Review of Two Chinese Schools

This is definitely a high school piece about an interesting and little talked about subject--the differences between being Chinese and Taiwanese. The narration is roughly recorded and the narrator still needs some experience in the vocal booth. Some of the actualities at the beginning sound better than the narration. Some of the actualities in the last half, are recorded in an open large space and the voice has reverb on it. There are jump cuts and ambience clipping throughout the piece. This is unfortunately distracting from the content of the piece which again is something that most mainstream Americans know little about. I would recommend re-doing the narration and cleaning up the clipping and jumpy editing. It would be worth doing to make this piece work for broadcast.
