Hey Nikki,
You will be putting all this later in one youtube video?  I guess if you
want to show and explain things extensively, a video-series would be more
Else it could become one video of several hours!
Anyhow I hope to be able to watch everything again and again afterwards! :-)

Wish you all goodluck

Kind greets
