Pros:
The eye effect at the end was cool.
Some of the effects looked pretty neat.

Cons:
Too much jumping around before the fight.
Some of the effects didn't follow the actor's hands as well as they could have.
The crazy japanese anime talk at the end was weird.

Overall it was pretty cool. Keep working, I'm sure you'll get better.

I know it's on YouTube, but i imagine the quality of film was also pretty average to begin with (correct me if i'm wrong but i don't think you used a good camera in my opinion).

Pro:
* The negative change, although simple, was highly effective in my opinion and looked very good.
* The 'satanic star' symbol looked great combined with your hand movement around it.
* For a test which was done a few months or more back, this is impressive.

Con:
* The effects seemed to be of a lesser quality than the general "look" of the film and seemed to stick out a little in comparison.
* Agreeing with Mequellios, there was a lot of ariel moves which are fine by themselves, but it was too heavy at the beggining and not enough nearing the end. Basically, needs a little more balance.
* Again, agreeing with Mequellios, most of the effects which weren't stationary moved around very roughly from point A to B when following the desired object/movement of the human body.

try darkening some of the spells then if you masked anything use feather so it blends in

Pretty good.

Most of the effects were nicely done- the biggrst flaw in this is that your camera gave poor lighting quality to the movie.
