I have more a general observation. I’m somewhat reluctant to say it because you’ve surely put a lot of work in to almost all these shots, but I’ll go ahead since you say you want feedback. In my humble opinion — and maybe it’s just me, maybe no one else thinks so — there’s just a little too much packed into this opening of the movie, are too many shots, almost as if you’re making sure to include every possible thing that could fit, but I think this is at the sacrifice of an easier flow for the audience.

E.g., the dam scene (from 2:13:17 to 3:12:13) has 31 shots. That’s a lot for under one minute, but it’s not a huge sin in and of itself. Still, removing three or four of the more redundant/repeating ones (such as toward the end of the scene, with the multiple views of the same thing: the water crashing over and cars flying) might help ease audience fatigue perhaps? I mean, this whole opening of the movie is 17 minutes long, and contains a lot, so everything you have should not fall in the category of being redundant…because all that running time here and we haven’t even hit the main movie yet. (Another little example spot in this regard that pinged me was at 12:29:04, where you have two shots of the ship flying in the high atmosphere. It seems that one would be just fine.)

But, again, maybe this all is just me. If someone wants to chime in and disagree, totally cool by me 😃

I really hope I’m not dis-spiriting you. This is really neat work! 😃 Just needs a little smidge of tightening is my thought, my two cents. Shutting up now 😃

LightWave = fun times with gfx for me 😃

These are my comments, if these are individual shots I would edit as follows, if this the beginning of the movie and flows as the video I would reduce and trim a lot more and add louder superman music to the background to ensure it all flows better as a recap.

101.23 – remove poor SFX shot, colours don’t appear to match and stands out/takes you out of the movie.
101.44 – remove or recolour SFX shot
101.53 – The glow on the rocket needs movement looks to static
102.46 – remove this shot as doesn’t match the others and stands out to much
103.02 – remove this shot, not needed and speed looks an issue.
(the destruction scene that follows substitute this music for something else of the superman soundtracks as the music is end of world and not Superman)
103.31 – trim this shot by a second so not to focus on the matte effect
103.35 – remove duplicate shot
103.48 – trim the scene, remove section when camera follows inside the building, and resume 103.58
104.06 – remove superman from this shot, he appears way to bright and the main image to pale and superman just seems to appear mid shot.
105.24 – the rocket glow to pale and need sound of the rocket engine cutting out to sell the shot.
105.47 – remove the final blue wave before the glass explodes as looks out of place to the rest of the shot just before.
(personal choice but I would add in the scream of Free when the glass explodes, can see you marked the shot not complete and the matte work on the original does need work as some of the characters appear to bright against the space background.)
107.39 – remove ship top of the screen, scene to busy

(Over the credits I would reduce some of the spoken words in the background and let the images do the taking, example the pimp talking to superman about bad outfit and the rescue of Louis, trim the scenes and let the image talk, some throw you out the school bus another example, tension has built then we appear to have a happy comment hey there’s Superman tone down some of the soundbites)

If this is the beginning of the movie in this order from a personal choice I would start with the Kyrpton trial and feed directly into the credits but utilise your hard word on the above and blend some of these scenes into the credits with the Superman theme and lose some of the others example the school bus on the bridge and carry on the destruction of the dam snippets may look more powerful in less is more and the villains flying to the moon as the music fades out.

Here is some general feedback.

I can see that you are very talented! But you need to remember that this is basically a period piece. This movie was done in the 1980 and it will show that. So when I see cars and clothing that are obviously more modern, it takes me out of the movie. I’m not saying that you can’t use shots with modern FX, but be careful of the close ups.

Also it personally feels like there is a lot of Superman just flying around and not actually doing anything with the destruction happening around him. I don’t want to take anything away from the work you are doing and I hope I don’t sound too harsh, but it was feedback like this that helped me to step back from what I was doing and see things from another perspective. I know sometimes I’m too close to it and I don’t always see what everyone else does.

In the end, you really just have to make the movie YOU want. It’s your edit and you are only sharing it with us.

Keep up the amazing work!
