Total crap. Sorry dude, but true. Anyone could do this.
1.Tone down the music, or eliminate it. Music on you tube is always amateur, and always irritating. Just because you like the tunes, does not mean others will. Music is very very personal, and many many people out there have much better taste in music than you do. Believe it. If you need music, you are not a film or documentary maker.
2. If you want to tell me about Galla, then tell me and show me. Narrate, give me information, while showing me his play. Anyone can put highlights together. Why are you doing it? What have you got to say?
3. Edit. Give me highs, but give me lows too. Make me interested. Keep it moving.
I see no evidence of any of that in your video.
Look. I'll level with you: I'm an architect, and I got my early work absolutely shredded at school. I just go destroyed sometimes. A lot of us did.
If you want to be in the visual and media arts, you had better be serious, know your field, know the history, know the craft, and learn to take criticism.
BUT! You have passion! And that is all you need to start.
Do another one, I bet it will be better. Then do another one again. Repeat!
