It might not have big-budget quality
Indeed it might not.

Okay, fine, instead of being trollish and passive-aggressive, I'm just going to say it. Maybe someone has to; he doesn't seem to be catching others' indirect hints.

The writing and pacing are poor, stilted, and formulaic, when they're even coherent. The visuals need a lot more work to be satisfactory and original, let alone appealing, and the animation is unintentionally funny. The voice-acting is poor but, given your resources, mostly forgiveable. The videos are overly dramatic to the point of presumptuousness, with a huge portion of the screen time being devoted to credits and intros/outros.

To be frank, it's just not very good, and it doesn't even appear that you put enough effort into any area of the film-making process. At the very least, you probably need to put more effort into getting others to read and honestly critique your scripts, and try to find people with talent to fill in the areas where you yourself are weak, such as voice-acting and animation. You also need to be more honest with yourself about the value of what you're creating, which is amateurish (and nothing wrong with that, for an amateur, but you're never going to improve by giving yourself a huge pat on the back in the form of ten credit appearances per short clip!).

I apologize for being so negative, and I know you have no budget or professional staff, but the Internet is full of people who, under the same circumstances, have produced far better. I do hope that, by pointing out that there are problems, I've helped you more than I've hurt.
