This is the original 3 minute sizzle reel that was submitted to PBS that explains the basic show concept. After making this video, we cut our first full segment for further consideration and review.
We wanted to focus on three buildings per hour long episode. PBS worried that devoting so much time to one particular building would make a boring show. We insisted that we needed the time to tell the full story of the building. I’m glad we did. 15-18 minutes per building seems just about right!
