Hey Bob

Well I really liked the premise of your piece and the way so visually zoomed into the situation and back out with the use of the focal changes, this was interesting, thoughful and strong. However I kind of thought as a whole your film was a sandwich with great bread but not a lot of filling. I loved the lead in and lead out and the premise but the bit in the middle just left me a little un-satisfied. That said I liked the overall subtlty of the piece and your VO....so I hope theres more Thieda sandwiches to come!

Nice piece
Mat

Bob I liked the everyday around the house theme to this. Your shot selection was for the most part good. Good VO and music mixing.

This one had a nice relaxing feel to it, was enjoyable to watch.

It never stops to amaze me the way so many people can interpret a single theme...For a minimal amount of shooting time you did well here...clever take on a subject

Hi Bob.

You give us a lesson in how to change focus :)
How much expression there is if you use it the right way, and you do :)
Your choice of music is great and so is your VO.
Just a tip for your ending text.
Don't write everything you do (camera, editing, sound etc).
Just write "A film by Bob Thieda" or, "Filmed and produced by..."
It some how seems too amateurish if you write the same name many times.

Thank you for sharing and hope to see another Bob-film in uwol#9.

Hi Bob. At this late stage of posting my comments, for which I apologize, I canít really add much to what has already been said about your video. I would go along with most of it. You have certainly made creative use of your limited material thatís for sure. I enjoyed those lovely shots of the crocuses. Your VO is good and you have a very good eye for composition. It is a real pity that the weather got the better of you this time.
Oh yes - snap - you and Oliver seem to have had similar ideas when it came to choosing the music for this round :)
Looking forward to the next round - certainly hope it will be a better one for you weather-wise.
