    Tip for future vlogs….Lose the music – it’s incredibly distracting. It’s all you end up listening to and not the great tips. Have it at the start and end if you must, but unless you know how to dip music for dialogue, don’t have it in the middle of the piece.

    Also, think about where you’re filming, even if it’s a Vlog. The room was very echo-laden, and made it hard to listen to.

    Hope that’s useful feedback :-)

    great vlog content (I’m about to do a short presentation so very timely!) the length felt right too.

    but if I can i make a couple of suggestions – the guitar music, though nice, ‘fights’ with what you are saying . it’s too loud and there is too much of it, it’s irritating before you get the second P, the music gets in the way. Also the music finishes before you finish speaking.

    The other idea is that instead of a dissolve jump cut to ‘Preparation’ ‘Production’ etc why not push the shot of you off screen (to the left) as the word Presentation wipes in (from the right – so you read it as it comes in), and with the title comes the next shot of you…. and add perhaps a music sting with the wipe?

    you should perhaps consider developing a ‘house style’ with house graphics and your logo at the end.
