    Your voice was clear and I didn’t hear back round noise. But your voices volume was different and that really stood out to me, but otherwise I think you video is great, good pictures, and a great choice of music.


  2. Niklas C says:

    I really enjoyed the images and transitions in your video. I would suggest making the music a bit quieter though because it made you hard to understand.


  3. Lindsay Sidore says:

    Your video was enlightening and enjoyable to watch and listen to. You stated all of your topics in an organized manner which made your video strong and professional. Your bibliography looks great as well, but your writing beneath your video needs to be editing a bit. Your writing is organized but has grammar and mechanics mistakes that take away from the overall post. I wouldn’t start your sentences with a conjunction and I would lengthen your topic sentences. That being said I really valued the effort put into your post!

    I really liked the music in the background! At 0:44 in your sentence in the video uses there instead of their. Overall, it was fun to watch!

    All of your information on your video is really good but the music doesn’t quite fit the mood because it’s so fun and your story is kind of sad.

    I find it quite incredible how the thoughts of a young child impacted a large amount of people in such a powerful way. I really appreciate hearing the history behind the fame of the Xhosa people but would love if you went a little more in depth. You claimed that “There were some survivors. But they were force to flee.” Did anyone predict that destroying the land would impact the Xhosa people in a negative way? This seems like a very interesting topic to research and I would love to learn more about the Xhosa people and their fame.
