Here’s the latest story in an interesting documentary project that’s mapping Main Streets. I like it because it’s non-narrated and it’s full of voices and “nat” sound. I actually thought, however, that it went on too long and I’m curious what you all think. Take a look at the comments posted with this story. Some people really hated the main “young” voice heard throughout.
