This has got some really nice bits and pieces to make up cool HTF vid. Nice work! Especially the edit between 80's Queen starting up and editing straight into the "rich or poor.." bit.

Now, on a critical level, there's not much to say, but here goes...

When Paul joins in on the second verse, the slow-y vids fading in and out with Fred or John seemed out of place. All the ones before this had worked nicely.

There were also a couple of confusing cuts, e.g. Brian running out onto the catwalk, then we cut to see 80's Brian standing still with the other guitarist playing away. Just a little confusing.

And lastly, there's a really fast edit that seems out of place at 7:56 where the Q+PR bit behind the drum kit shows for like a second. Had it not been a smooth moving shot faded in and then cut back out, it might've worked better. And longer than a split second showing.


Anyway, great stuff. Now, THIS is a great example of a mix video. All video/audio mixers, take note..!

Adam.

Mercury 90, thank you so much for all your great work! how long did this project take btw?
I've just finished watching it and I loved it all especially the slow motion clips of Wembley along with the Q+PR show, that was beautifully done and very poignant. The original Hammer to Fall was so much fun to watch and your great editing and nice split screens complimented that perfectly :)

It was just two days or three, but I had not the time to encode and upload it!;)

Excellent work! A couple of awkward cuts, as has been pointed out, but still a great job of splicing the two videos into one! Thanks for this--I'll be saving it!
