    Momtastic; that is my rating for this video after careful consideration and review so that I might meet the one hundred character requirement and earn another merit badge in the comedy coup competition.

    The hype was okay, but I would have liked to see more of the actual characters doing the hype, showing us more of the comedy side. Talk is cheap show us the comedy next week. All the best in making top 5

    Video seemed a little bland this week, but it's hard to be funny and get all that info out in 90 seconds. Regardless, it was well produced and you seem very excited about it. I've really enjoyed your other videos, I was just hoping to get a little more HYPED UP with this week. Good luck in the rest of the competition!

    Most of the other week five videos I have watched worked at stringing their storyline through as well - I didn't see yours. How are the five students tied together? Do they have relationships with each other or is it more like a documentary of each of their pursuits? Just curious.

    Loved the cuts to the performances. Just as informative a visual as straight description from the team. Music was a little too loud in combination with the bad recording of dialogue. It was refreshing to see your straight pitch verses what I am usually seeing on here which is sell videos invested with comedy like it's trying to be fitted in any way possible and also seeing way too much of my run-on sentences.

    Did the premise of the series change? Initially it seemed more like a sitcom set at a bad Canadian university, and now it's got the behind-the-scenes sketch-comedy aspect in there as well, which seems new. Also, for large cavernous spaces like classrooms, best to have your principals on lavalier mics next time. Better sound quality is better presentation. Good luck, guys!

    Going forward my votes will go to storyline, substance and ability to deliver a sustainable, CBC suitable, comedy series. Curious to see if you can deliver that.

    Having went to the UofA I know of some great uses of that campus, that being said I don't know what tonality you're using that is going to be unique and different than any other show currently in production.

    The report card showcases the writer and the underlining tone we will establish for the show. The university is a for profit university so teachers and administration could care less about its students.

    It seems like a shame to just flash through your five different characters without giving the viewer a chance to learn about who they are and why they're different—characters should be the crux of any good show. I know you've only got 90 seconds to work with though!

    I like the diversity line! What campus is this at? There was a lot of information thrown at me, it felt a bit overwhelming. I don't see how this will be anything more than a Canadian Community, so I'd like to see what else (besides diversity) makes you different.

    Really good concept Maple U crew. I like that you celebrate Canadiana with the Maple U university theme. Also, a really good idea to have it take place on a campus as that allows for a never ending list of potential day players that could really spice up the sketch comedy. I'd like to keep watching this, good luck with the top 15!!!

    I feel like the description of the show has some possibility, but this video doesn't inspire me that you can really execute it. The button at the end works, but the whole concept of the video is static and pedantic. It feels like you guys don't understand the medium very well. Will your ideas translate?

    Our previous videos had a lot of crazy antics and information seem to have gotten lost as people were paying more attention to the antics. So we decided to go against that and focus solely on explaining the show. The Maple U team realize that a lot of folks were still wondering about the premise of the show, so we presented it here in a straightforward fashion.
