Adventure Man

This was pretty fun to make since I got the kids involved, but I could only fit in half the scenes from the script. Maybe we'll do a part II someday. It's a little off the wall.
I tried to make a short comedy and analogy on life.
I'm sure everyone has days like these. You wake up early planning to conquer the world, and then:

Bill,
This was funny! I had a good laugh of all your adventures.
The view from the mountain must be spectacular.
Favorite sequence was the jump off of the cliff and the underwater shots.

Well done!

Bill,

I think your nailed down the theme, "A Day in the Life of" perfectly!!! I watched it a couple times and chuckled both times. Humor is so hard to do!!!

It was all a pleasure, but I really liked the falling of the cliff. Having been a climber in the past the rule (never use someones else's bolt or piton still rules) I really chuckled at that!!


The end was perfect!!

Thanks for taking the time and sharing.

Hi Bill.
At last some humor in uwol and what a great piece you have made.
It sertanly gave me a laugh wathcing it, so well done.
And that "auch" of yours after all of your escapades is amusing.
I'm not sure what is my favorite scene, but at the end when the tears comes - I understand you fully :)
Great piece!

All the best
Geir Inge

Bill, I really loved this, laughed through out the entire video.
It reminds me of my weekends.

That tear at the end is just like mine at the end of every day, when dad has to give two out of three kids a "piggyback" ride to bed.

Thanks for the humour, needed it today.

Bill,
it is a joy to watch your video.
The scenes are well planned and edited.
The music choice is good and the story fits well to the short format.
I thing the jumping with the underwater scene is your best dramatized point.
Thanks for bringing in humor and fantasy to the competition.

Thanks guys for watching, and the comments, really happy to get some laughs going.
I've watched the other films a couple of times with the kids and really appreciate the effort and talent.
