A short documentary I shot over two days for the band I work for whilst they recorded their new EP.
What do you think of the documentary?

I think you have almost every aspect of a great doc, but the one thing missing is the backstory/story. Next time in the beginning (along with your current clips) have some introductions to the people we are seeing, You want use the viewer to be attached to the people we are seeing, we need to feel emotions about the people. Currently it just shows a group of people who I dont know their names and Im not 100% sure what they are doing really.

Being a director and editor this can easily be forgotten about, because you as the director were there to see everything that didn't make it in the movie, but we as the audience only get to see what you show.

Hope that made sense and Help!
