Not sure if Coca Cola is mad at you, or loves you for this one.... Must have been lots of fun doing voice overs with the footage you had.... Enjoyable to watch. I try to watch these films with my wife, because she is less involved in technical aspects, and she always likes dog stories !!

Chris,

I hope Coke views it as free advertising! At least no harm was done, thanks to brave Fluffy.

The audio was fun, trying to match my dog's moods with different phrases. As in the last video for UWOL, I find myself drawn to voicing the natural world- first bushes and now a dog. I guess I'm slowly working my way up to more complex dialogue....

Hi Ruth:

Great play on theme. I think you and I are of a kindred spirit when it comes to incorporating our beloved pets and family into the fun!

And also thanks for the message, all delivered in a fun, creative way.

A few times I had difficulty deciphering the narration, but all in all a great piece.

As your uwol1 video, I really like this one too.
How you make the animals and trees to "talk" is impressive.
I like how you include a message in your video.

Hi Cat,

When I watched your video, it seemed we were both in the same spirit on this challenge. I like to have some humor, but also a serious message- not always easy to combine the two. I'm coming from an audio background where I had a lot more dynamic range to work with, not generally including narration, so that is something I need to figure out- always something to learn.

Glad you enjoyed it.

Trond,

I guess there is a theme to my videos here on UWOL so far. Really, my dog rarely talks to me :)

Glad you enjoyed it, I like to have a message, but also have fun.

Per- The secret to my dog "hitting his mark" was a treat. I put one just past the camera, so he trotted by ignoring me. It took a few takes, but finally the motivation of food won out.

Gordon- That's who I'm leaving out of the videos- my cat! But I think she would take over the project- either that or nap through production.
