Vidar,
Very pretty. The underwater shots really add to the piece. I hope there will be more of them as time goes on. I was a little confused at the beginning. Are those mountain valleys or closeups of rocks with green moss?

Hi Vidar.
That was some great footage.
Liked the way you show the rainy days :)
The clip of the plant from under water way up to the flower was great.
Also the small fish, very good.
In fact I visited the Sognefjord this summer, (in fact 2 times).
I had to make some glacier shots.
I drove from Lom to Sogndal, also visited Urnes Church.
Sognefjorden is great, I think in your final video you must mention that The Sognefjord in fact is the second largest fjord in the world :)
Maybe some shaky clips here and there, but all in all a good presentation of what to come.

Ok, wish you all the best.
Geir Inge

Hi Vidar,
I am glad you were able to find time to stay in the long form. Round three is your best yet. Watching it really made me wish I was there too! The 3D map at the beginning was a help to understand the trek. I liked the boots in the stream shot and the underwater shots. What kind of waterproof housing do you use? My favorite shot was picking the berry. Very nicely done. I am very much looking forward to watching your finished video.

Thanks Vidar. I used to have a EWA bag for my still camera. When I was in grad school a fellow student borrowed it for a trip to Hawaii. While he was there he decided he didnít want to come back. I never saw him or my EWA again. Good luck with the weather. Iím looking forward to your surprise.

Vidar,

I have watched your tasteful video two times. You have a fine compound story.
The underwater and the macro shots are great.

Hi Vidar:

I am personally so happy you are still in the challenge as last round you thought you might have to drop out because of your heavy schedule.

This is the best footage I have seen from you. The map animation in the beginning and the well composed scenery shots. You narrate the story quite well and all of it is so pleasing to the eye. The underwater shots show your skill as a film maker.

Nicely done Vidar! Can't wait to see how it will all come together as a final project.

Vidar, you capture the Vestland of Norway so well!
You have lots of amazing scenes there and you narrating emphasize this very well. The combination of underwater and over-land-shoots is stunning!

Good work, looking forward to your finished piece!

Vidar

All I can say is that I wished I had seen your piece before I went north to Glacier this time. We had similar weather and you produced some extraordinarily beautiful images... I learn from watching you and the others here.

I love the underwater and split underwater/above water images. Very very well done.

Your narration is very good as well.

One of the better pieces in round 3 to my mind. Thank you.

Vidar, just watched your entry. Beautiful scenary and vivid color. The close up of the plants were great, I never saw a red fly trap. What was the name of the little white water flower in the beginning? I enjoyed most of the underwater shots, however I thought that one shot of the trout on the line was a bit to long. Did you use an underwater housing of a glass box? Great job. Bob

Vidar,

spectacular scenery! I really liked the underwater footage. did you climb in that cold water yourself or just submerge the camera and see what was under there?? did you leave the drip on the camera case on purpose? Or were you in need of some lens tissues?

I really like the back zoom at the end!!! gives a feeling of vastness!!

Look forward to the final rendition!!!
