    great job, I liked it all except for the lighting in a lot of parts. it was just too well lit for my taste, it didn't look natural (to me). Like part 1 at the dinner table. And my least favorite shot was the potato slide. All in all I did enjoy the whole thing. The audio was great. Good job!
    thanks for sharing.

    I can help you. I'm a YouTube upload junky. I can tell you how to render out for YouTube but you have to provide your timeline settings, what NLE your using, the footage specs and your pixel aspect ratio.

    par: 4:3

    thanks

    Thanks for the feedback. guys. Regarding the output to youtube, I cheated. I just upgraded to Adobe PPro 4.1 and there's an output to "youtube SD widescreen" setting that you just click and go.

    You have a few options.

    But before I mention those, your footage is going to have the black bars on the sides because it's 4:3.
    if you stretch your pixels to wide it would not look good. Everything would be wide and everyone would look kind of fat.

    the best way to avoid the black bars is to record in squeeze or widescreen mode and edit on a widescreen timeline.

    But if you want to add something to the sides to cover up the black bars like the ESPN side bars in the HD channel, just finish out your complete edit and create a new widescreen timeline. Add anyting you want like a gradient or something nice, maybe vertical text on the sides and then drop your full render in the middle and re-render out.
    Then your sides will be filled with what you put behind your video.

    Another way to do it, but I personally don't like it because it makes the quality not as good is to do the following.

    1- Upload your video to YouTube as 4:3

    2- in the video description area go to the "tags" and at the end of your tags hit [SPACE] and add this to the end "yt:stretch=16:9" without the quotation marks of course, and that will stretch your video to fill the whole YouTube window.

    But you shot and edited your footage in widescreen right?

    I just looked at a few scenes quick but it definitely looked really good and as some have mentioned the sound was great. i'll take a look at the whole thing later and let you know what I think. Even with the crap quality of youtubes compression the dvx still can kick some a$$.
