Haha I found it very cute! The music was absolutely perfect. What song was it? and what font did you use at the very end for "Created by"? Very simple little concept but it definitely works!

Brought me in for first comment!

Ricci,

Although this is my first post, I've watched all the videos you've posted up to this point. Loved the action packed video, and I remember the anticipation of awaiting the arrival of your Letus.

Many of the videos posted here, I have enjoyed. I must say though, this ranks as one of my favorites. It's quite simple (from a content standpoint), however, the video speaks volumes.

Great choices on the soundtrack, and equal kudos on the setup and execution.

Look forward to seeing more.

Jay

Sorry, I just don't get it. Is it the music that I don't recognize?
With all the positive comments I'm wondering if I'm seeing the same video.

Jim,
What's the problem? I saw a stunningly beautiful shot, with a slow-moving bird silhouette, and this scary, anticipatory music that kept making my heart pound. I kept waiting for the damn thing to morph into an alien or something.

But then everything is ok and he just starts eating bugs or whatever. Fun times.

Ok. I get it. The background was just too soft for me and it didn't have the same impact. To each his own. Thank goodness we're all a little different. I may be even more so... ;-)

thank you

thank you guys for the kind comments to this video...Will, I appreciate your explaining to jim..
ok jim your probably right about this cheap unedited video (meaning no cs stuff and no magic bullet stuff )
to your high end standards with cs stuff or fcp and magic bullet..
I do agree though that the background is kinda soft and it could probably be better if I have that expensive software.....
as for me I'm like that tv commercial visa/mastercard (priceless)

canon xh a1 = 3,400 dollars
letus35 extreme = 1,200 dollars
cs or fcp = pricey (probably cost a leg or an arm)

capturing that bird at the right time and the right place =priceless

there are some things you just can't afford to buy (right now)

have fun.....and enjoy....

if I can only get that cs

thank you jim

Ricci,
I think the soft background was due to the letus' shallow depth of field not your software or lack of it. Anyway, don't take my comments personally. Everyone has there own view on things. Living only 30 miles from you and being very familiar with the environment here, you were very lucky indeed to be in the right place at the right time to capture that image.

jim

comments are well taken...in fact it helps to improve my way of doing video...
thats why i include "Priceless" comments to lighten up the conversation...
i also know about the softness of the background,,what i meant was i could probably improve the color and saturation or more with cs right...

i even added you as my buddy list

thanks once again.....
