Jumping Lamp Spoof

I’m new to Blender Artists, though I’ve been dabbling with blender for about a year. Kind of a hobby. I’m doing this little animation for a school video (I’m a teacher). Here’s a picture and a link to the video. Looking for any contructive criticism. I have some skill with the modeling side of 3D but animation isn’t my strength–especially having a hard time getting a good quality render.
