Designer Christopher Harrell talks about, with a dose of various embedded graphics, pointing your skills toward something good. Harrell’s video was one of the winners in the What Matters to You scholarship competition for Vancouver Film School. It looks like home video, but that just adds to the charm.

    Very well presented.
    A pity that you attacked Israel, based on biased, propaganda-loaded information in the media.
    They are and will always be the people of God, and those who speak against them will be punished (by GOD Himself).

    Nice use of numbers and mix of charts…
