I think visually you captured the feel and atmosphere of the carnival with some nice images but I think you could have brought that even further if you had put in some live sound.

Midnight is on the button, as usual.
A carnival is a mixture of colour and sound. Obviously you can't keep changing the sound with each image, but you can record a few sequences of live sound and use them as the backing track - occasionally bringing is live sound which matched the images (eg cheers, laughter etc).
I also thought you went totally overboard with the effects. Only use them when they really enhance the film, otherwise save them for titles in game shows!
hmm I dislike carnaval (and Brabant) with a passion, still want to say that the video seems quite nice. I liked the flow of it. The music doesnt really remind me of carnaval though. Now it's more like a dance festival with a carnaval theme.
