It is suiting that I made this video for a class at Stanford and flunked because I refused to follow instructions. This video was supposed to be 5-7 minutes (instead it is more than 14), and I was supposed to intersperse it with B-roll footage (but I decided to use none). I felt that all 14 minutes deserved to be heard and couldn’t bear to cut out any of it. I also felt that any B-roll I might put in would merely dilute the aura of Mark’s captivating presence. I don’t think I deserved to flunk, but you can judge for yourself. The class was “Intro to Film and Video Production” taught by Jan Krawitz, in case you’re curious.
