So as I review images being used I am wrestling with the question of how much is too much. I recall that Ken Burn's lengthy documentary on the Civil War seemed to reuse certain images that had emotional impact repeatedly. Of course he also zoomed in close to the image and then panned across it to create a sense of moving pictures.
I would like to think that certain reuse of dynamic pictures is acceptable if it helps to either:
- Reinforce the surrounding content
- Serve to make the information more memorable.
