Yeah, for camera work you should just pick a side and stick with it if the line is generally pretty straight. The less camera movement the better.

Welcome to goonskate. As a rule of thumb, I wouldn't change the filming side more than once in a video.

I like the tail tap at the end of the rail, would have been better with just an ollie to 50-50, and i have the same issues with the swooping cameras. not awful though

Looks like I'm not the only person who had a problem with the camera.

Also, that first grind was a bit too long.

I wouldn't quite agree with jonypawks - you don't necessarily have to pick an angle and stick with it, but I would definitely avoid the circling camera you've got going on here. Reminds me of Lakitu from MArio 64.

Really, the camerawork is pretty good, except you switch sides of the skater too much. You switch from his front and back like 6 times. You did the switches well, just too many of them. Try and find one angle that will capture an entire sequence well. For instance, your first double heel to 50-50 to heel has 3 camera angles throughout, but maybe just staying frontside the whole time would've been better, and less disorienting.

Thanks boys. I was trying to give the idea of the camera sort of flying around but I guess it does make it very unrealistic. I always try to avoid flipping too much but I get addicted to flips :(

Yeah, cameras are way too swoopy back and forth; I know that can be difficult to control but it's worth redoing to avoid that.

I dunno about tagging that second rail out of the first grind, it looked a little sloppy but I could see that being a matter of taste. I might avoid the double heelflip to grind to heelflip out too.

pretty swoopy cameras but some nice gaps; it looked pretty unrealistic but i don't care because i really liked the gap out of the 50-50 over the second rail
