    That was awesome. Smooth, kept my attention. Not jerkey. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks for the kind words. Windows movie maker - 1st time I've used it, fairly simple but quite effective.

    Just used the fade in / fade out for each clip & did a zoom out on the still image at the end.

    Just found this on another thread

    Opportunities
    - shorter cuts (2-5secs norm; occasional longer if there is a dramatic reveal at the end
    - overall should be 1-3mins max. This means the 'director'has to make tough choices on content

    Will take that onboard & do a redux!

    Good advice
    We all start out wanting to shot different angles of a POI (ie. Bridge). This is fine to get the BEST shot to select for the final cut.
    Btw- I love the early "right roll" over the water shore to shore while bridge and horizon were in back ground.
