By the way, there seems to be some confusion, so I want to clarify:

There were various old scripts and audio. Some visual work was done. The
visual team indicated a need to change the second half of the script. In
the process of reflecting on the whole goals and how much to fit in the
time, this new script above was written.

The new script addresses problems with the entire thing. I don't provide
it only to use the second half. Please adjust the timing and visuals for
the *entire* video to fit the new script and audio which has a much
simpler, cleaner flow overall.

I'm not okay with cutting the second half of this with any of the parts
from earlier scripts. This update is/was a departure (as stated in
original post) which does a better job as a complete unit.

I look forward to a new draft of visuals matched to just this new script
and audio, and we can discuss any feedback then so we can get toward
actually finalizing this.
