Perhaps Stephen initially forgets to create a selection window area in this walkthrough. After he does that the video demonstrates the differnce in the results.
If you root around in the Civil 3D videos on his channel, you may see parts of the Framework for Civil 3D at work.

It always strikes me how important being setup to do a conversion like this beforehand is. More the half the issue is understanding what Civil 3D, Map 3D, and ArcGIS want to eat.
You also might have to deal with a coordinte system conversion of the SHP data too. A canned template (.dwt) file can handle that publishing detail easily enough.
