    Well, they were pretty good. But why does this always happen? I swear that more then half of the footage I see shot with DSLRs are over exposed. That would be my main criticism of your stuff. I feel a bit lame criticizing you seeing as I certainly haven't made near as much content as you but imma keep going haha. Second would be that most of the songs I have heard (Although I can NOT figure out where. Seriously I was listening to them and I kept thinking "I have heard this a million times" but I can not figure out where). I didn't think the sound design was really that great, but it wasn't bad, it didn't distract me from the videos. All in all they were very watchable and pretty good

    thanks for the feedback. I like the over exposure and most of it was intentional. but to each their own. :p

    I would have recommended stopping up so that your whites weren't completely blown out and then color correcting as far as the first video goes.

    generally i found the copy to be pretty good. it was punchy and there were some good analogies.

    The video got the point across but was unrefined and generally needed to be tightened and focused. For example i would have stopped at the roommate eating the cereal because i get it and everything after becomes redundant. I think you're succeeding from a Communications perspective but the Filmmaking chops need to be developed.

    I thought pocket change was the best shot (lower thirds could be a smaller font with a background transparency for readability).

    thanks folks.
    I will keep the stops in mind for the highlights and fix things in color.
