Critique would REALLY be appreciated for this!

See warning in the video, I really mean it. Also HD is a must, sorry to press this, but otherwise the quality is just not worth it. Also, if it starts skipping and lagging, please restart, or pause and allow it to catch up to itself. It seems to be a little temperamental.
Besides that, I would really like you amazing editors to critique this. It's for a project, a huge project.
It's a group project. Each group chose a charity and were told to create a presentation based upon that charity. Each of the groups would compete against each other to see which presentation was the best in the class. The finalists will then go on to "battle" the other finalists from the other classes in my grade.
The winner gets 5000 dollars for their charity. Yes, $5000.

So this is a pretty big deal. And the project required a artistic component. So I did a video.
My charity runs a online anon forum, and counselling to help people deal with all kind of issues, like the ones in the video, and I thought this would be the intro to our presentation.

And I would REALLY appreciate critique, what you liked, what you didn't like, if there is anything I should add, take away, or change?
It would be REALLY appreciated! :D

Also, if you think this is too strong to show to my class (grade11), please let me know!

...wow. This was amazing! It totally got the message across, and was presented in such an interesting way. Reminds me of the F*in Perfect music video actually. But this video puts the fact out there that people commit suicide because of so many reasons, a lot of them having to do with their peers. I wouldn't change this at all. Amazing job well done. :)

I really think I received the message I was supposed to here.
I think MAYBe one thing you could change is the length of the clips just a TINY bit. There were some clips where it was more of a... Different? Shot, and I couldn't tell right away what it was about, but it moved too fast so I couldn't tell. That's just a MAYBE though. This is excellent. I would keep it just the way it is.

And maybe you should keep the aspect ratio of the video the same for the whole video, or consistent parts of it if the "movie" effect is needed. :)

Wow this was totally amazing there's all this effect that gives this this amazing look, then out of no-where you tell us about for the time to watch this video, really got me surprised and quite dad at that thought. it was totally un-expected and a real eye opened to that idea. I love this idea of the grey scale and the slowness. There was one part seemed a tad of from 0.42-47, it's in that section where there seems to be an extra beat what ever we'll call it, it with they boy on the chair, i think, right i hope this helps. and i hope you do a great job

Oh wow, THANK YOU! I really appreciate that feedback!
Oh, I know what the issue is, one of the beats is a tiny bit early, I'll see if I can fix it.

Thank you once again!

I don't know yet.
They let us know today, but I'm really sick.
So I'm waiting on pins and needles for my friend to text me.
In like 3 hours is the class, so I've got some time to kill.
