Hi Chris.
I think you have a strong video, that can be sold as an documentary to a TV channel.
Like it very much and can't find much to complain about. VO is fine with relaxing tempo, and I think thats important in any docymentary video.
Just one thing, as other have pointed out, I think the opening shot is a bit too long. My suggestion is to listen to what Catherine says about this matter :)

Looking forward to the final piece.

All the best

Chris, I really enjoyed the video. My one comment, and again may be due to compression is the opening shots didn't seem to follow the narration. Other than that I think you atchived your goal of having the "Ken Burns" effect by using and paning through old B&W stills and recent color stills. Waiting for the final product. Bob

Bob, Geir and all... thanks for commenting.

I was expecting my achival materials any day when the deadline approached. I added the "front end" as a placeholder and hoped I would have additional photos to add in place of all that prior to submission, but alas, I did not.

Thanks for sufferring through a terribly long, mostly "static" front piece. It was not what I had planned.

Now that I HAVE my archival stuff... I am feeling practically overwhelmed. I will have something "rough" for final, but know I have a long ways yet to go..

Looking forward to everyone's finals.
