Nice video.

You don't tighten the frames together at the end ?

Amazing to see yet another beekeeper who is so plainly fearless! Dark clothes, exposed skin, a minimum of smoke, smacking the nuc down to clear it of bees!   Cool.  Must be some very sweet and friendly bees in your apiary! Thanks ... I am quite impressed!

I would have placed the bottom nuc brood frames in the center first, then placed the top nuc frames divided to either side of brood frames. It looks to me as if you have all your filled brood frames on the left side of your hive box, (left as in facing the entrance).
