I am but a mindful haberdasher. My words are stifled and whimsical whilst my thoughts run plenty and strong. I'll give you a hearty handshake if you look me in the eye. Please teach me thorough for I am slow of study. I've shared all I've ever learned, and learned everything from the act of sharing. But please, keep your words small, for I am but a mindful haberdasher...

Keith, you did a great job at showing people how to use imovie. When I was starting to use it I was searching the internet for tips because I had no idea of how to make a movie. It took me hours to figure everything out that you explained in 25 minutes. I wish I had seen this last December! Great movie!

Given that this is a screencast the movie resolution feels really small. At double size it is about right to be able to see what is going on, but very fuzzy. Since the current file is pretty small ~40MB, maybe it would be worth re-encoding for higher quality?

The content is very useful, but not being able to see what is going on definitely hinders the success of learning.
