Title of thread: Would Like A Feedback On My Crime Documentary Videos
Self review: I believe it is well done in some part. I kept the intro short because no one like a long intro. I try to make the thumbnail simple yet appealing. With a long videos like this, there might be many flaw and I pretty sure I myself can detected it myself. It just that it take too much of my time to fix it and I not sure if I am doing the right thing. My only biggest grip I think is my voiceover because some part are quiet and sometime it not clear on what I am saying. I will have to work on that. That is all!

Hey! I love these kind of videos. I just saw the episode and was legit creeped out. I know you mentioned that you have shortened the intro but I think you can afford to shorten it just a bit more. I say this because your video is already close to 30minutes long and as a new viewer to a channel I hardly know, I want to get a feel right away if your episode is about to waste my time or intrigue me. The animation of the introduction is good but speed it up a bit and if you want a 10 second intro, make it 5 seconds of your title animation and 5 seconds of a quick collage or taste of what your channel is about. I hate to admit it but I am a "choose a book by its cover" kind of guy and for me if the youtuber has a really professional looking intro, I automatically give the channel my trust that the video I am about to watch will be, at least, well edited - but if I am fooled and the rest of the video's editing falls apart, then I leave immediately and then most likely avoid revisiting that channel.

I loved the editing of your episode: the sound, the pacing, and the overall mood was well done to the theme. One thing that would help improve the experience would be some texts; not a lot of texts but few words that you want to put more emphasis on. Other than that, I think your video shows real potential.

One thing I don't know is if there is copyright infringement in using footages that are not edited by you; but I think the mods here are better suited to answer that - I think will be okay since you are changing the purpose of the media but better to be safe by asking. Overall, I like it =D cheers

Thank you for the feedback. Yeah it true, that I need to work on my intro. Let see what I can do for my next documentary and yes I need to make it short too especially if I am just a new freshie in the YouTube Creator world.

Thanks for the suggestion! I do need to add more text though.

Yeah I not sure about that either and hopefully my video doesn't get the copyright strike because as far as I know as long as you don't show the whole thing and some part of the clip as well as adding commentary to it, it will do fine. But of course it depend on the company itself, some are pretty aggressive about it.

Anyway thanks again!
