Hey Brandon,

I would shorten the intro messages a good bit as it felt a little slow. Some of the messages were good especially the one about the last time I had a light, police etc!

Once you got into your stride in the second half, you had some really nicely composed shots.

Lastly, get thee to Vimeo school and get it delivered at it's full potential. You should be able to play that at full screen not lost in the middle. They have some excellent tutotials on exactly how to get your material ready for them.

That was great work, especially for an SDE. I didn't really like the "interviews" because it felt abrupt and broke the flow, although I'm sure the guests liked that part a lot. Maybe keep the music going during the interviews and just drop the volume on it. I understand the song you chose isn't long enough to cover the interviews, so that would be a problem. Maybe start with and end with different songs? I don't know. I just know the interviews need some background music.

Really liked the bright contempoary feel, makes a nice change not to see B&W and film looks etc.

It held my attention and I watched it all which I don't normally do with these highlights videos. I agree with the other comments on the interviews though.
