Okay. First of all, never record with sound recording enabled. It severely slows down your footage and makes all the motion very choppy. Secondly, do not show plumbbobs and speech bubbles. If you have Nightlife, use the cheats "plumbbobtoggle off" and "showHeadlines false". There is a hacked object somewhere on MTS2 that can remove sleeping ZZZs for you. Never show the sky inside a house, use the Ceiling Tiles which are also available on MTS2. And ALWAYS record with walls up. Things should look as realistic as possible, and real houses do not have walls cutaway.
I noticed alot of surrealism and symbolism throughout the movie, so I don't know what was intended, but know that it cannot rain on a sunny day or a clear night. I don't know if there's any way to put clouds in the sky, but it could not be raining in that kind of weather. Also it couldn't be raining inside, clearly.
This would have been a good video if not for those mistakes. We all make mistakes (http://forums.sims2community.com/showthread.php?t=35000), but that's no excuse. Be more careful with the next one and it might be good.

the thing with the sky in the house is intended... although i don't remember why exactly.
i didn't have nightlife at the time i made this, and was not quite sure how to get rid of the speech bubbles and such.
Thank you for your criticism, though!

Actually, even without Nightlife you could have gotten rid of the Plumbbobs by entering "boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true", shift-clicking on the plumbbob and choosing "Force error". Then when the error message choose "delete".

Apart from the sleeping Zs and the sky being viewed and cut away walls, I really enjoyed it.
(Great song too, but I wish it went on for longer!)
