Thanks for your comments!

Mick, I was thinking of the same after I had submitted the film. Agree fully with you. But this is the way of learning

Per, thanks for the picture of your ingenious invention. I can see how the birds would be fooled. I watched your video again and have one last comment. There were a couple of shots (1:55 and 2:26) of the birds feeding and I was waiting for a rack focus. I just thought that would be a great place for one. Bob

Hei Per Johan,

Welcome back to UWOL!

You always get great audio quality in your films, and this one delivered as well! Very nice idea with hiding the mics in those tubes. Music and VO fits well.

Mick had a great suggestion in post #15 how to build the drama introduced by the hawk, but I know it can be very difficult to get the needed shots.
Loved the close ups of the birds and squirrel, especially the shot at 0:32.
Fading into the white winter, was a nice ending of your film.

All in all, a very strong film.
Well done!

Hi Per Johan,


Opening Sequence with the squrrel is so fantastic sets the tone perfectly for the video
Next i liked was the transition from the tit and out of focus woodpecker to the sparrow hawk, fantastically done,The shots with changing focal length makes it more interesting to the eye
The tussel between the Yellowhammers is also nice .
You ended where you started again at the Squirrel which is a great take
Wonderful video

Many thanks for your comments to my entry
Bob, yes I should have been doing some rack focus, agree on this. But there is not easy as the birds constantly move in the frame all the time. Remember that sequences shown are slowed down by 50% from the original recording. Things happen very fast with such small birds
But I will be thinking about trying this out later on

Great film Per, and nice to have you back on board
I really liked the gentle way you pulled the viewer into the scene - I'm guessing shot on a slider. The squirrel and bird shots were great, I think preparation makes all the difference here. The end fade transition worked really well also. The music just blended in well, and the sounds were great.

I think Mick's suggestion was good. I like to see some specific narrative in the films, and I think this would help build more of a story into the shots themselves. I had wondered about the VO, it sounded a little artificial but I wasn't sure initially if it was. There's some good suggestions for options there already.

Thanks for joining in this round and posting, it was a very enjoyable film.
