I spoke about mine, or the topics I found important in my own video, what about you guys? What topics, or first impressions did you all have?

to quote jesse cox: advertise like shameless whores

a few things to consider. the way you did it is quite annoying to watch, take no offense on that. but id much rather you just let out the dev audio alltogether and just talked over the video in the background. If there is anything important the devs say, you can of course highlight it.

But chances are everyone that wants to see a first impressions, has actually already seen the thing. So you dont have to show it to them twice with all the dev comments, it just draws out the video.
also if you wouldnt do that it would save you the time with the awkward screen trasitions.

anyway i wish you best luck with this.

Well, I suppose to start off, thanks for the feedback! I'll take it as I can get it. Funny you mention Jesse, I'm using his advice and doing just that :p

I've had mixed feelings about the transitions.. some people do not mind, others do. First video I've done in this style. So it's a learning progression for myself.

In terms of the first impression of people already seeing it... sure they might of already seen the ACTUAL trailer, but it's My (Zarxces) Impressions of it. The reason I leave in the devs speaking on it is because it helps me work with it and helps people follow what I am speaking about. Just leaving the devs awkwardly speaking in the background with no audio would be strange. So I decided to play off of what they said, and that is how I "highlighted" it if you will. The whole trailer wasn't in it, just points the devs said and the impressions I had of it and why I thought it was important to mention.

I appreciate the feedback, means a lot! Have a good one.

You have a good narrative voice, but a bit too fast, though. This makes it hard to follow for people for whom English is just a second language. PM'ed you, btw.
