Well done video with some pretty slick shots in there! My critique would be to put as much into your audio as you do your picture. "Sound is half your picture" is a quote to live by. Not sure how you mic'd your interviews but I wanted better audio than what I heard.

Really a very nice piece you did for them! A little bit hallow on the interview sound, but that's what I do for a living, so I have to ding you there, but beyond that, a really nice job!

First off Very Nice job. But since you asked for C&C, here ya go. One I totally agree on the audio, Get the mic on them if at all possible. If you have to use an off body mic make it a shotgun and get it as close to your subject as possible. That will cut down on the hollow sound you hear. 2) Pick up the pace its about 30 to 40 seconds before you get to anything gripping. The shots are nice, but you need to get into the candy as soon as possible. 3) Pace your shots with your music. You have some great music to edit to with lots of beats. Make those edits hit the beats and speed them up. I like the super slomo shot of the truck in the power slide, but vary the shot up some couple seconds of normal speed then BAM< slow the Bam Fast... Get the idea?? Last) When you cut back and forth between footage and interview keep the music low but not so low. As you do a final mix, listen to it on a set of POS speakers. You may listen on 1000 dollar studio monitors, but the masses will listen as I did on the crappy speakers on my computer. The music almost vanished when i watched. Just some tip to help out please take them for what they are worth. Great job all around.
First step........ Take the lens cap off.
