Rough Cut Feedback for We Are Ultras Project

-There was good information, quotes and people. The same b-roll was used.-More background information needs to be provided.

-Try to break away from the interview setting sometimes.

-Apply clean audio in order for it to sound more clear.

-There was good general information, but not enough about the core concept for the 1906 Ultras.

-There needs to be more meat in the body of the whole project.

-Have the subjects talk about something else besides the 1906 Ultras.

-There needs to be some soccer moments involved throughout the film.

-Bring the viewer into the world more slowly.

-The film needs to equal the energy and spirit of the motion of what is happening throughout the course of the film.

-The Portland Incident can be grouped into a stronger segment and it will help keep the pacing and the rhythm of the entire film.

-Cut and trim the film into smaller parts.

-Work more on organizing a paper edit and try to come up with a good structure for a good intro, body and conclusion.
