So I did something I never thought I’d be able to do…I went to Marineland, with the specific purpose to make a video asking trainers and workers questions to hear their false answers. It couldn’t have worked more perfectly and I now have ten minutes of video footage of workers telling me incorrect facts about the animals or how they just clearly “don’t know.” It’s really sad.
My question is, should I blur out their faces somehow? And if I should, what program should I use to do that? I have a mac with iMovie and that’s what I was planning on using for the editing. Is there anything else you guys think I should be aware of before posting this lengthy video?

It is one of my best memories in my photographing experience.
