Yes, thank you. It's always a pleasure to listen to Dr. Shippey. I saw him present at a local university soon after the first Jackson movie was released and he was very informative and entertaining.

I have posted all three videos now, and they are very good apart from a technical problem in the first video with the webcam, I ended up just listening to the audio from Dr Shippey.
