Video 1; Oatmeal Moisturizing Winter Bath Bomb• Target audience: Aimed towards teenagers who are preparing Christmas gifts for their friends• URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pk6ctUy0BW0&list=PLgZl0K_JvOVpsSHOmk01fG8uaumuA6oud&index=2• Author:BeautySplurge on YouTube• Purpose: A DIY video tutorial in showing how you can make your own creative bath bombs for friends• Elements of the video I like: I liked how her final product (bath bomb) was very unique and creative. Her voice was very clear and easy to understand. The video was a bit long as it was 6 minutes, however I was too drawn into the video because of its creativity and originality, I did not notice until the end. The music in the background matched the Christmas theme of the video. She used good video editing skills, as she showed some simple special effects on such as fast forwarding, including background music and voicing over the video.• Elements of the video I dislike: The angling of her camera because sometimes it was not easy to see what she was physically doing.• Any features I think is missing: none

Video 2; DIY: Galaxy Shirt• Target audience: Aimed towards artistic teenagers• URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOkaRy8PTvU&list=PLUdsxxebic5ly4oG6eVi5eLXztG-khZtg&index=4• Author: chicforless on YouTube• Purpose: To teach the viewers a way of turning plain shirts into trendy, fashionable galaxy shirts.• Elements of the video I like: I liked how even though the video was narrated with another language (that I couldn’t understand), the video’s step-to-step guide made it very easy for me to understand what I was supposed to do in order to make a galaxy shirt. I also liked how she had introduced the materials we needed at the beginningin order to make the shirt. I liked how she used simple music in the background as it doesn’t catch too much attention as that is not an element that viewers focus on. I also like her use of effects with the video camera zooming in and the fast- forwarding effect.• Elements of the video I dislike: I did not like how she did not use a tripod in this video in some parts therefore it was very wobbly and distracting.• Any features I think is missing: I think she could have filmed more of the final product, for example herself wearing it outside, and film how it looks like instead of just one photo at the end.

I liked the use of effects such as fast-forwarding and the playing two videos at once next to each other. Her camera was good quality and focused on the object well. I liked how the video was a tutorial to make studded shorts as they are very trendy and fashionable, however most are expensive to buy, therefore by having this tutorial, it teaches people how to make them at a more cheap price.• Elements of the video I dislike: I didn’t like how the video was very long. It was 8 minutes and it was starting to get boring towards the end. I think she should’ve been more precise and cut out the areas that was not necessary.• Any features I think is missing: A clear shot of the final product from different angles. She could’ve shown herself wearing the shorts to show what they actually look like when a person is wearing them.
