Dis you hand hold the camera? Far too much movement in the cafe, also images do not look sharp in the cafe!
Later on you have a color shift & after that unfortunately I got bored! Your sound was very good.

Thanks for taking the time to watch this Ray. Yes, I was hand-holding in the cafe. I'm generally not a fan of that look, and would have preferred to set up better shots on tripod, etc., but unfortunately our original venue fell through, and we didn't actually have permission to shoot in this cafe, so things had to be kept discreet... it's unfortunate that this means the worst footage therefore comes at the beginning of the film. I'm much happier with the camera work in the second half of the film, but oh well.

Lesson learned: shooting "guerrilla-style" is not an acceptable substitute for a proper location that will let you set up tripods and lights...
