Finn-Erik..

I just sat here for the last 20 minutes mesmerized.

I made a couple of mental notes.... and then stopped, because I just was enjoying taking in your entry so much.

Your images were crisp, balanced and nicely saturated without being overly so. Your storyline was interesting and the edits were practically "invisible". Your pans and zooms were pleasant to the eye and stopped smoothly. The music was used sparingly and when it was it was appropriate and fit the images nicely. The VO was excellent and the contrasting male/female voices worked well.

In short, this is a very professional production. 100%. WOW.

Time well spent my friend ! A winner!

Fin-Eric,


I very much enjoyed the nice easy pace of your video. I enjoyed the voice ove and I thought it was great having two different voices involved. I think your audio is great, something I am terribly weak in so I really respect what you have done here!!

I watch it again with a little more critical eye another day.

The story kept my attention.

Finn-Erik,

repost your vimeo version!!!


I watched it very closely this time. your compositions of shots is pretty astounding, great comps one after another. You have a gift there!!

first half of film I thought a lot of your shots were a tad to static. where you did apply motion withpull backs and zooms you did a great job on them. Being this is film I would have liked more movement.

the second half seemed much better in this regard!!!

favorite shot is of the sail boat through the hole in the rock!! but you have numerous shots that are first class.

In the second half you seemed to jump up an f stop or two F stops in brightness on some of the shots. Perhaps enriching the blu in the sky would have hleped that or perhaps cut the gamma slightly.

Bottom line, a terrific job. hope I can put together something as nice some day.

The narration is very good and kept my interest.

you should be able to get his on TV if you try!!

you have talent to burn!!


fantastic job.
