    Haven't time to download all - but just watched the viet vid. Stern, sobering stuff, they'd love you at anti-war rallies.

    Those atomic explosions are shittifying. Some post-production effect added to the first one, maybe, but the second one looked unretouched.

    As you say, simple & smooth. It's often the case that less is more.

    Thx for feedback keep it coming

    I can see why you enjoy doing this stuff. Why not apply similar themes to your own original footage?

    It's possible to show mundane, wordly activities with an apocalyptic sound track. Y'know, like a human's life turning from a feeling of futility to something different.

    I'm sure there's endless room for great creativity in this kind of stuff.

    It's great that you're using imagery to remind everyone of the horrors of war, but...

    I've just watched the last set of 3 videos, and I must say they demonstrate little or no artistic intepretation or technical ability. The clips seem disjointed, almost as if you'd put no thought into what order they played, or the music you've used to enhance them.

    The choice of music was sterling, but you really need to use those choices to your advantage. Some would say, "cut to the beat"; I say let the video flow with the music.

    You could make a short snippet from one of them - kind of like a trailer?

    Or edit out one sequence with a brief review of what the whole thing's about?
