Default U995 video peer review

I need a peer review of a video I made of the U995.

Can you watch it and let me know of any obvious mistakes I made?
(I already have Christmas tree=trimtanks) on my list

Other feedback is welcome

I think you did a great job on the narrative and video tour. To be honest, this was very much like a history channel documentary. Lots of information presented. I will watch this a few more times.

Nice job

hate to be a critic, but After watching the video I would change the intro. To me the bit about the 40,000 sailors seems out of place with the rest of the video. Since the video doesn't mention anything about them again.

Your tour of U 995 is more about the boat itself. Maybe introduction could include commissioning/decommissioning dates, commanding officers, or any notable operations it took part in.

I loved the tour. The intro as stated above doesn't connect well with the rest of the video and mimics the beginning of Das Boot. It's not that the facts are irrelevant, because they are, but they may work better as a conclusion after seeing the interior and restricted living conditions. Perhaps the intro could delve more into this particular subs construction and service life, then move to the tour and conclude with the awful facts of survival.
