    This comment is for Serena Epstein on Risky Mermaid.

    This video was excellent. It had color, sound and a theme that I would not have expected from The Little Mermaid video. The voice that was speaking seemed to add to the message and the way that the clips were showing. You also seemed to time the voice overlay with each clip perfectly. I give you two thumbs up. Though I can say that if I had a kid and they advertised for the video that way I would not let my child go see it.
    Good job.

    To: Caitlin Mackay- Visit Poland

    I liked the music that was playing in the background. The music when it first came on made it seem like it would relate to a spy theme. When you had the words “that’s one long town name” pop up in the photo I liked it. It seemed to add just a little bit of pazazz to the video. To me the video was an interesting way of showing some of Poland’s history. I would not be convinced to go visit poland but that is simply because I have no want to visit that country. The child was very cute. I think it was a good part to include.

    To: Sarah Pierson- Sometimes When I’m Alone I Cry

    Wow the start of your video was a little scary to me. I was not sure where you were going with you video. I liked the video. It showed emotion, sadness, and worry in those peoples faces. I am not sure where you found those videos to about what looked like gangs and the violance but it was a good touch.

    To: Nate Finney – What’s Wrong With Hip Hop?

    The part that I liked the most in you video was when the people were doing that dance. I can say that I don’t follow hip hop but you did a good job of putting the film to the music that you used.

    Amy Van Vlack- Make Music Not War

    I loved the music you used. It worked so well in the video I think. The robot playint the trumpet was cool too. I can say that this was a very intertaining video.

    Alicia Grolbert- Do You Speak French

    I think that you video showed a side of Obama that I have not seen. I can say I don’t know that much about what he has to say and I think that it was intertaining and something that we the people of the U.S. need to look at and try to do. We do need to Lead by example.

    To: Ashley Jacoby- Save the Polar Bear

    Wow I thought that you did a great job putting it all together. I think that the videos and picture were so cute. I have not see a those types of picture before. I was very moved by what you said and I think that your statement was a very good one.

    Emma Goodridge – Obamonon

    I really liked the way you ordered the photos and video, and the way they meshed with the music. It was upbeat, and started out with photos that were also very enthusiastic, which built up nicely to the video in the middle. The video delivered the message successfully, while the final set of photos at the end completed it, really leaving the viewer with some concrete, memorable images and thoughts.

    -Make Music Not War

    I really enjoyed the use of music in this one. It completely changed my perspective the images you used. Your video had a message and your point was clear and well delivered.
