Dale,
You have made the most enjoyable film in this round, I think. As a guitar-player I really love this. Your animals like the music as much as I do. It is no fight between cat and bird.

Good afternoon to you Dale.
Although you originally intended to show us something else in this round, I love this video. It shows (at least I feel it this way when I watch it) a strong bond between man and bird. Yes, and the cat too :) Hope you're getting better and looking forward to see your final ULF video.

Regards
Geir Inge

As I said previously Dale, get this right and I think this is a saleable piece. You have a big story and with the recent sad events I can see this thing in a broadcastdocumentary more than ever. Make sure you get your sound clean, this could cause you a problem further down the line if it goes further.

This stage has a lovely relaxed warmth to it...and was it me or was that bird dancing to your guitar playing! - I think this section juxtaposed against the death of the falcon would make very emotivedocumentary.

Keep at it fella....very, very promising!

Hi Dale

Like everyone else I thoroughly enjoyed this piece. You obviously have a very good rapport with animals - I definitely couldn't have sat as calmly as you did with a couple of falcon talons in my hand like that - eina (S.A. for ouch) that must have been sore!

Certainly a good strong introductory sequence to your film that will warm the audience and set them up for some interesting insights into Falconry. Looking forward to viewing this film. Really well done Dale.

Good Afternoon,


Well, with the dead line over I thought I would place the two links to my video on Vimeo. I broke the 40 minute video down into two parts as it was larger than the 500 mgb limit for downloads.

Considering I could not get the fall footage I had originally planned upon we had to use footage I shot last January which was supposed to be in the second or third part of the series.

With the challenge over, I will carry on with the project injecting early season footage shot in prior years and it looks like the finished series will likly be two parts rather than the original three. That, of course, will depend on the shoots I can orchestrate in the following three months.

Anyway, for those that take the time to download this nicer version I hope you enjoy it and have some constructive criticism that will be helpful as I carry this out to completion.

Dale.... what a fascinating story. I've finished part 1. You have some wonderful footage there. The music competed with your narration a bit, but the story was able to be understood. You are a natural on camera!

Bravo. Well done.

Chris S.

ps. Later, after I view it a second time, I will PM you with constructive observations on places that stand out in my eye, ear or mind either positively or negatively, but on a first viewing, I have nothing but compliments at this time!

we are still sorting out uploads...please don't link to your final film until we are sure that we have all the entries - you will know this when they are all linked to the UWOL website, then you can have at it.

sorry, folks, but we have made this request repeatedly...it isn't fair to start the contest until we have this sorted out.

Here are the nicer versions of my video:



Hunting the Hard Way part 1




Hunting the Hard way part 2



This video was to be three parts, and ultimately it will be. However I could not get the fall footage so the 16 minutes of footage that would have let me break it down as the original plan will be taken from footage shot in prior years, which of course we can't do in the challenge.

For those that take the time to watch this version I look forward to you constructive criticisms of a useful nature!!! you all have been so helpful for the last year!!

Dale, there may be some things that weren't technically perfected, but your heart for these magnificent birds really came through...there's something about your way with them that really gets to the heart of the transcendant bond between humans and animals...
