No, I didn't get a chance to download the video. I'll try to get it when you upload it again.
My Godfather was his family's historian, and I produced a genealogy tape for him many years ago. When he passed away in '07, I redid it as a DVD, similar to what you're talking about. He traced his heritage back to Germany, also in the 1500s. Oh, what I'd give to have footage of him in 3D! He was a gifted artist and musician, a tremendously generous humanitarian and my best friend. He's the one who gave me my love of Shaw's Garden, and I was fortunate enough to get HD footage of him there before he died. I feel close to him just being there.
What I'm inclined to do is offer this video to the Garden as a tribute to him. He was a patron of the arts, and of the Garden, so it would be great to know that people were seeing this and being reminded of him. Of course, I don't know if 3D is at a level of public awareness close enough for the Garden to know what to do with this video. Oh well, I have quite a bit of work to do on it before I'd think about approaching them.
