It plays here, but I've been having nightmares about it ever since I first saw it. Eight foot long worms in HD burrowing through the human body and being pulled out slowly is just a tad tough to stomach.

[Bob Zelin]"David is correct. This documentary makes horror movies like "Saw" look like kindergarden. I don't know how you sat thru the raw footage - I guess you get used to anything."
Believe it or not, you do get used to it. I've been working with this material about 3 years now and quite honestly, this is not the worst of it. I think the Trachoma documentary coming up later this year is actually worse...... :-)
On the other hand, it makes me feel proud to be part of the team bringing these situations to the public eye, especially since this particular disease can be eradicated from the face of the earth using very simple methods. Definitely not for everybody for sure, but it's been an incredible set of projects and we'll have more information in the coming months......

I concur. I worked on a video once about open beating heart surgery, where the heart is kept beating while the surgery is performed. The thought of it had me worried, but when i started working on it it was no big deal.
The first thing i thought was just how cool it was to see the human heart like that. truly awesome! (it was also kinda scary to see all the fat surrounding the heart tissue...lower cholesterol, anybody?)
I only have a G4 800mhz... So I was looking for a little something. If everyone suggests the Kona 1 cards , then make me an offer. Ive been offered the Igniter with BOB, and a CineWave card...
