Definitely well made (and I'm still watching it through), but...
The focus of this thing should solely be on Alex Smith. Jim Harbaugh and the rest of the team should be supporting characters. The week-by-week recaps aren't necessary. This thing could have been a lot shorter. Cut out everything that isn't Alex on the screen unless it relates to Alex.
Like week one is really insignificant to "The Alex Smith Story." Ted Ginn's two TD's are not important. In fact, starting with the week two overtime loss would have been a better choice, since that was the true beginning of the surge.
I'm not even sure how much Greg Williams matters to the story. The focus is on Alex's relationship with the fans and how the media perceives him. More than half of this thing should have been dedicated to his struggles through the 2009 season. There was plenty more to show...
• Starting his first game against the powerhouse Colts in 2005.
• Not scoring a TD in 2005 until week 17.
• The revolving door of offensive coordinators.
• The landmark shoulder injury and struggles with said injury in 2007.
• The shutout loss in Seattle in 2007, before he was placed on IR
• Missing the 2008 season
• Singletary, but he did a good job there
Just my 2¢. Pretty good for a student film, but I would have kept more of a focus on Alex and pulled from more interviews. We really don't get to see enough of him going through the ups and downs. Instead, we get a TEAM recap of the 2011 season instead of a recap of Alex.
Also, the rap/r&b music that kicks in at 13:05 is pretty bad/generic. The rest of the music is pretty good though... SOCIAL NETWORK soundtrack ftw.
