What worked well: I thoroughly enjoyed the goofy acting.
Suggestion: Maybe speed up the video or cover less material. It dragged on a little.
I’d suggest shortening the video since it’s supposed to be only 3 minutes. Also, the audio was difficult to hear at times. This was definitely a creative approach to explaining everything. Acting instead of drawing was a good choice.
I like how you had all of your members act as different characters and scientists. It made learning the information more entertaining. One thing that could have made the video better would have been to make the experiments seem more entertaining instead of just repeating what the experiments were about.
This video is very creative. I liked how you acted out the parts to describe the how DNA was discovered. However, I think this video is too long, which makes it hard to focus. To improve on this, I would have made this video shorter and taken out some irrelevant detail.
I enjoyed that you all participated and acted in the video. One thing that I saw could have used a little bit of work was the video editing portion; I think you guys should have brightened the screen a little in the beginning; it was very hard to see what was going on. It was a very creative idea, and I believe that you guys did a pretty good job with it all.
I enjoyed the visual aids (such as the signs on the door) of this video a lot. They helped me retain more information. However, I believe that there was an excess of jargon for explanation of the second experiment. It was a little bit confusing.
Very nice visuals. Concepts are explained well. Narration is clear, although it’d be good to speed up a bit when explaining things. The scientists should try to sound more enthusiastic, maybe have Holmes and Watson pop up in between to keep the viewers engaged.
The acting in the video was interesting and amusing. The video was a bit long, though, and drags a bit. Maybe you could streamline the video and focus on the more important details.
The concept of the video is really great. I enjoyed the effort you all put into costumes and different accents because it really livened up the subject. The video is a little long so shortening it would make the video better.
Creative, but far too long! Seeing the length makes me not want to watch it 🙁 But, I had to watch it, and it was ultimately very funny and entertaining.
The format of the video was very entertaining however some parts seemed to drag on, giving too much detail and losing the interest of the audience. It could be improved by leaving some of this out and focusing on the main points of the discovery. Overall it was very enjoyable just long.
The video was entertaining and grabs the viewers attention throughout. It would have been nice to see more of the acting and creativity implemented in the actual experiments conducted.
The acting was a good choice and helped to convey the information in a humorous/ interesting manner. There definitely are some places where the script could have been trimmed down, though, for time’s sake.
The video did drag a little, i feel like it could have been shorter just making sure that every last second was utilized. I don’t really understand the ending. Way to take an unorthodox approach to teaching the material!
I enjoyed the acting and live video. That was a good change from most of the animated videos. One suggestion is to keep it concise, I seemed to lose a little interest after a few minutes. Overall solid job!
