Malibooya OP promises, OP delivers. Here's the final version.

Lower thirds will be changed to reflect the station's style when the piece airs on TV (channel 75 if you're a TWC NY customer).

I think it's much better than the first version I posted here a few days ago.

Malibooya Keep in mind that this is a rough cut. I've just met with my editor, and I've got big changes planned. Stay tuned, OP will deliver next week.

Mile30 Piece by piece; the skill-oriented aspects of life that used to be commonplace in America have been whittled down or 'replaced' with an 'easier' counterpart... to the point that new generations aren't really even aware that things were actually done manually before they were around.

... great, now I sound old...

swagfocuswagon I have automatic cars and 1 5 speed. I hate automatics. Was gonna swap for a 5 speeds on my cars but I dont have the currency to do it so I guess ill have to get some stick shift vehicles. And yes we have become very lazy. All my friends drive 5speeds. I am the only guy with an auto.

Love the vid! And I hate to be the bearer-of-bad-news, but...

You'll begin your companion piece about great American roadways the day we meet up for the mountain run! You could leave the lens cap on and still capture breathtaking footage!

As for the project, well...many hours went into this, and here is the final cut. The original was about 10 minutes too long, and deemed "too technical" by my editors. So I did my thing, and here it is.
