like said earlier, for me at least, it is hard to critique something that someone just tells you, is it good, bad, and ending?
i understand you are looking for advice because you are just starting out, but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense when all these kids are asking for things like color grading and such. learn to use the equipment you spend you hard earned money on, then once you establish a good sense of skill with your equipment, then you can go into post and make the colors of your videos better. Its not black and white when it comes to filming, especially when every kid has a t2i/t3i ect.. and expects the quality to be amazing right off the bat.
I think kids(and this includes myself because i am a college student still) should be look more into advice on how to properly set up a shot and execute it, rather than properly color grading
