Trying to expand my reach wit YouTube so I’ve been trying my hand at video editing, so I finally cracked open Final Cut. I’m happy with the results.. at least for a practice project.

But I’ll take whatever compliments or criticism. Pretend like this were a real project and I were really going to publish this. Since the goal is to publish video, all compliments or criticism is welcome. I don’t like the title and I got lazy in choosing a font. Normally I would have designed something.

The beginning was a waste of opportunity. Sky shots can be used as a breakaway, but not for an ongoing scene.

However, the second half was very well done.

Could have had a stunning ending that would have been thought provoking, instead of just stopping.

Definitely liked the message!

Yea, i kinda felt like it needed a finale too, but I ran out of music and got tired of messing
with it lol. This is the original.

I’ll ruminate on the cloud thing. Thanks.

I should have also leveled out the volume 2/3rds in as the background music starts overtaking the voice.

Minor stuff.

very nice!
Thanks!
