Having started uni in september I've had my first chance to shoot with some decent kit (DVX, Redheads, a Mizar), which makes a change! So here are my first two projects:

The First
The Second

Any thoughts or advice would be really helpful. Thanks!

Hello therre,

Welcome to the forum. As a fellow film student, here are my thoughts:

Overall, VERY GOOD for a first effort, believe me! I'm two-thirds of the way through my degree and that's still better than some work I've seen from people I know! So, good start. My main points of criticism would be in the first video, you have a slight bit of over-exposure on the woman's shirt. It is only slight, but I believe it is there. It's well exposed otherwise, though. There are also a couple of shots where the lighting is unmotivated (where is it coming from?).

In the second video, I love the black-and-white segment (even though the editing is not noir, but that's not what we're commenting on!) but I'm not so keen on the outdoor segment. It just looks a little too cold to me, though this of course could be what you were going for. If so, congrats again - did you do that in camera or in post?

Regards,
James Martin.
