others have said something about it being a distraction but honestly, the shot is not there that long of a time period.
