    Well edited and put together, with some really nice shots. Not often easy to make a documentary that really makes any point in 5 minutes, but I enjoyed that one, and some good issues covered. Planning a documentary myself later in the year, so always good to see others such as this. What it were you using, out of interest?

    Keep it up!
