Tim,

Thanks so much for posing. I appreciate all you say.

"Perhaps if you focused on his back-story more to show us the mind of the collector, it would make a larger emotional impact when he shows us a **few** of his odd collectibles, upon which his mind places incredible value." I can see where you're coming from. This 30-min. piece is a "sub piece" from my feature length, 90-minute documentary about Mr. Hoffman's career, advice, etc. in documentary filmmaking.

Thanks again for your comments:)

Cheers!
Bruce

Oh I see!!! I had no idea that it was part of a larger piece! well, then that explains a good deal. I have not had the pleasure of seeing the whole piece, but I am sure that that would answer all of my comments. Thanks for the clarification!

That got posted before I was done...

Anyway, I hope that helps, and I look forward to seeing more likes and comments in the future, perhaps!

Cheers!

706 people viewed this video before I did, and I am only the second person to comment... And to be completely honest, Bruce, I wasn't going to comment either.

In my humble opinion, I think that most people didn't comment because they lost interest, and I think that happened for one fundamental reason: the video lacked a certain consistency.

The beginning and the end were great, in my opinion! You had an interesting interview with sound effects and first-rate b-roll, and I was hooked!

But then the focus **and style** of the video changed and became about the collectibles instead of the collector. And let's face it, no one is going to watch a video about an admittedly weird collection. No one can relate to the collection because their value, for the most part, exists solely in the mind of the collector.

But I **was** enthralled with the story of a man who lost all and recovered and wants to build on it. Perhaps if you focused on his back-story more to show us the mind of the collector, it would make a larger emotional impact when he shows us a **few** of his odd collectibles, upon which his mind places incredible value.

I don't mean to step on any toes. I promise. But I know that I get frustrated when no one comments on my videos, especially after a year or so. I just wanted to lend my humble opinion and constructive criticism as to why your video may not have been as well received as you would have liked.
What do you think?

Very nice documentary on a documentary film maker. I watched this when you put it up and should have commented on it then =)

The guy is a little strange but seems like the perfect type of person to make documentaries.
