How do I Download the Video?

Notice: Watch me Edit!

These videos do not contain audible dialog. There are annotations to guide you through what you see me do, but there is no sound. The video is intended to be silent, so you can put some music on and let the creative juices flow. These videos are very competitively priced as a result.
