Kevin Burns's name is more of a draw than Singer's to me. His Star Wars documentary was fantastic.
I had mistakeningly thought it would be Ken Burns until I read Adam's post. That has me significantly less excited. From what I've seen of Mr. Kevin Burns, he is a competent, TV biography or DVD extras documentarian. Which is to say, these documentaries can be thorough (in the case of Empire of Dreams, not even such), but lack depth.
Ken Burns, on the other hand, often finds cultural meaning in popular subjects. Some may find his work insufferable, but I think his documentaries are far more moving and rewarding. I would have liked to see Ken Burns would have done with this, especially since most of his films do not have this much moving images. It would be a new territory for him.
