Breathing & High Notes

First off, I was wondering if anyone knew any techniques to help with having a longer playing time before taking a breath or any exercises to help with breathing too much when playing. I don't have a lot of lung opacity and I take a lot of breaths. Also, when I'm playing high notes sometimes my lips sorta buzz and I thinks it's my embouchure getting too small, but I just want some feedback on that and how to help that. Thanks!

Flutter tonging?

Hi I've been playing flute for about 2 years now and I'm at the intermediate level. At a band camp I went to this summer, and got my vibrato down (with help from my director and a college student) that the guy at my solo and ensemble contest said I needed to learn....But then when the college girl who was helping me said 'oh you need to learn flutter tonging' I was like 'o wat' so now I need help. 

After two months, it's finished!

 I finally finished what has, up until now, been known as 'Percussion Driven Work in Progress (End of Day ________)'. It's called 'The War Continues' and at seven minutes fifty seconds, it is the third longest piece I've composed and is most definitely by far the most complex. I tried to use flutes to bring in a lighter feeling amid the darkness in certain areas.
I want to say thank you to everyone who gave me feedback and advice--it REALLY helped.
