Interesting Subject Matter - OK for the Price Review by Doyle

Subject Matter a 4, Script Delevery a 2, Production Elements a 3 (marked down for poor editing of narrative goofs and confused sentences), Computer Skills a 3, Professional Presentation a 3. Amply demonstrated the limitations of Photoshop. If you are interested in this subject you should find this worth the price.
