Gabriel:

Man oh man what a move forward from challenge number one. I went and looked at the comments you received on your first entry and....you listened well and this film showes that very clearly.

A little tighter on the edits next time.... and your on your way to the winners circle.

Thanks Brian. I was really trying to get everything I learned from the last challenge and add it to this one. However, most of the more "creative" shots, did not make the cut. So, maybe next time I will get better at it.

And did I already say that I only used 13 minutes of tape? haha, that may have been part of the problem, but all-well.

Next time I will use more of the tape, better angled shots, tighter editing, better compression, and maybe a little bit more of the spices! ;)

Thanks for the advice everyone! I really enjoy this challenge, and I hope all of you do as-well.

I think this was a great video Gabriel.
Where you jump to the trees and balance over, was nice done.
I also liked the guitar playing music and your VO.
This video just have to reach up high in Uwol#2.

Gabriel, well done!!!

The only thing I would like to see changed is the text at the end.
As Per Johan said, some of the text went away too fast.
(maybe because English isn't my first language)

As many have mentioned already, I am looking forward to see what you come up with in the next challenges.

Thanks Geir, and Trond!

The text really does need to be changed. But in order for that to happen, I need a better editing program due to the one I was using max out then. So yes, that is a problem, and I look forward to not having it again. :)

Thank you Geir, I had alot more of that footage, but I could not stand seeing myself in front of camera anymore! I would normally do that dally, but I have not in a week since I shot that...

Thanks again for your commits and suggestions, I too, look forward to the next challenge. And moving up as a videographer.

Is it possible with your NLE to use the same text more than once? If so, you could just add the text once more, and shorten the 2nd part to make the text last a little longer.
Anyway, this was just a detail. Your video is at least part of the top half of the uwol2.

That is a really good idea Trond! Thank you for that idea! I will be sure to do that in the re-edit of this film.

Thanks, that is a really nice complement to hear. :D

Hi Gabriel:

Congratulations on a great piece of work. You are good with the camera, and made the film interesting the entire way through. I share your appreciation for our very precious parks and your conclusions in the end.

Nice job!

P.S. Still problems seeing Extreme What? I appreciate your kind enthusiasm to want to view it despite problems and get back to me on that. All the best!

Hi Gabriel,

Good to see that you managed to complete your film. I enjoyed the film but the spelling spoiled it a bit.

Thanks Grant, I am glad I could get it in too!

I am not taking offense, I would just like to know what it was about the spelling that you did not like? So I can make it better, I would really like it if someone would tell me... I never found a grammar issue in the actual editing. So is it just a problem with seeing the text? Or did I just flunk spelling!? lol.

I wanted to do this really cool scene where I could say the the first part of the text, but then I ran out of time and the only option I had left was text, so I took it. Mistake maybe?

let me know.
~Gabriel

I would only point this out because Gabriel asked....

The word is "Entry" and you spelled it "Entery" at 2:53 into the video.

Sorry, my mistake. Just the one spelling mistake. I checked again, it was my eyesight not your spelling, oops.

Ok, thanks guys! haha, now I see. Bad typo on my behalf, sorry about that!

I'll be sure to fix that! I very much appreciate your help on pointing this out.

Thanks again for all the comments/suggestions!

Gabriel,

Nice work. Lightyears ahead of some of you earlier work. You obviously thought this project thru and planned your shots and storyline. IMO you are on the right track.

Regards,
