  2. I, for one, have no idea what you mean by "flow". Can you explain better?

    And why did you add black bars above and below? That's not necessary to keep the aspect ratio with YouTube videos and they're distracting.

    I don't know if it's intentional or not, but the flashing black frames are really annoying and gives me a literal headache!

    To give the video a "flow" as you call it, it needs to tell a story. At the moment there is no story, just a collection of shots cut to music. If you want to make it "more responsive to the music" might I suggest a better track. Instead of one with a beat you could try a more ethereal one and do dissolves rather than cuts. Whatever genre of music you edit to will give a different feel to the video overall.

    Techniques can be taught. Artistic talent and vision has to come from within. If you were to just follow the techniques you're taught, your videos will end up looking like thousands of others that use the same techniques. Video is like any art, take what you know and like and create from there.

    You sort of have a beginning, middle and end -- which is really the simplest explanation of story.

    Here's a challenge: duplicate your timeline and try to get it down to 2 minutes. It will force you to make some decisions you've avoided. (1:30 if you're brave.) See if you like the flow better after that.
