Very interesting video: the use of animation over historical documents I felt worked extremely well. The balance of narration, soundtrack and visuals made for an extremely stylish piece of work: uncluttered yet stimulating.
This clip features a very clear and beautifully recounted narrative on the uses of Ginkgo in China and in Japan. The animation of snow, flying leaves and aurora is very impressive, but a little distracting at times and clashes with the classical Japanese and Chinese aesthetics. Mike liked the drawings especially the monk!
