I agree - very nice.
The only thing I would say was that the use of the wide angle - or rather the distortion that came with it - felt off. It may be subliminally off-putting and that's something a financial institution really doesn't want. Maybe a couple of the shots needed the wide angle because of lack of space - the one that springs to mind was the couple talking to the employee in the office - but others like the wide view of the car detailer didn't. Know what I mean?
The use of the 7-14mm is inappropriate. The purpose of that lens is to get as much scene in as possible so as to show the audience. Using a more normal lens would have achieve the same objective for those extra wide shots.
Great work allround. If you're open to it, I have a few remarks (otherwise disregard the following)
+ great, great editing. Especially the closer up interviews and back and forth sequences are spot on.
+ camera positions and solid dolly work give it a smooth, professional and finished look (although depending on budget, rent a crane for that opening sequence since the dolly JUST doesn't get high enough).
+ lighting is really good on the interviews. Nice balance with the ambient background although I did see some highlights on a face in one of the earlier interview shots.
- wide angle is bit too wide on the interiors. I think a moderate 24 - 35mm equivalent focal length (so 12 - 35mm) is the widest I'd use indoors, especially when panning.
- some color grading on the front facade shots that seemed a bit out of place. I'd try to keep everything in one style. This is a bit like using multiple fonts on a paper.
Thanks for sharing.
