So I tried my best to shorten the 12 minute video down even further. the to try something new I used the audioswap feature on youtube which basically just replaces the audio with music.
I just hit "I feel lucky", got some heavy metal tune I had never heard of before, but it seemed to match the video so I just kept it after making a few tweaks to get the intro to match. But I don't think its the way to go but it wasn't a bad first effort. I need to do something where I can lay background music but also get the important sounds of the environment like drags screaming, fish splashing, me scremaing in pain as I whack my leg with the fish bonker. lol.
So here's the two minute practice video. I'll post below that the original 12 minute highlight video. I wanted to keep all the clips ones I shot with my gopro (The 720p version). So a few clips have been removed and a few added. tried to emulate a few for the editing tricks I saw in the go pro ad like stop frame, speed up and stop, etc. I thought it turned out ok. So here it is:
And here below is the original 12 minute version:
Here's the KILLER Gopro ad that was the inspiration:
