Well I liked it, didn't get bored. Agree with binning the seaweed shot and captioned /voice over explanation may help.

Overal good though. Sizewise it's ideal to see whats going on and the fact that videos are not on many other training sites. It shows who you are and what you do so in turn we know what to expect!

Let's face it when I did my course with you I had to look for your boat and hope you were on it because I hadn't ever actually met you!

Hi
And thanks re the video

Will speak to them and sort out a voice over introduction for the first couple of shots over the music.

I like the music myself and will see if they will bin the arty seaweed shot.

Thanks for helping out .

Jizm as I recall we had interesting sea conditions on your course but can't remember if you came to the Isle of Wight or if I came to you.

It was much nicer weather when your lovely wife and mate did their course.

Cheers
Tim

You picked me up from warsash Tim and if you had used that as your video it may have put people off! Interesting as you call it, certainly was!

Yeah, definitely.

Music on the video can be best described as 'corporate lift cheese' and puts me off. A voiceover would be far better.

Other than that and the arty seaweed shot, I rather like it!

'accommodation' in the second line after "Why Choose Us?" needs a second 'm'! It is spelt correctly elsewhere.

Agree with the need for a voiceover to reinforce the visual with audio. Short of using the video to actually show how to do it (which would remove the need to attend the course!), it's good promotion.

Missing m should go in today web designer is on the case,
Voice over should be done by next week so long as they don't make it sound too naff I will keep it on the website.

Thanks for all the comments they are useful when you see it from another angle .

Voice over I am thinking should include welome what we do and what we are going to do on the water . See vid of parking and speed then voice over as to how easy it is to get to the Island then end or something like that
Cheers
Tim
