Beautiful stuff Walter!

The only thing I'd say is to cut down the number of slider moves.

I always look at dolly shots or slider shots as kind of special shots and when you have too many of them I think it kind of loses it's "wow" factor.

I know it's tough sometimes cause slider moves look awesome but too much of a good thing dilutes the effect.

I guess one other thing is that it's ok to let the camera stay still and linger on something every now and then. Give us a chance to take in the scene instead of tilting and panning.

Lastly, check out our challenge that we have here. You can see what it's all about at The UWOL Challenge - Wildlife & Outdoor based film competition

Awesome Walter.

I loved the entire movie.

As I have a new slider, myself, I will probably fall into the same trap, of possibly using it too much.

I am hoping for it to warm up a little, so that I can go out and create something as wonderful as you have.
