    Matt, this is excellent! Your voice is perfectly suited to the video. You sound very well-informed, relaxed, and confident about your command of the facts. The film clips reflect the hair-raising suspense and moments of panic in the movie, and they flow seamlessly along with the ideas in your narration. You’re funny, too! Even though I was too chicken to see Jaws, I always chuckle at the inspired irony of the setting’s name, Amity Island. I was happy to see Finding Nemo included in your review, as it ranks #2 on my personal Reel Affection List of favorite animated films (right after Toy Story 3). Also, I didn’t know that the name “Bruce” was a tribute to the Jaws shark–in fact, I didn’t even remember his name was Bruce, so thanks for that little bit of information! Please excuse my general omission of quotation marks. I find them annoying, especially when it’s obvious to any reader here that I’m referring to a film title. Best wishes for long and prosperous success with your venture, Matt. You’re really gifted at this! Looking forward to the next installment!

    This video was so awesome. How did you do the beginning animation? Anyways I learned a lot, the most insightful things were about the way the camera filming techniques really tell the audiences things about how the character in the picture is feeling I.e the camera changes and the zooming techniques
