    Funny and interesting segment! That said, lumping gun battles and slugfests with the logger clips does a disservice to honorable working stiffs who made their living thru the hard and dangerous work of cutting down trees.
    My main comment, tho, is about an assumption on the part of current producers that we viewer/listeners must have constantly changing sounds and sights in order to stick around. You don’t have to zoom in and out or pan across every still. Just let us look at the still image for a few seconds! The amount of “Ken Burn-esque” movement over stills in this piece made at least this viewer sea-sick and longing for a stable picture.
    There’s also a strong tendency in audio these days (tho not in this piece) to put music or SFX behind every voice clip. Give your material and your audience some credit; if the material is strong, we will listen to and grasp just the words. You don’t need background music to hold our attention or to make sure we get the point. In fact, all the background fluff can be distracting.
