I've seen some of your other videos and I expect you'll do alright.
Just remember to keep in a rhythm. Pace yourself.
A script or at least a guideline to follow throughout your production wouldn't be a bad idea.

I'm glad to see you're still at it. Just going to give a few notes here:
Even though you're doing a mockumentary piece, you shouldn't be afraid of doing more than one take. You can still edit pieces together from various multiple takes. Sometimes even more so than a straight forward story because jump cuts are more acceptable in documentaries. Shoot other things to cut to so you can heal some of those jump cuts in a scene. (ie. more separate shots of the girl on the phone to cut to so you don't have to stay on your main character so long while he's struggling with what to say.)
Quick note about compression:
If you shoot 16x9, you need to compress for 16x9. If you compress for 4x3, you get the squeezed look you have now.
Keep it up. The more you do the better you're going to get. Wish I had started at your age! (smiles)
