Nicely done....I really liked the moon and post shot. Did you get your inspiration from watching classic Disney cartoons?

Good job, Bradley. You crack me up. I can't tell you how many times I've watched your DVC short "Introspectacle" and laughed out loud. Keep 'em coming.

Brad's flick

Bradley,

I watched all 20 some odd clips last night and I wrote down my top four favorites. Yours was in the short list of my own. Very nice job!! Gives me inspiration to do a lot better, plan more and mostly be steadier!! It is an inspiration.

I really liked the drama of the video. Some of the scenes were fantastic, the images of the silhouette against the sky especially. Thanks for sharing.

Bradley,

What a awesome film! At first I was thinking it was going to be some kind of spooky film with the ominous dark clouds.

I loved your take on the theme. Although I do think you need to see a chriropractor. :)

You did a great job conducting the sky!

I'm happy you liked it. Disney: lol...I never really thought of it like that but you may have a point there. Hmmm...

Absolutely stunning and beautiful. You created a symphony of the skies and then boldly "cast" yourself as conductor.

I enjoyed it thoroughly (and as a photographer) especially for the color and composition of the images themselves as well as the way you blended it all together.

It was on this last time watching (3rd) that I finally noticed the "scratched film" look. I think what you achieved far transcends any perceived need for filmic "effects". I guess it's just me, but I think the time has come for us all to let go of the need to achieve that "film" look by such means.

What you did for us with your work here gave us a thing of beauty by whatever means employed.

I loved it!
