Ouch...it's semi-painful, but I appreciate your efforts of capturing it, so leave it up for now. The squeezed image and the overexposed parts are the result of filming it off the TV screen, I understand.
But as a cameraman myself, I just hate those quick wide-angle whip-pans and zap-zooms that don't allow you to actually BEHOLD the objects at hand. You'd think that a show about collectors would also be FOR collectors who would actually want to SEE the collectibles! But an obsessive fear of being boring makes these kind of shows cut away from a shot as soon as you get to an object, or linger anywhere, they even sped up the nice dolly shots. It's not a music video for chrissakes!
I am glad I got to see the result, but I am not sure if it's an OK piece or embarrassing in its hyperbole - hearing the host repeat the term "Tiki" that much could actually turn one off the word.
