    Feedback on video one (only have time to check one vid right now):
    Good parts:
    - Lot's of shots. It keeps my attention.
    - Light in several shots. Light, the key essence of a shot.
    - The repeat of several effects from shot to shot.
    - Lens flare @ 1:45 nice!
    - Nice explosions effects


    Improvements:
    - I wouldn't use colored text on screen. I would have used white text and placed it on the left bottom of the screen, but thats a matter of taste.
    - Color correction. Some scenes look darker or have an overall greenish or blueish look.
    - White balance. To avoid a lot of color correction, use white balance.
    Hold a piece of paper in front of the cam, zoom in, make the image sharp and press the white balance button on the cam (some cams don't have manual white balance)
    - @ 1:38, maybe you could have used 'frame blending' in After Effects. It would smoothing the slowmo.
    - @ 2:11 i would have used a glass i.s.o. a paper cup ;-)
    - Did you use one bright light from the front? Sometimes a hard shadow of a hand comes over a face. Try 2 bright lights from front sides and a softer light from the back (of directly above)

    Overall: Good start in making video's. It's a typical G clip and the scenary matches the song.
    Most of my feedback is just a matter of taste, but i hope i've given you some good tips.
    Keep up the good work!
