UWOL 40 - Postcard from Fidel - Paul Wood



Just a playful little idea, filmed using an iPhone and GoPro, and with Hector providing the Spanish voice of Fidel.

I toyed with the idea of other animals sending postcards, but obviously, with Fidel on my doorstep, the choice was a lot easier!!

Any Feedback welcome!

I guess it's feedback time!

This was quirky but did stay with the theme, the interior shots were novel but were a bit jarring compared to the garden shots. I'm not familiar with the iPhone but it seemed the image was a bit soft eh? The narration was needed and gave it good context rather than just text appearing.

Well done

Rob

Hi Paul,
This was a new and humoristic type of film from you. Cool!
Seems like Fidel has a good time with the new family.
I agree with Rob that the narration was essensial for the story.

I enjoyed watching your film.

Paul this was a different idea. The one thing I felt off was the colour balance of your gopro shots. Other than that it was pretty good.

What a delightful little video postcard, Paul! Made me laugh out loud, so I'm off to watch it again. You scored high with me in regard to theme use--great idea!

Paul,

I am kind of a bird guy so I loved the canary. I particularly liked the canary perspective.

the voice over was soft and gentle and fit the video.

much enjoyed

look forward to seeing more videos of yours in the future.
