I like how you came up with the whole scenario in which you have linked all the information together as natural as possible. The dialog is very engaging as well as entertaining. However, the video would be better if the sound can be clearer that I had a hard time listening even when the volume was on high.

Two things I liked about the video are the dialogue and the overall concept. It used humor to keep the audience entertained and connect with students on an individual level. For example, the concept that the students really had a problem to overcome made it easier to watch and gave the video purpose.

On another note, I did have to turn up the volume and still had trouble hearing it so you could possibly fix a couple of technical errors. In addition to the sound and shaking of the camera, when he is looking at the website I would appreciate more 'screen shots' so I know what he's looking at and it's more beneficial for the audience.

The plight of the characters was engaging and made the story attractive. The list of several different media editing software would be useful for someone needing to use online media editing.

The characters seemed fake at points and the lines were a little over the top at points. Also, "Mitch" said "Jesus" in an irreverent fashion which wouldn't be suitable for general audiences in grade school.

I really liked how the video told a story and the humor was very engaging. You guys did a great job actually acting it out and making it entertaining. The little breaks without any audio at all kind of broke up the flow in my opinion. I feel like the scene near the end when Mitch explains everything again was slightly unnecessary as it did not really add any new information.

Very energetic and engaging script. You both did a very good job detailing how Gimp could be used in several different circumstances, including school which was most important.
Some of moments were a little over the top and cheesy however and there could be some improvements to "empty" spaces in the sense that not much is going on and time is being wasted.

I liked your video! I thought the dialogue was interesting and the guys in the video were funny. I also liked your story idea and the way you presented it. Some things you could work on would be to make the dialogue louder because sometimes it was too quiet. I also thought you could have gave us more info about other online editing sites besides gimp.com.

The video was good and entertaining to watch. I liked how you showed a practical use of online media editing by using a plot that majority of college students could relate to. The dialogue and explanations were easy to follow and understand, making the video more enjoyable to watch.

I am interested in the other types of online media editing that was mentioned. Gimp was the mainly discussed while hinting at some "other" editors that were just as beneficial. What are some of the other choices? I think it would also be beneficial to show the process and possible editing outcomes that could happen by using these editing tools.

I really enjoyed the video! I liked that the video had a plot, as it kept me engaged and interested in the information. I also liked how simply the information was presented. The whole video was very easy to follow!

I noticed that the camera was shaky at some points. Also, there was a factual error in the video - the Mitch character kept saying "gimp.com" when the site is actually "gimp.org". I couldn't find the website when I was searching for it because of this!

- The plot kept my attention, nice job :)
- The message was easy to understand and the information was delivered successfully.

- Why did you choose to feature Gimp as opposed to any of the other sites?
- At times (depending on the camera angle) I was distracted by the objects in the background. (Not to be picky, but I have to list two things, lol).

I liked the use of humor, and also how they related it to something specific such as the yearbook.

I did notice their was some shakiness to the video. I also thought their could have been a little more focus on the site itself. Maybe they could have shown some more about the site like a tutorial, or example of a photo edited before and after on gimp.

It was very funny. It gave clear explanations.

The video kept me interested because of the conversation between the two guys.
I liked that they overcame a problem of how that would help students.

I disliked that the audience could anticipate what was going to happen before it was said.
The camera was a little shaky.

-It was kind of fun to watch
- I also like that we can relate to the people in the video since they are our own age.
- One thing that can be improved is the sound; it was hard to understand what they were saying sometimes.
- I would have liked if you used some kind of graphics to make it a little more entertaining.

Engaging dialog with humor and interspersed well with text and pointers.

A little slow at times, and he really sounded like a salesman most of the time which could be grating.

The video added humor to keep the viewers interested, as well as used different camera angles to prevent the monotony of the video.

I believe the video could have used screen shots in a way to show exactly how the program is used or downloaded. Also, it would have been beneficial to see a comparison of using the program versus using the less efficient method that was first being used.
