August 2019 - The "Monsoon Season" of Bangladesh

About the Image(s)

This video presentation is made on the "Monsoon Season" of Bangladesh. I have never done an assignment on videography like this before. I am fairly new on this.
This was shoot by iPhone -8S, with out using any tripod and gimbal. It was done on a monsoon morning in the city of Dhaka. The Monsoon season from Bangladesh,is about to have transformation in to a new season called Autumn. The concept was how the monsoon morning unfolds in Dhaka city. This was edited by "Adobe Premiere Pro cc" editing software. We have collected some copy right free appropriate themed sounds, from internet to use it while editing. The associated image for the video presentation on "Monsoon Morning" is as attached as requested.

I very much enjoyed your video. For your first video, for our PSA site, you did very well. There could have been more transitions, like a fade in or out, between scenes to help break up the video. I loved the music, it was was perfect for the subject.

Speaking of the subject, Monsoon Season. I experienced the Monsoons in Vietnam many years ago, during the war in 1968 and 1969. My memories of the monsoons was that the rain was much harder than in your video. The rain in your video looks like a soft gentle rain and my memory was of rain that was so hard that you could hardly see. Is my memory deceiving me or is this just a mild monsoon day.

You did a very nice job shooting hand held with no tripod or gimbal.

I felt that it could have been a little longer, it was only minute and 30 seconds. It was done so beautifully that I wanted to see more.

Thank you very much sir, for your kind appreciation. Yes we do have heavy rains in our country. You are right as this is just a mild monsoon morning. I wanted to capture the beauty of soft drizzling and the city monsoon morning. I will remember in future and definitely will follow yours lead and suggestions during my assignments. I hope you have a lovely day ahead. Thanks and sincere regards.   Posted: 08/14/2019 03:09:36

As Dick says you did very well for first video! I really love it. In 1'29" footage you have 18 video clips totally. Averagely each clip has less 5". Its frequent change makes the attraction to audience from beginning to the end. Will be expecting more quality video work in future.   Posted: 08/14/2019 17:24:59

Welcome to the group Syed. I really like your video, how you have taken a very simple subject and made it interesting. What did you use to record the natural background sound? I like how you incorporated it with the music.   Posted: 08/30/2019 17:16:04

Thank you sir, for your kind words. Appreciate your liking my small effort. The natural background sound was recorded by iPhone8s mobile phone. As you know, the morning was quite due to very early morning time. The music is copy right free from net. Thanks for all your comment.   Posted: 08/31/2019 00:30:34
