Peanut Butter Bandit and the Ave Maria (Hitman)

Jeez, I really haven't been posting on here very often... you can read this or just skip to the video. Just please leave some feedback on the video!
 
Well recently I just completed my first year at the University of Western Ontario in MTP (Media Theory and Production) which seemed pretty basic for first year and never really involved any hands-on-work. Instead it was meshed into a similar course, MIT (Media, Information, Technology), which involved talking about media and technology within society and how it effects us. It was interesting enough and I luckily scored those 80's, but I guess it just left me craving some of that camera work that originally directed me to go to Western. 
 
Almost immediately after arriving back home, I hung out with some buddies and explained that I would like to makes some videos but also mentioned that I really didn't feel like having to do each step - so my friend Mike volunteered to write scripts for me. He is going into Brock for Drama which involves scriptwriting, so for both of us - this is good to put on our resumes. His sense of humour is rather strange, but amusing. 
 
Anyway, so here it is - Peanut Butter Bandit. We have only made the introduction here. Let me explain that I filmed and edited this with only my own knowledge, and not from first year (it was too general and never covered it). I used Sony Vegas Pro 9.0d to edit this, and filmed with a Hitachi-BD7HA.  Watch this in 720p if you can! I apologize for the overridden mic at a few scenes, but I still have not purchased any sort of boom mic and was using a lower quality one.  
 
Remember to leave a comment on youtube and rate! Thanks and also give some feedback here! Part 2 will be coming down the road.

I just wanted to get this back into the forum's again and would appreciate comments on here to bump the thread if you like the video. Any views to the video are appreciated!
 
Thanks! Here is another one that was filmed about a year ago, but I had just recently updated it with a few effects to give it a more retro vibe... definitely when I was still figuring out a lot of stuff though..

Needs a real mic, but certainly a good start.

Yeah I am looking into buying one when I can afford it... was really the biggest issue when filming this unfortunately. Any recommendations for a good microphone that can capture distant sound would be appreciated for around or under 200 bucks...
 
Not really wanting to spend 400 bucks on one of the great quality Shure mics or anything like that though - hoping these things just come when jobs call for it.
 
Thanks for the comment and the view though :)
