Actually I think that's the real problem is that things that I think of as vastly simple have become substantially more complex. Reduce the audio of a single mono track. Add a transition to a B-roll shot. Add a super above B-roll. Cross fade audio tracks. Transition between sound bites. Just what pops into my head at the moment.

The secondary storyline is more of a problem than a solution. When you edit the B-roll clips they are inherently associated with what's below, even only if as Randy Ubillos says in the editor's head, though they are associated by being a time-specific event that even a 30-year EDL can understand. The secondary storyline however is physically connected to some other part of the primary and not associated with the time-related event directly below it. The connected clips work as a concept, but the execution has left it flawed.

All the best,
