Agree with the comments so far.

How about including some of the major elements of the PB2 course - so you are giving people an idea of what you are offering - maybe just as 10 second sections in the video with a caption ?

I did think of that but could turn into a training video all I wanted was a taster to whet the appetite .

It is hard to get the right level basic bumps and grinds and some speed is what I feel gives a taster after that I fill in all the gaps also a training vid like suggested would be abit long.

Ticked the boxes for me. Words may be better but imo not a real necessity - after all, the words are on the rest of the website. As a prospective customer, your place looks good, the boat looks good and you (or your instructor) don't seem to be terrifying the ladies, so my wife would be happy to come too. No razz ma tazz. I felt I would get just what it said on the tin.

That's a fair comment: but both crew should be seen to be helming. We've yet to see Jane behind the wheel.

I know you are right Dave but for some reason they were cut to try and make it short and sweet , I dont want to remake it but in hindsight I should have had more input in the final edit .


I will stick Jane on the Motor Boat Video when we get round to it , I dont think she wants to be in the PWC /Jetski video .

All comments are taken onboard for me it looked ok but that was from an Instructors point of veiw , what I need and am getting is what customers want to see or hear so very positive feed back as to how to make it better.

Thanks for everyones help.
Tim

Agree the seaweed has to go, some of the scenes were about a second too short in my opinion, but everyone's different.

Tim, the wife thinks two girls is a bit 'cheesy' and agrees with the seaweed comments. She likes the higher speed stuff and where it shows you giving direct instruction as it is more in keeping with the tuition you offer.

A female point of view whether you wanted it or not!

All comments appreciated mate

I have had some interesting feed back some good some bad, some saying I dont promote all the courses I run or myself enough.
Others saying its total crap and should be re done.

I had the video shot two years ago as it's been kicking around in drawer for a while now, and am trying to think of way's to promote the school with out going ott sounding big headed or self promoting as I hate that.

But next week I am told the voice over will be done so looking forward to the comments that come out of it.

Cheers Tim
