    ugh… that was painful. The production quality is good, but shame on the folks (aka the committee, I assume) that wrote it. This video has no heart.

    That is truly awful. Great idea, horrible execution. I also think all actors should show this when they ask for more money.

    Seriously.

    Its horrible.

    BTW, its a 4 minute video and the credits start at like 2:08…REALLY?!?

    I watched it again, and now I’m actually almost angry. Did this cost money? Who the hell paid it, and more importantly who got paid? There’s 8 year olds with Windows Movie Maker who are wondering if they can buy this on Betamax.

    In all fairness… this was the rough draft version aired at an event yesterday. I imagine a re-edit would probably address some of the concerns expressed.

    It brings up memories of poorly put together powerpoint presentations with an ineffectual attempt at repetition for emphasis. I kind of think somebody needs to step in or really step up.

    Not the Foundation’s best work.

    Too repetitive; doesn’t tell a story or bring the viewer in, let alone accomplish its mission of selling Columbus.

    Diversity is more than minorities saying “diversity.” Columbus is an extremely diverse town, and this video doesn’t demonstrate that. Among other things.

    I normally like this kind of thing normally Walk…but you can’t edit awful footage into a good video.

    I agree. This is bad.

    I get the idea…but they’ve forgotten the power of “Show, don’t tell.”

    I think four minutes of entrepreneurs, artists, and community members talking about their experience would have a greater impact that people saying the words over and over.

    Was this created by the same person who thought the “Nothing tips like a cow” t-shirts at CMH were a good idea?
