nice remake of the Desire series. This was good, even though it was a bit rough around the edges, like the voiceover when he won the Universal title that just randomly got cut short or when some hiccups with the flow/sync. Overall I quite enjoyed it tho. Also liked that you made it a bit longer than the original format, made it seem more like its own thing rather than a remake. The ending was awkward with that hard cut to the song name again. I think you should have at least let the song calm down first and then show the song again.

Besides the intro, this was all over the place for me and I feel like you lost a bit of control when the song started to really kick in, both in syncing and pacing aspects. I wouldn't speed up too many clips when they don't need to be sped up, like with moves for example. It throws off the flow of your video quite a bit. The faster you go, the more difficult to make it look smooth and seamless. It's always hard for freestyle videos to make a mark, especially in competitions.

I pretty much share the same overall sentiment with SWL on your video I don't really have anything to say that he didn't.

Your pace and sync as SWL mentioned really hurt this, your effects were pretty nice albeit a little unpolished I think you need to try new things when it comes to your syncing/pace but the clip selection was at times where the video shined the link from Michaels to Lesnar, for example, looked rather nice and that camera pulling out scene to Charlotte.

Solid watch overall. Editing was a little underwhelming, especially considering that you're capable of doing better than what's shown here. Thought your timing was off for most of this though it did get better as the video went on. Enjoyed the way you captured his eventual return from injury, just felt the payoff was a little flat cause most of your clips to end this was him flailing his arms. Just lacked the action that was needed imo and the pacing was a bit too slow for my liking. Graphic came in a bit too early as well as it cut off what could've been a strong finish to end this.

Not a bad video overall, just pay more attention to the details.

Thought you showed more control during the slower sections of the song (0:00-0:36 & 1:29-end). Felt you couldn't handle the sudden change of pace at the start and really threw off your editing for most of the video.
