Ha! this is brilliant! Just saw tonight's episode and wanted to watch the whole video.... Glad I did, I love Har Mar and I love the Gadget Show, so I'm double pleased. Seriously, I'm inspired to make a short film now as I've been thinking about it for ages but have £0 budget - this shows you don't need one, thanks! x

Great vid... reminds me of the vids from my youth (in the late 80's) ... different to what we are all used to now. Great effort, hampered by the fact harmar wasnt there during the bmx/board shoot as having him there would have made the video flow better between scenes. Still, it was the vid I chose to view first to see what you could achieve with joe public tech.

Great video that was full of creativity given the tech that you had. Most people could produce a polished looking video given a professional crew and "techno" cranes! But you managed to pull off a natural and captivating vid that has a gritty and tangible feel to it that matches the music. If you had used the same kit as Suzi for that shoot probably wouldn't of been a doubt over it. Well done.

I think the judges missed the point. They talked about what video would get a music contract, surely the imagination of Jason's told more of a story and was more intuitive whereas Suzi's (I love you by the way) was far too polished and something you would produce (or the music company themselves i.e. re shoot) once you have a music contract. It's all about getting noticed at the end of the day and I think Jason had it by a mile. Rage against the machine!

I loved the edgy feel to it, didn't feel manufactured but an honest roots grown video. But to rip the story line apart... she hangs around his bar, and sits and stands around the skate park where he rides etc... She didn't need to be impressed, she already fancied Harmar, and was just playing hard to get!

Well done Jason, I think that in the circumstances you did a better job. I was impressed with Suzi's vid, but how much of that was down to her direction? How much 'assistance' did she get from the professionals she worked with. I think the naturalistic look of Jason's video worked really well with his idea and the video would have looked wrong with the professional sheen given to Suzi's. With a bit of help from some pros (art direction, camera, lighting etc) I think Jason would have won.

Jason your video rocks and should have won the challenge, especially when you consider the low tech self edited aspects. It showed great imagination and gave life to a fairly mediocre song. Suzies was good but had that mass produced performance video look which is impressive technically but not that memorable (Sorry Suzie)

For a video shot using high-street equipment and technology, this is brilliant. The use of the helicopter was a good touch as well, personally I feel this video should of won, because it is different than everything else, rather than the staged, typical performance video, of Fightstar. But saying that, the reasons given for Suzi winning were fair, if this was re-shot using professional equipment, Suzi wouldn't of stood a chance. Better luck next time... thetutorialandreview.com

Awesome vid Jason. It's amazing what you accomplished in one day, especially since you had to fill in all of those roles. Personally, I would have done 3 things differently: - Some shots were stuttering. Was this intentional? Or am I wrong and I have a bad internet connection? - I would have the stunt guys trying to impress the girl still, but I would have them fall over and fail at first. As the video would progress, they would pull off their stunts better and he'd eventually pull the girl. - There was slightly too many shots of that ladies' bottom. Jason, you!

I think you did an outstanding job dude given the fact you did it all yourself (with a bit of help from some friends). I really enjoyed being taken through the story. Only thing I think it was missing was a close up of harmar as he walks out of the door with the girl - maybe giving a wee close up wink to the camera? Maverick performance!

a test of a good video is do you keep watching even if the song is not to your taste. in this case, Suzi's didn't keep me watching. its slick, but consumers have seen slick, polished, for years where as Jasons video is fun , keeps you watching. as others have said its got that viral video look... you want to see more

This wasn't really a contest as such - the music industry prides itself on its creativity and originality, but most music videos are predictable and generic beyond words. Suzi was always going to win because music industry bods will look for a common language and cues that they recognise: polished, professional, bland. I think the result kind of sums it all up: presentation is more important than style, content, ideas or originality. But well done Suzi anyway.

Jason U RoK! McFly would spend zillions to get the same result - and they would employ some high-end director with bleeding edge tech... and a real helicopter to justify his production budget... BTW Do you think Harmar looks a lot like Ron Jeremy? Maybe that's why he missed the shoot? Best Music Video of the Week

Suzi's looked just like a professional video, was expertly and slickly made...and a bit boring if you didn't like the song or band. Jason's was rough and ready, but much more engaging, and in a world when bands can launch themselves via YouTube or MySpace, perfect for attracting attention! I loved the slow motion sections, and the aerial shots worked really well too!

Fantastic Video Jason. well paced, fun and retro kept me engaged right to the credits, brought me back to the early days of music videos and i think you might need to thank " A E I O U" by Freeze for some influence in your styling, I used to make short films in the 90`s and this has reminded me that you don`t need a big budget or a cast of thousands just the ability to turn a problem into a challenge, an accident/mistake into a feature and over all a sense of humor, shine on jay you crazy diamond......

+1 to Mikey_Co above. "Suzy's" vid (I wonder how much input she really had) was polished but predictable and cliched. Jason's had his fingerprints all over it, was packed with invention, cost nowt and was a clear winner. Bob on!

A really entertaining video, not like all the other over polished stuff with no imagination! (Sorry Suzie) The xsperts went for the typical run-off-the-mill production... but... if this is what you do with a small budget, let's see what you can do with the extra benefit next time?!

Sorry, Suzi baby but Jason's vid is way better. What were those guy's thinking! Jason's had a narrative, ideas and humor. Suzi's was just a a band shoot with no ideas at all. People do seem to be increasingly more impressed with production values than ideas now. The amount of tweenagers I hear cooing over lame overdone effects in movies etc. Let's get back to ideas in art! Kudos to Har Mar for using the word 'soliloquy' in a song too.
