I just wanted to let you know, that I'm still involved in one big project that
ends on 12 of May. After that I will have time to get back to snowdrift.
No I didn't notice, that you continued with the video. Actually that's cool! I
now watched it and there are things i really like and others where I'm not
sure. But I like the idea that we could work together on it. I guess it was a
bit tricky to continue with my file. For example I used an extra plugin for the
camera movments which is called "sniper". There's a tutorial out there that
explains how it works. Maybe we could make one Jitsi session where I explain
all the stuff I did in Blender so it's easier to also work on it. I guess you
figured out most of it yourself by now, but I still think it would be helpful.

I agree with your points overall and glad to hear about the updates. I
agree that some iteration to get to "see that the video and text is
working well together" is what I want too. For whatever reasons that may
be partly miscommunication, I felt pressured to get something "just
right" before handing it over, which doesn't feel like the right approach.
FWIW, Stephen gave me some feedback on the latest script that may lead
to a new revision, but the recent one I posted is still the latest worth
working on visuals for.
I agree with you and Robert that avoiding the number-focused end stuff
is better. I'm happier with the direction now. I think some iterative
process back and forth between audio and visuals will get us to the best
