I am sorry if this seems mean-spirited, Michele, it is not my intent at all and I am hoping you receive this as constructive criticism.

The first section (editing) is too long. It is many fast cuts of the same footage repeated for what seems minutes. Most viewers would stop before they get to the end of it.

The next sections move better and if you were to edit the entire down to one or two minutes at the most (choosing your very best), it would catch the viewers attention far better. As it is, viewers are left wondering if the first section is going to end or if the whole four minutes is going to be the same thing all of the way through.

You have good stuff here, Michele, unfortunately most people will never see it because it is just too long and needs to be tightened up so that they are left wanting more, rather than stopping part of the way through because it stayed on the same thing for much too long.

Again, my apologies if this seems mean-spirited. I hope you do not take it that way.

Best regards,
