Opinions and feedback wanted

The link below is to a video I produced for a school. They wanted a video that would introduce the school to potential students and parents and also explain what the school is all about. I would greatly appreciate any and all feedback (on the video not your opinion on the school :) ... positive and negative. Thanks. btw shot with Canon XH A1... ARRI 3 light kit

Augustine School :: Jackson, TN

Very nicely done. I think they should be a happy customer.

The lighting on the individual interviews had a nice look in my opinion . Especially when you selectively lit the background.

The only thing I did not have a feel for was the section that you had where light sources was glowing which I guess gave more of a "holy" or "divine" look but it wasnt for me.

Overall a great promo video!

Very well done! I agree, the lighting was excellent.

Even though this was a relatively longer promo, the pacing of the edits kept everything flowing so it didn't seem as long.

I agree that the glowing FX were a bit over the top for an otherwise serious and thoughtful piece. What did you use for that effect? Which NLE did you use and did you use any specific color grading?

Thanks for all the comments. The "glowing" section I just did for a change of pace. I just used a sapphire glow plugin within FCP. Audio I used my AT 4073a on a boom wired straight to the camera. The hard part is doing these type of shoots by myself. I always like to have an interviewer so I can concentrate on the shot and the audio, not always possible as in this case... towards the end, one of the guys speaking started to rise up in the chair cutting off his head a bit and I didn't notice it because I had the shot locked down and was standing beside the camera giving him someone to talk to.
