  1. Good use of the agent here - short and a lovely tone to her piece - obviously the wind noise on the mic is not great, so maybe look at a getting a little foam mic cover. Excellent drone work to set the property in its context. Inside, some nice imagery but as with a number of the films this month, to my eye it is missing those key space / light wide shots which really set the scene for a property. Actually, watching the film again, they are kind of there but I would recommend holding them longer. Again, as a common thread with many of the films here, the cutting is quick all the time and it gives me a general impression of the house / its decor but lacks the time for those 'wow' key moments which I'm certain a house like this will have.

  2. I agree with Hamish. Imagery is good and video does nice job to show the property. But, the video comes up short on the "wow" factor. This home and setting are very emotional. So you have to shoot and edit with all that in mind. I like to make a list of what's really important. (the view, the sounds of the beach, the quietness of the setting, the interior spaces) Those are why people will buy this home and almost in that order. So shoot and edit with those things in mind. It's a simple home so make the video revolve about the key components with shots from the list. The use of sounds is so important here. The waves, the birds, the bugs, and those should not be drowned out by the dramatic music. I found the music just didn't work. To me, a softer classical piece would have complemented the video better. I feel a buyer of this home is wanting it to get away. Find peace and tranquility. So make the video with that in mind.
