    I don't know if it's your actors or the microphone, but audio clarity is a bit of a problem in the first scene.

    I would have liked an insert of the Falcon in the outdoor scene, however fake it might have looked Photoshopped in—in fact, the fakeness could have been funny. When the actors point and gesture at it, our eyes expect a cut to what they're looking at. I'm guessing you were trying to hold back the effects until the flying reveal toward the end, but… eh.

    The effects look good though. You did a good job lighting the actors and graphics to match.

    I'd have tightened up the edit between "we're gonna crash" and the graphics scene outside.

    I liked the matter-of-fact tone of the comedy. And the sly reappropriation of the credits music when we think it's over.

    Rick McCallum loves you!
