Sir_Loin_of_Beef Sorry about that. I didn't know I could control where the ads pop up. I have removed the ads obscuring the video.

I guess I didn't see the ad because I have Adblock. I could see everything just fine.

Nice video. I like how you speeded up some portions of the video during non-critical portions of the process. This eliminates a complaint I have with a lot of cooking videos - lots of dead time.

My feelings exactly Andy. That's why I suggested he is working while talking. He could simply start the video with "This College Cooking video is about ....." Then he could show the ingredients with the amount required. Now it would be time to start cooking the dish. Keep the opening short and informative. Cook as you talk.

What kind of cooking equipment and facilities does your target audience have? Many of us here at DC have well equipped kitchens, but I doubt that's the case with students. If I was to try to get by with a minimal amount of cooking equipment, it would include a rice cooker (with steamer basket), a slow cooker, a pot big enough for cooking pasta, and a skillet or a wok (but preferably both).

Just a suggestion, but you might want to demonstrate how to make a variety of meals with a minimal amount of cooking equipment. Most meals made in slow cookers are also good as leftovers, which I would guess would be important for students who don't want to cook every meal. You might also want to include some healthy eating tips. It's pretty common here for students to put on weight when they head off to school, although some of that is beer weight.

Thank You Andy. I was aiming to try and make is short and sweet but trying to include everything that was necessary.

Thank you for the advice Addie. I have kept a note of the things I need to remember for my next video. I shall but down the amounts of the ingredients in the overlay for future videos. I agree with talking while cooking. I tried it for this video but I forgot to talk as I was a little bit too focus on cooking. I think talking while cooking will come with practice :)

Thanks for the feedback tenspeed. My target audience would be a university student going into 1st year, who has a limited knowledge of cooking and the very basic equipment. (This was basically me in first year ) I shall ask a few university forums if they would likely have a slow cooker at uni, not many do. I know of one person who did but never used it

Those are very good ideas and very helpful. I have saved it into a document file.

Depending upon how serious you plan to get look at getting some soft boxes for lighting. They are realtivly inexpensive and will make you food look better. Also you will not have to film when the light is good.

powerplantop That's a good suggestion. I had a bit of trouble with the lighting having to get a lamp from my room and bring it to the kitchen. I will have a look into soft boxes for lighting as I can see it being very useful. Just one problem at the moment which is money.
