Pretty good for a start. Some comments:

1) I'm not sure what's going on with the video but I'm getting letterboxing (black bars at the top and bottom) that fades itself into the video, shrinking the overall picture size. Make sure you're recording in 1920x1080 or some other 16:9 resolution. Are you recording on a phone that has an 18:9 or 21:9 aspect ratio? If so, you might want to change the video recording setting to be 16:9.

2) Watch the framing on your shots. Lots of times the cube was slightly out of frame or the bottom of the cube was cut off or whatever.

3) I would recommend losing the clips taken outside. They don't add all that much and the traffic noise detracts from the video.

4) If you can, speak just a little bit louder. I can definitely hear you now but a little more volume would be good.

Keep up the nice work!

Thanks Tabe!That is indeed 21:9 aspect ratio. I really appreciate your feedback! Also I live in a very loud area so the sound is actually from a separate audio file not the video. Now I record audio at 3 am in the morning! XD

My sister and I just started a cubing channel :) She does comedy type videos, I do more solve/technical videos.

Well so far the videos are great and enjoyable to watch. I have two questions namely, (1) Is your sister older or younger then you? and (2) Why are the comedy videos filmed in the car? I thought it was pretty funny when I saw it and I assumed that, a) you kicked her out of the house or, b)that was part of the comedy :D I hope that you know I am joking around, but i did think it was funny to see your sister in the car filming, instead of in the house or something akin. I look forward to any and all future videos.
