However, the cheesy flute music, which - if they felt compelled to have it in the background at all, at least keep it soft - was way too loud and extremely distracting. If there had been more information on arranging mixed flower arrangements of various shapes and colors instead of just the one pink arrangement, we would have liked it much better. Also the sound quality in general was not good. We had to turn it all the way up and still couldn't hear it very well.
However there were many things i just did not like.
1. They show you how to make almost virtually the same bouquet 4 times. One with roses, Hyacinth, Tulips, and Hosta. All were done in the same manner. The only thing that was different was obviously the flowers and whatever they used to tie the bouquet together.
They did give you 1 mixed bouquet tutorial, though honestly i thought the bouquet looked kinda... well i dont wanna say crappy im sure many people liked the design i just thought it looked ugly in my opinion.
It would have been better had they had 2 different sections showing like 3 mixed bouquets and 3 bouquets of the same flower.
2. There was a section for floating flowers. A whole section which lasted idk somewhere around 15 minutes. Why? Idk i guess they thought it was necessary to spend a hell of a lot of time showing these types of things over anything else. I mean afterall its just a flower head (or a couple) in a square or rectangular vase with stone/crushed glass at the bottom... Why take so much time explaining and showing something that takes little to no effort to make?
3. The god awful music and editing.
Alright im no movie maker myself. I do editing on the side for my videos on youtube but what in the hell was going on here? They kept making harsh camera cuts to random shit. For example 1 guy is showing how to make a bouquet and for god knows what reason they cut to the other dude opening his mouth as if he's taking a breath and cuts straight back to the guy making the bouquet. This happens a handful of times throughout the dvd just random cuts to another part of the room for absolutely no reason. I dont get it but i gotta say it was hilarious to see.
Oh and speaking of hilarious, you can actually hear some of the people in the background (producer maybe?) at times which is very audible. Cant believe they didn't pick up on this while doing the editing.
The music hmm, well for one it was too loud which kinda interfered with the talking from the other guys. But another thing is that its annoying. Flute playing, some sort of Asian thing going on at times, and whatever else. It would not have bothered me whatsoever if it wasn't so loud.
4. The main instructor.
This guy was driving me insane when he would talk about the flowers. Almost every other sentence he would say something about the flower calling it beautiful, gorgeous, amazing, ect... I'm not disagreeing or anything, the flowers being used looked great however you dont need to constantly talk about how good they look. Its incredibly redundant and annoying to listen to.
One final complaint i had with him is that when the other guy is with him and he's explaining either what to do or whatever he's talking about. The main instructor would constantly interrupt either with "Thats beautiful Jimmy" or something else which doesnt really add anything to the presentation.
If you can look past all that annoying stuff there is some useful information and a couple ideas that i will try to replicate someday myself. Is it worth paying for? Eh well if you can get it free from the library like i did then you're golden but i wouldnt pay anything higher than 3 bucks for it.
