Time to get serious. I would greatly appreciate all forms of feedback on this:
I am currently working on a documentary about the history of the Voice of America's transmitting station here in Kuwait. The station was first established shortly after the end of the first Gulf War while Kuwait was still cleaning up after the Iraqi invasion of August 1990. The initial rapid-deployment temporary station was built by a volunteer group of IBB engineers out in the desert north of Kuwait City. It was setup on land which was once a Kuwait Government shortwave station. That station's land was occupied by the Iraq army as a forward supply base. That base was obliterated by Coalition forces in February 1991. We are still finding unexploded munitions on the land to this very day.
I was one of the engineers that help setup the station, and the stills used in this opening sequence are the only images available of this operation. I have thought long and hard about how to open this documentary and the private link " " is to a screen test of the proposed opening segment I have just finished cutting, but without the narration track (to be added later).
That temporary station was replaced with a permanent one a couple of years later. And, today, I am managing that station.
As I said at the beginning, I would greatly appreciate feedback on this proposed opening.
