My first video with Q: Cromañón Santuary

This is my first video with Q. It's about the Cromañón Santuary.
On 30 December 2004 in the Cromañón nightclub of Argentina the blaze was started when a pyrotechnic flare (a popular device in New Year's Eve celebrations) was set off and ignited foam in the ceiling. The materials used in the building for decoration were flammable melting into a rain of fire. The fire killed 194 people and 700 injuried. The tragedy was symbolic of goverment failure in Argentina, since the club had received a permit despite lacking basic fire safety measures like fire extinguishers.

Good job on the video. Such a tragic event.
I noticed some of the photos were of young children, is it the custom to have children at these nightclubs?

Thanks crewl1!
Cromañón was a nightclub. But that day it was a recital. In a recital can enter kids (with their parents).
Cromañón capacity was 1000 people, and that day was 3000. Addition 4 of the 6 doors of emergencies were closed so that nobody "enter without paying". And the fire extinguishers did not work.
That's why so many people died.

Great job on the video. Very sad, though... So many young lives lost.

On a more positive note, the video looks very professional. Great composition & nice processing, too. It also demonstrates what a capable little machine the Q is.

Excellent video. Looks and sounds professional in every way. Has this been shown on tv? Had no idea the Q could be used for such high quality video. You have amazing video skills.

Remember this disaster being televised on our US news long ago. So tragic and sad. Your documentary will help people remember.
thanks for sharing
