Hi Guys,

Just finished making and adding to my website a new Promo video (close-up magic). What are your thoughts?

P.S: My 2007 Kids Promo Video is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8k2S5Dkn0j0
I'll be updating that one as well as soon as I have more footage.

Nice video.

I would just add:
1 - client testimonials - ideally video
2 - something to show your personality (speaking clips, speak to the camera)

Great video. I aspire to have mine look as good some day. I'm with Scott...I'd love to hear a clip of your patter on an affect or two and maybe some audience response as well. I know it takes a bit of work to capture all of that and edit it. But, for now....be proud. You look great.

I liked it Steve and I agree with Scott.

It should definitely boost sales, as is, for now. Good work!

Looks great Steve - that music is really good too.

Here's a suggestion. A message shows this:

"Many TV Appearances - Including Britain's Got Talent."

If you've got 7 or more TV appearances - I think that's compelling enough to use the actual number in the message. Specifics are more compelling than the term "Many".

"9 TV Appearances - Including Britain's Got Talent."

Maybe sprinkle some quoted testimonials and who they are from, organization, etc into the video between clips of you instead of actual speaking videos. That should be simple enough if you don't want to break the rhythm of the video. Some nice compelling quotes that fade in and out.

Great video overall though.

Cheers for the feedback. There are lots of videos with me talking on them, so a little searching on my actual site will show the clients those effects. I wanted this video to just excite them with visual effects.

As for testimonials, again they are on the website. I didn't think about them at the time of creating the video, so I might add some in the next one I do. I don't think it needs them as they are on the site to be read but It won't hurt me to add a single page in the video text parts with three of them on I suppose.

Cheers for your comments.
