    I mean... no that isn't a large pizza even by New Zealand standards. No one orders from Pizza Hut here because it's a rip off. Should've ordered from Hell Pizza or literally anyone else. Pizza Hut does not speak for the pizza sizes of NZ.

    I feel like Sunny88P, so I hesitate to comment, but there are some easy improvements to make this vlog a lot better:

    1. Don't make so many cuts of the same scene in a row, in the intro there were about 5 in the first 20 seconds alone. Try planning what you're going to say ahead of time and go for a walk or something so that the cuts seem more planned and less unprofessional.

    2. I would recommend using a tripod or some sort of stabilizing device, unless you're going for that shaky cam horror film style.

    3. Zooming into people's faces seems a bit gimmicky to me, but I guess that's personal preference. 

    I keep watching this hoping that you get better because you're just starting off vlogging/editing, but so far it's still one of the last things I watch here. There's a lot of people at RT who I'm sure would be willing to help you, I hope you take this criticism well, because I really want to look forward to watching these.

      While your criticisms are legitimate, and certainly would make for a more 'professional' vlog, I feel that's not the point of these vlogs. Half the fun of these videos is that Barbara is inexperienced with making vlogs and editing. She will naturally improve as she continues, and frankly these really aren't poorly put together at all.


      I'm certain she knows that there are plenty of people she works with every day who could give her tips, or help her edit, or even just provide her with better software. The charm of these videos however, is that her edits are sometimes a bit clunky, and she's just winging it and goofing around and simply being herself and having fun.

      Name one other show that has 5 cuts in the span of 20 seconds of a talking head. If it was truly necessary, she could at least pan in and out with each cut or switch to a different angle. I'm fine with the sparkle transitions, and like I said it was just my opinion about zooming into faces. I just would rather see and hear more behind the scenes stuff than the pores of someone's face. I wasn't trying to be rude by commenting, I'm not just some internet troll. I've been a fan of Barbara since the Internet Box (RIP) days. This is just my opinion, and I wouldn't comment if I didn't think she was capable of doing better, but that's my advice: take it or leave it.

    If any of you ever want to visit NZ again, it would be super neat if you came as a guest for the Armageddon expo! It's a poor excuse for a convention but its the only thing we have in NZ and it would be really cool to meet any of you! Most people aren't willing to fly down to NZ so we don't really ever get anyone; it would definitely be the best expo yet if you guys came!

    • IllusiveMan117 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Immortal

      4 months ago

      Thats either tomato sauce or pasta sauce. It's like chips and chips. In England you have hot chips and bagged crisps, in America you have bagged chips and hot fries in Australia they are both just chips. We understand from the context what kind of chips you want and also what kind of tomato sauce. 

      It is weird that the kiwis gave them "ketchup" with pizza but then kiwis are weird. :P

    YESSSS, MY COUNTRY!!!! Okay to be fair, I don't think Pizza Hut here really has different sizes, so their pizzas are technically all "large". Probably should've ordered from Dominoes, or gone to a restaurant to get a bigger pizza haha. But hey, looks like you had fun here nonetheless!! (Seeing the Sky Tower made me miss home; I'm in Dunedin for uni at the moment but I'm so used to seeing the Sky Tower from almost anywhere where I live in Auckland.)

      About the pizza sizes: Even if they are all large the one they got would be considered a small at best in America. Hence the "how utterly reasonable." LOL
