Hi James:

Nice job. Like Ruth said, it sort of sucks you in and you feel like you are there. I'm also impressed that you produced your own music. You seem like you are all the way around talented!

I am amazed at what you did to film all this, and I shudder to think about that aerial shot of your car. That's what I call giving it all you've got for a good film product.

James, I think you have to be a member for some time before you are allowed to upload attachements, you can email Chris Hurd and ask him?

Many have commented your film, I'll second what have been said. Looks like you had a good time there James. The chimney and the moon was a nice ending shoot.

Thanks again one and all. Gier, Tronde, Catherine and Per I appreciate the encouraging words and comments.

Catherine - thank you especially for the comments regarding the music. It was probably much easier than the video as that is where my previous 20 years of experience lies.

Per - I'll let the secret out regarding the last shot....it's a composite. The chimney was actually filmed during an uniformly overcast day which I then used Magic Bullet movie looks to apply a nighttime filter to. The moon is a resized clip of video that I composited with the chimney and chroma keyed out black sky. Originally I wanted to shoot this as a real shot but found that the moon was not very co-operative in it's placement. I contemplated making the moon huge to fill much more of the sky but I thought to go for a realistic look then a more natural size was in order. Hope that doesn't change your opinion of the shot :)

As for posting my storyboard I will email Chris and see if I can have permission to do so.

Thanks again to everyone.

I really liked your video. It takes a lot of time setting up the camera like that. Some really interesting shots too. Well done.

Hi James,

Loved this film, the way you mixed the scenery with the recreation was stunning. My favourite shot was the red berries in the tree, with you skiing in the background.
