Brief description: A brief overview of the film Ghost and a tribute to not only one of my favourite films but also my all-time favourite actor, Patrick Swayze.

Review: This was a much more action packed video than I expected! You did a great job of matching the lyrics to the song and of utilizing the beats of the song to guide your editing. The emotions of this video are so intense! Great job!

Brief description: Sansa's love was misplaced, a truth bitterly learned, but can Tyrion show her the way to real love?

Review: The way you used similar effects throughout the video ties together all the scenes, and it looks really good. The simplicity of the music and scenes, the clear editing, and the subtle effects draw attention to the story, and it makes for a really beautiful video. You did a great job with this. Just gorgeous!


REVIEW: What Hurts the Most

Video Name:What hurts the most
Link to the page that contains the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXa1llPopSc
Brief description:: in this AU Brennan confesses her feelings for booth he tells her that it can never be. Brennan heart is torn into pieces because she knows that she could never love someone as much as she loves Booth.

Cec: Yikes. Why not just rip my heart out?! Thanks a lot! I kid, but seriously. This was a convincing and very emotional AU video. You did a good job of sequencing the clips to tell the story in a coherent way, and you also utilized well special effects like overlays and black and white to separate the current storyline from the memories and flashbacks. This is a really lovely video. Great work!

Brief description: It's graduation day! Time for Buffy and the Scoobies to burn those bridges--and more!

Cec: I can tell you spent a lot of time thinking this video through! Every single line is matched perfectly with the scene you edited with it. I love that you used scenes from all throughout the series. So cool! This was such a fun video! I loved reliving the old Buffy days, and I love that you created such a fast moving video! Perfect ending scene. Great work!


REVIEW: How To Be A Heartbreaker

Video Name: Katherine Pierce • How To Be A Heartbreaker
Link to the page that contains the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lk9A2pnHc4
Brief description: Kath teaches us how to be a heartbreaker with great style. Just something to have fun with =)

Review:  Yeah. you rocked this. I thought it was precious the way you had the "rule #__" text pop up. That was well done. The way you incorporated flashbacks with present day shots was nice. You did a great job with the edits and the special effects. The way you alter the color and contrast really pulls the video together. I loved the way the vid never stopped moving, and the ending was just too good. Way to go! Loved it!

Review: I was sold on this before I even hit the 15 second mark! . I love the unusual (but awesome!!) song choice, the light tone, and pulsing rhythm shared by the song and the editing. This video is just a blast to watch, and I can tell that you must have had a blast making it! Fabulous job!
