Great audio, what did you record that with? I like the location and feel, only thing I didn't really dig was the zooming in and out, wish that were smoother.

I don't think that was location sound... I think it was a mix of location sound (mostly initially) then faded out at :11... and back in again at 3:46... although you could probably get audio like that if you put a lav in the curve of the guitar... the curve above the sound-hole closer to her mouth.

Thanks for the comments. Audio was Zoom H4N with sennheiser lav clipped on her collar and zoom mic off camera to the left.

Yes, I wish the zooming was smoother as well. Either I need to sharpen my skills or a acqure a real cinema zoom lens. One of those things will become a reality some day.

banjo licks on an acoustic- sick

solution for zooms- lose them. (Purely creative preference)-I think a piece like this doesn't require them, manual zooms that far in and out feel like 6 o'clock news ENG style, "what's going on in your part of town"-- I think hand held shots work, and frankly are accepted cinematically, but as soon as you link a hand held shot to a hand held manual zoom, it screams "home vid" if you know what I mean

That being said- I like the piece a lot, the setting, lighting, sound, performance it's all there, I would just personally cut around the zooms, i.e. cut wide to tight, vice versa....again it's all preference

Good luck, keep shooting, keep editing, and keep smiling:)

cheers
