Canon Vixia HV30

This is my first attempt to make anything close to a movie. It is very short (30secs) if you omit the intro and closing credits. Two of my sons graciously played along with me, making this experience very excitably for me. I know this is as basic as a shoot can be, but this is my first. The shots are not leveled (noticed that in editing) and all I had to light the scene with was a two headed workshop lamp which I pointed up toward the ceiling (small space and not to blind my talents). I am so not happy about the audio (Sennheiser MKE 400).... I would be upset if I do not get needing advice from you guys, because I do NEED the help. Please post, comment, suggest.... The quality of my film making future is at stake!!! (LOL).. Let's give it longevity!!!....

I will practice doing daily 30sec shorts in anticipation for my spring break movie. It is challenging, but I get such a rush in shooting, editing and sharing! and by the way, I edit on the Pinnacle Studio Plus v11.... I know, I know... I will switch over asap ( financially possible- lol)...

So in short I used my HV30, tripod, Sennheiser MKE 400 mic, and a two headed workshop lamp (which i burned myself on).... Let me have it Vimeo!!! I got to hear from you!!!
