    just because of the awesome PBJ song, and that one other song... and
    that bit about gum, i'd give it a 10 on the comedic gold scale, and an
    8.5 in the Uni vid category.
    definately a keeper.

    I liked your good tricks. The sequence of 180 uni spins was impressive,
    as were the hop-on-seat combinations, as was the stand up wheel walk.
    However, showing them in a video alongside clips of you hopping
    one-at-a-time up a set of four stairs threw me off. Basically, without
    those advanced moves you did, your video was kind of a "just another
    guy that has been riding for a year or two and is making his first
    video" kind of thing. Adding those big stand up wheel walk//180 unispin
    combos changes the entire tone of the video... I'm not sure if i'm
    being clear enough, or too harsh, but i really don't think that stand
    up wheel walking belongs in the same video as riding backwards (and
    vice versa). You know what i mean? Also, a tripod would really help you
    out a lot. Regarding editing: Complicated tranistions draw attention to
    the transition, rather than the footage. If that is your goal, for
    example if you had two love-themed shots (or a moment in the song),
    then a heart shaped scene out would make more sense. But when the
    purpose of your video seems to be "here's what i can do, what do you
    like, how can i learn to do things better," then the transitions
    distract rather than help. But that's just me being nitpicky, having
    just watched Shaun Johanneson's video (http://tinyurl.com/ae2lk. It's a
    mind-blowing video that is edited very simply. woah!

    Don't take me too harshly--you pull some sick tricks in your video. i
    wish i could 180 unispin or stand up wheel walk or .. .. .. It's just
    that you asked for feedback, and i figgured being critical would be
    more helpful to you than saying "best video ever! i loved it! perfect
    ten!" Know what i'm sayin'?

    I liked the video, it was good for a first video. it's sad to see that
    unicycling is getting to the point where people are no longer
    supportive other people. it's even worse to see that some people are
    taking a complete negitive view of anyone that they deam is not as
    "good" as them. I am sure there are some tricks in that movie that you
    can't do maxis, that stand up wheel walk was awesome! I guess people
    don't realize that it's the new people the people who sustain the
    sport. buying new unicycles, learning giving us a new point of view.
    with out people getting into unicycling we would not have profile hubs,
    we would not have KH products or koxx or any of that. I think people
    need to remember that just 6 years ago ryan atkins had never even tried
    trials. Jeff groves had never even ridden a B.C wheel! universe 1 had
    not been shot. and just 11 years before that Kris holm had never seen a
    unicycle. I guess what i am trying to say is we all have to start
    somewhere, moreover just becasue someone isn't the best does not mean
    anyone has the right to pick on them or to be mean or rude. I would
    also like to add that well the new people are well new... doesn't mean
    they won't soon be beter then everyone else! i personally think that if
    this person's "new" that he is going to go a long way. It's a new
    sport, be nice!!!! don't let it become like skate boarding!!! or many
    of the other extreme sports!

    P.S i think that no one should use this site to be rude, it's not the
    spirt of this site!

    I think you went overboard with the cuts / transitions. Waaay
    overboard. Some of the cuts were way too short. I felt like I was
    watching a commercial on TV.

    I was just wondering why you have a trials uni, as you're obviously more
    of a freestyle person. The movie itself isn't one I'll be watching
    again, and again, but very few movies do that for me. Ofcourse, I'm not
    one to pass judgement as I have no movies of my own out there right now
    ;) (Will have one out, as soon as I can pick up a decent camera).

    hey dude... i know that everyone is entitled to their own opinions and
    all.

    that why in my opinion i think it was way better than the only stuff
    i've ever see maxisback do... which is like 180 5 stairs and clear 7.
    two words for that BOR-ING.
    and no tresspassing signs are cool... so is getting arested for
    smashing a cops windshield with a uni i guess... but how far are you
    willing to go with this?

    shut up

    way better than my first video man... keep it up

    Most of the people watching your movie are -not- haters. I started
    watching the film, but it was like zillions of others that I've seen
    before, so I stopped it short. That means no disrespect to you or your
    riding skills. I have been riding for about 8 months, an I still can't
    go round corners properly!

    Don't take what maxis says to heart - he often comes across as negative
    even when he's being positive! I for one regard him as a bit of a
    'local character' and the fora wouldn't be the same without him.

    Above all don't feel that you are getting flamed for your first movie.

    Keep riding.

    I think that if you ask people to rate it against defect then you won't
    get as many positive comments. Yours is more beginner level stuff and
    Defect is the best production film to date. So people shouldn't upset
    when max rates it really low.
