Good job with color correction. Editing seems solid if not a little over done with the "cut back replays" but I'd have to watch it again with sound to see if its to match the beat/feel of the music.

My main critic would be a lack of what is important. A car video is often watched for one thing, what someone would like to do with it, but can't. We can all admire a car, but not everyone can abuse and enjoy a car. That is why the Gymkahana videos are superbly popular. Though I understand that not all of use can find a car/driver that we can film, without it I would abbreviate the length of the video since there is no "payoff."

Good use of a slider, though there are some "boring shots" such as push ins on the tailpipe and steering wheel. If this is a "glory" shoot, these are rarely "sexy" parts of a car and should rarely be used unless they are exceptional sculpted. Although there is some very noticeable shake in many of the shots using the slider. I'd suggest a stabilization, or reviewing shots on set to see when you have a shot that has unacceptable or uncorrectable amount of shake.

Hopefully this helps and I hope this helps you produce even better works in the future.

Your welcome. Hopefully it helps in some way. Keep filming and don't stop. The things that make us better is experience. Get it however you can. Even if you are doing for yourself.
