As mentioned when inside you should have had some people in the shots. Other than that I think it was pretty good. It looks fairly open in your area

Yes, a very good point. The indoors shots were missing the people.
I'll remember that.

It's kinda open in the area where I made the video. But only a couple of km from there, the nature changes a lot, to high mountains and deep valleys.
You might see some of it in the background in a few of the shots in my video.

I want to hear it.....

First let me say that this is a great video! I love the activity and you put it together well. Others have mentioned the end not fitting and what not so I wont go there.

I would like to point out though....and its purely a matter of personal taste....in a film such as this where you are inviting us into your hometown or home....I think that the effect would be greatly enhanced by using your native language for the VO and subtitling it to english. I think it would draw the view into your world that much more.

Don't get me wrong....1: Your english is good and that is not what prompts this. Your english is better than some of my neighbors that I have lived next to for many years. 2. for a dramatic piece where there is a lot of dialog then the subtitles would be a distraction. I just really enjoy hearing other languages and think that it would add an additional 'hook' to draw the view into YOUR world. 3. I'm not singling you out....this applys to everyone. I just happend to think about it while watching your video.

Thanks for the walk (ski) into your world.

Randy

Randy, thank you for the kind words. Glad you like the video.

I'll keep in mind the idea of native language for the VO.
Didn't think about that idea when I made this video. I felt it natural to do it in English since it is an international competition.
When I think about it now, maybe I could have had someone speaking the native language in the background and the VO in English as it is? Just another option...
Thank you for the idea! It is always nice to get inputs about how to improve my videos.
