Looking for feedback on self rescue 'how-to' videos

I'm creating a number of how-to videos for my students that take advanced mountaineering courses with my school. The vids are designed so students can brush up on certain skills before coming to the course. Hopefully the general public will be able to bolster their risk management with these important tools as well....

Any feedback from folks that already know these skills well will be appreciated!

Thanks,
Josh

P.S. Please hold back on comments regarding 50 different ways to achieve the same thing :-)

Great video's. Very clear and neat.

Perhaps on the reverso video it would be a good idea to highlight some more that releasing the device without the MMO backup your second will be flying towards earth.

All seems to be fairly well done. I particularly liked added realism of the sling-stuck-on-hood.

Only things I didn't like was girth hitching a thin dyneema sling, not talking about the importance of choosing a solid piece of pro for the release sling, and treating the break line like it was a sausage right out he pan instead of having a firm grip.

As a side note, your/her dimples are really happy looking.
