Cheers guys...As I've said this piece was by far the biggest challenge so far but I've also learnt the most by doing it!

Tom: Yeah actually my girlfriend asked whether I'd overlayed the 'gull glides'....no they were there, although the sounds are added after !

Bruce: I wanted the weather wild but it was certainly the hardest 'character' to put to tape.

Per : Getting the shots to look consistant was a real problem as I lost some part of every sequence to the wind....pans were just out of the question! I will check out that cut :)

Mat...Good film man.

Love the music, the work you put into getting us intimate with the (I am guessing harbor seals). My favorite shot was where we see the waves crashing and then the close up of the dead crab getting washed away. Those are amazing animals...I imagingne that there were a few sharks patroling nearby such a crowded beach of tasty morsels! :)

Thanks for the film...can you put a tutorial of the best way to compress a film and put it onlie? (like the for dummies version)...I need help with that.

I really liked the music...did you use a loop program like Acid to make it?

good work,

Mat, this was a beautiful film with a remote and wild feel to it. Great visuals, audio sharp and clear with music that enhanced the mood.

Instead of repeating all the neat things others have said, I'll add my own high complement by asking your permission to screen this one for our local photography club. They sure enjoyed the last one.

Oh yeah, that last shot of the seal giving you the "Who the heck are you?" look. Glad you included that.

Well in a way I'm glad that I'm not the only one who looses a lot of footage due to winds. Funny how it seems to happen in the shot you really need. I have to say considering the conditions you did very well to get what footage you got. It was a pleasure to watch well done.
