Hi Luke – I'd agree with VideoTom's thoughts, esp. adding some sort of lower third titles for each person, if only the person's name and website, since it's an online video.
A few other thoughts:
– I recommend using short (maybe 15fr) audio dissolves on all standup clips that precede or procede silence. While overall production quality is good, having audio that cuts in and out caught my attention – which it shouldn't have.
– When the dialogue tracks go silent, I recommend to mix the music hotter by 4-6db. That way it feels like it’s on purpose "and now a musical interlude while the raffle goes down" instead of “oh we just don’t have any sound here, and the music will continue in the background…” – then you can duck the music back down when dialogue re-enters.
– The lady at 3.20 looked like she didn't know if she should speak to camera or not… she kind of switched back and forth. Maybe in the future you could give her another take and say "make sure to speak right into the camera the whole time."
You have some good things going here – keep it up!
