I think this is a great idea, a collection of video's of clayart members at
work. Someone would have to edit it, someone would have to attend to the
details of production. HMMM. One two hour video with five minutes each of
24 potters. Or maybe a DVD would be possible with much more time...How much
video time can be on one DVD?

person for the first pull, etc., etc., etc. :-) (Big GRIN)

But, at least you're thinking about it. I like that!

The reason one edits a video or a film is to cut out the crap. What was
suggested as a polished, cohesive video of different people and different
styles. At least that the premise I'm proceeding on.
