    Great video, it was helpful to see an example of natural evolution, and the experiment was explained clearly.

  3. Sara says:

    The video was visually pleasing and well explained. I really liked the format because it was new and interesting.

    Your visuals are very cute and engaging. The interesting and new format made the video easy to watch and the information easier to digest.

    This was a really interesting video to watch. I like how the group used the drawn out animations to help us visualize things.

  6. Patrick says:

    This looks good, the visuals are especially appealing.

  7. Harrison says:

    I applaud your group for doing an excellent job of explaining the significance of titillators and its relationship to copulatory mechanisms with regards to both bushcrickets and the Galapagos finches (I found the finch example quite helpful).

  8. Reagan says:

    Fantastic video! Your visuals are creative and engaging. Also- great job relating back to the ideas we talked about in class!

  9. Nylah says:

    This was super interesting and very well thought out in terms of creativity. I like the visuals ! Only critique (super small) would be to silence the actual video portion of the moving figures–I could hear the paper rustling. Other than that it was informative, good job.

  10. Kharina says:

    Good job on your video. I really liked the visuals and in depth explanations. I think the voice over should be clearer.

  11. Hannah says:

    I enjoyed watching your video and you had clear, well-done visuals. The narration felt a little fast at the end, but other than that it was great. The music fit well and was a nice touch.

  13. Alyssa says:

    Overall, well done! Great visuals and great job tying things back to what we’ve learned in class. Maybe the connections could’ve been developed a little bit more, but overall great overview of the experiment.

  14. Hannah says:

    I love your visuals and music. The voice over was a little soft and fast, but overall, this was a great synopsis of the bush crickets.

  15. Daham says:

    I like the idea of using paper as dynamic scene transition. Also, their explanation with visual resources was straightforward.

  16. James says:

    Great video! The animations really helped to explain the content.

  17. Pratima says:

    The visuals were aesthetically pleasing, and you explained the experiment very clearly.

    I really liked your visuals in the video. They were very neatly drawn. Additionally, the flow of the video made the content easier to understand and interpret. The music was also a fun element to the video that I haven’t really heard in others. I clearly understand the experiment in a unique way. Good job!

  21. Lily says:

    Very nice visuals and the video explained a complicated experiment well.

  22. Maxwell says:

    The video was very well produced, and I like the subtle but interesting background music

  23. Elizabeth says:

    I liked this video style, very unique

  24. Darrell says:

    I really liked the visuals; they were appealing and still relevant to the topic. I also thought that the information was well presented, and the narration was done well. I think you could have tied in content from class a little more.

  25. Robert says:

    The video was very aesthetically pleasing and the information seemed relevant, but the audio was hard to hear at times

    Very good job with the paper props. Very simple yet effective

    The video was visually appealing and I was able to understand the study well. The explanations were clear and I could understand both the purpose of the study as well as the connection to our class and biology. I enjoyed the different visuals!

    I liked the way you made the visuals; very creative.

  39. Youngjoon says:

    Nice video! I especially liked how you defined most of the scientific terms at the beginning. The only thing I could really suggest for improvement is re-shooting some of the shots where you stutter a bit.

  40. Joy says:

    The drawings were sooo cute! The visuals in this video really kept me interested!!!

  41. Yanghang says:

  46. Noah says:

    The video overall was very interesting and well planned. A small suggestion is increasing the volume of the speaker while decreasing the music volume. Otherwise very good!

  47. Joseph says:

    Great video, but the high pitch voice really does annoy me; however, like I said the video does present important information, with a great example.

  48. Sreedhanya says:

    The detail in the paper props showed that lots of thought and effort was put into this video, and the visuals were helpful in conveying the information effectively.

  49. James says:

    Excellent use of visuals. Really helps me understand the topic.

  50. Joseph says:

    There is a bit of distracting background noise, but the playful music and lively illustrations do a good job of setting the tone of the video. Good work!

  51. Samantha says:

    The video is very informative and easy to follow. I like the visuals that were used as well. My only critique is the sound quality of the video. Despite the low volumes, I learned from it and enjoyed it!

  52. Xiaoying says:

    The paper cut of crickets and other features are super interesting and helpful for understanding the procedure and helps a lot to remember! The background sound is a little bit noisy but it doesn’t effect too much.

  53. Seenam says:

    Great video! I loved the visuals so detailed!!

  54. Zhubo says:

    Great video! Make Science more engaging and understandable with the help of paper cartoon characters.

  59. Graeme says:

    Enjoyed the video! The drawings were very creative and well done.

  60. Tyler says:

    The cut out pieces of paper add a dimension of animation to the video without taking it over the top which is very nice. Drawing the comparison with the commonly known Darwin’s finches is also a great way to tie evolutionary concepts back to the basics.

  61. Tyler says:

    Love the paper drawings stylistic effect!!

  62. Carlos says:

    The visuals were whimsical and provided for an easy understanding of the subject. The audio however could use some improvement as some background noise was picked up.

  63. Bradford says:

    Nice visuals, it definitely kept me interested.

  64. Subin says:

    The video was easy to follow, and the visuals were great! The information was in deapth ad easy to understand. I think if the background sound was eliminated, it would have been better, but it did not bother that much.

  65. Ana says:

    I really liked the illustrations and the real-time putting together of the drawings and concepts.

    One suggestion is to have the camera completely facing down onto the paper, and recording so that your arms are seen at the top of the video, moving around pieces of drawings, instead of at the bottom.

    It wasn’t necessarily distracting the way you guys did it though!!

  66. Andrew says:

    The script for the video was very clear, but at the same time, it was hard to hear it due too the mic and lacked subtitles. However, I still enjoyed the video and thought it was cute.

  67. Ria says:

    The background music keeps the video light. Good design choice.

  68. Isabelle says:

    The cricket drawings in the video were so cute! And the video was also very informative.

  69. Carlie says:

    The visuals on this project were very appealing and made it easy to follow along. The background music was a bit loud, but other than that it was a great presentation.
