David asked about one page of a video script. I have written one video
script for a 40-minute video, and it took well over 400 hours from start to
finish. This was about in line with estimates that Eastman Kodak published
in a white paper on video production. There is a lot of work involved in
video, and I gained newfound respect for scriptwriters!
