Hint: There are certain limitations to viewing images on television. Large groups of people, panoramic scenery shots and fine detail do not show up well and should be limited. In addition, vertical shots often need to be cropped.

On a separate sheet of paper, clearly print or type the desired titles. We cannot take information off of reels or boxes.
