From start to finish, recording and doing the work on the paper took 10 min. Now that may seem insufficient or haphazard, but the intent and the work were done with full focus. I think it more amazes me what we can create in a short period of time given constraints and decent tools. What took me longer was finding a video editor that could handle my video (removed from iphone and in .mov format). I settled on this great software called PhotoStage Slideshow Producer after reading the CNET Editor's review. I loved working wiht it. Intuitive and easy.
