In working for Explore.org and compiling 100’s of hours of web cam footage I was able to log many notes and make markers in the material to then pull selects for lots of content to accompany the already short format documentary that I assisted on.
Here are the video shorts I edited for Explore.org Web Cam Pearls
Here is an example of the notes that I compiled to be able to pull the selects to accompany commentary by the Katmai National Park Rangers
