Upfront issue with coursepress

I have a few issues I need help with.
I am using a video as a background in the 2nd section on my homepage. However, there seems to be a white gap at the top of the video (under the title, which is a separate region above the video) and at the bottom. I am unable to remove this 1-inch size gap and it has no elements present.
I am trying to use coursepress pro with the upfront (fixer theme) but it doesn't seem to be rendering any pages, including virtual ones. If you could please take a look at it for me.
My logo has been chopped by my menu but I need both this size, is it possible to use a z-index to bring the logo to the front?
