    So, I've just uploaded a video that I worked really hard on. I actually posted a thread about part one of this video here and got great advices. For this video, I posted it at a good day and time, I cut down the video time to half of my usual videos, I got straight to the point very quick, and this time, unlike the part one, didn't have any jump scares. This is just a pure best quality content that I could muster up! I even wore a microphone to have better audio too. Also, my tags are doing better this time.

    However, I'm just not getting the views that it deserves (currently 3 views). I say this because for my first video, which wasn't even that great, got 60 views in a day.

    Here is the video. Please help me review and let me know what I'm doing wrong and/or what could help.

    I think you told an interesting story. A couple things I might think about:
    1. For spooky stories, is Stitch sitting behind you on the wall the best background?
    2. Even if you have details in an earlier video, make sure to cover the basic outline of what happened would be helpful.
    3. I'm not sure the "spooky voice" you use when you tell the story is helping very much. I'd say to tell your story in your normal voice, as the story itself should carry the day.

    Hope this helps!

    I enjoy your story a good bit!
    1.Some of the way you worded the sentences didn't feel very fluid.seemed a bit forced and unlax if that makes sense.
    2. try to find a better back ground for your video.maybe a darker part of the house to give the story a starting bit of dark.
    3.you seem to be a bit too cheerful at the end and not shaken. recalling on a horrible experience would leave someone a bit more disturbed recalling it.

    over all i did enjoy the story though.

    Hiya,
    I would suggest you get rid of the spooky voice and stick to your normal voice. You came across as very sincere and engaging at the start of the video. Good luck!

    There's a lot of potential here, it really got my attention but I will agree with the others on certain things.
    1. You can do a better set or background, the Pop figures, stitch and fluffy stuff really need to go, they are killing the mood. Have you tried to sit down with a candle or several candles in front? maybe have some candles in the back too or put a halloween mask or skull in the background? This is the best low budget set I could think of
    2. You got me with your normal voice, is perfect, then I lost interest when you tried a creepy voice. These videos work better when you are serious and have a deep tone. Gets more creepy.
    3. Try to look for better images or try filming new stories. The best way to tell the story is doing your intro, then giving some context with images and focus the camera on you when things are getting spooky. We want to see your face expressions when things are getting interesting. No need to see you scared, just serious, like if you are watching someone in the eyes,,, you want them to believe your story.
    4. For any image that you want to bring attention to.. use the Ken Burns effect while editing.. in other words, zoom where you want to bring attention. Just google Ken Burns effect or watch my first video, I do a lot of those when working with images.
    5. Keep the jump scares at a minimum, glad you didn't include any. They are so cheap and annoying. Your voice should be perfect to tell the story.
