Re: First graduates of Children's program take Shodan Exam

Well, it looks like fun! I would have liked to have seen a little less editing so that I could get a better picture of how the grading went as a whole.
Another graduate of the children's program, Bianca Verar made this clip from her own camera. Bianca is 15 years old and she made the clip first and then sent it to me to see what I thought. I told her that it looked like a movie trailer and that I wanted to see the movie the trailer came from! Being from the younger generation, she made it from a perspective the youth are more familiar with and she was apparently most interested in what she could do with her editing skills rather than showing the more technical aspect of judging a grading. These boys though have always moved as fast as they possibly can and all in all, the edited version was not an unreasonable depiction of what actually happened.

Best wishes,
Jorge Garcia
