Nice vids Eva

Nice to see you doing the video now as well. Constructive criticism- take your time. You sound like your rushing yourself or you are nervous. Obviously you want to be concise and in depth (I KNOW you like to be indepth:))but don't feel like it all has to be done in 3 mins.

A purely technical tip, if you need to do a new take. Start a new recording. Don't let the camera run. It's MUCH easier to edit when they are separate files and not one long one.

Keep up the good work Eva.

I certainly don't do these

I certainly don't do these on a script; it's all off the cuff. I rush because I wanna cram as much in as I can. However, once again, the vid didn't turn out quite the way I wanted it to- I only wanna show transformation and features, but I keep getting lost in fun facts 'n such, which I need to remember to cut down on somehow. And that's how it keeps running long.
I'm hoping my next vid covering special transformation highlights in the DX line from "Hurricanger" will turn out better. Since the reviews on the individual toys are already covered, I can just pop in and out real quick-like.

As to multiple takes, I indeed used many more this time, hoping that more takes that were shorter would work out. ...guess it didn't. Regardless of the size I shoot these at, this camera I'm using is a real power hog, so I shoot through AA batts in 45min; with multiple takes, it can extend out to an hour of shooting. As soon as I'm done with a take, that camera is off.

I suggest going off of a script instead of going off the cuff. And I don't think you have to go into a LOT of detail. Just outline them here and there and if the viewer wants a more detailed description, just refer them to your written review.

CNET usually does this when reviewing cellphones, laptops, and pda's.
