Your video link isnt working. Try uploading it to Vimeo.

If I were to offer any advice to someone coding a web page. It would be to keep it simple. Whatever that means to you.
Through some series of events I ended up with style sheets and 13 pages to maintain. I like my site now but it's taken a lot more work than it could have taken. Had I just used tables and images to create it I wouldn't have had to worry about browser compatibility and well, learning css. Long story short I've spent a lot more time on it than I'd have liked to.
Another suggestion is to limit the amount of images you use to decorate your web site to little or none. They are for the most part distracting from your art. I'm mostly referring to the hideous graphical side menu's people love to make. It's not 1997 anymore
If I were to remake my site now I would probably use frames *gasp* and create my gallery using BananaAlbum. As seen on struves site cgsculptor.com. Maintaining individual pages of any kind for peices of art sucks. BananaAlbum also resizes the image appropriately for your screen which is much better than lightbox which just blows out the sides and leaves people confused.
Of course, blogs can serve their purpose well for "setting up a quick portfolio site"
PS For the Animators out there: Use Vimeo.com or something other than YouTube if you can help it. YouTube's quality is horrible! If you have to use YouTube though add this to the end of your link for higher quality &fmt=18
