Kevin Railsback! Calling for your feedback thread!

Come on man! This entry was awesome!!!

Okay, if I made one for mine, I think you could make one for yours! My camera never moved. Yours was awesome!

Do you have any idea how much I would have given to get one of those shots??? It was so beautiful! You told the story so nicely!

So come one, make a feedback thread! I think other people would like to comment on your video as well! Am I right?!?

:-)

Nah, it was just a bunch of eye candy thrown together in an hour. There's no story.

The first five shots I never even left my yard. :)

Come on out to Iowa sometime, I'll take ya shooting around the area.

hahaha, we like eye candy! Sure there is.. the clouds form, it rains, runs into streams, then rivers, then the big final - the ocean. Then it forms into clouds again. :) I would say that is a story...

Hah, thats nice!

Sounds cool! Maybe I'll do that when I become a confident driver.. Ha, wait, I still have to get my license and car... That might take a little bit... haha. Would love to do it though!

That was amazing, high up on the list! One question, where did you shoot the sea shots, not Iowa right?

Don't drive man, FLY! At my age it takes me two days to drive to Yellowstone anymore.
I can leave Iowa in the morning and be shooting in Yellowstone before the sun sets. :)

Maybe I'll be in your neck of the woods some day. Have to go to California Sunday then off to Yellowstone again in September.

Are you far from Seattle? I know Barry Green has talked about doing a Bootcamp up there. Maybe we can twist his arm to bring me along for a field day of shooting! :)

Marco,
You must have a pretty short list for it to be high up on it. :)

Anyway, the theme was announced while I was in Laguna Beach. You don't think we have scenes like that in Iowa? :)

Ha, I guess at that distance, it probably is cheaper to fly.. I just like being on the rode... :)

That would be cool.. Let me know if you do, maybe we could hook up.

I am not to far. I lived there a few years back.. All I have to do is head straight up the I5. Or take the train. A friend of mine did that last week.. Worked out nice...
I'll have to find out more about this.. Sounds interesting. :D

Kevin, that is definitely eye candy.

But it worked for me. Talked to me. From the intro with clouds and thunder, the rain falling and the ladybug on the blade of green. The rivers flowing, ever changing look but all done with POWERFUL colors. The flow finally touching sand and climaxed with West coast and surf. Vibrant and ever stronger.

I know sometimes it doesn't do what we want it to, we feel as we master a craft that we ought to be able to manipulate it at will, but sometimes that just doesn't work for us in our mind.

What we want so much to follow our design leaves us feeling like we lacked something. I've done portraits that left me feeling like that and offered no charge resittings only to have my customers turn that down because they really liked what I turned up with.

Eye candy it may be. But what eye candy!

Kevin, the editing is super, the whole thing flows like the water, the music is a perfect complement.

You wanna talk about something "thrown together? Mine was thrown together and looks it to me. I'm gonna watch yours several more times over quite a period.

I liked it a lot!

Bruce,

I learned long ago that I don't master this craft. :)

Maybe it's because I really don;t feel like I earned this one.

I mean I was at Laguna, Huntington and Newport beaches when the theme was announced. The first 5 shots were in my back yard and the rest was at good old Indian Creek where I shoot most of my water stuff.

Sure it's nice that it seemed to fall into place but I really didn;t do anything on this one and maybe that's what's buggin me.

Glad you liked it anyway.

Hi guys:

It looks to me that this is turning into Kevin's feedback thread. Nice job Gabe. So Kevin, you can't escape it... we are all enjoying your film! And as for the first 5 shots done in your backyard.... I think Rob Evans did that last time and one the contest!

Definatley eye candy for my visual "sweet tooth" ;-)

It's pretty much a nicely woven succession of perfect shots, picked up beautifully to the music. I love rocky shores like that and you got the timing just right for the light, it really brought out the perspective. And the ending shot of the water sinking into the sand, was amazing.

Nice work. One of my faves ;-)

Kevin,

If you can throw this together in two hours I think I better toss in the towel and try something else!!

Terrific job inspite of the time thing!!!

It's funny, if he hadn't done it - I was about to make a thread for you too.

I just wanted to say that I really liked your video. The brightness and crispness just blew me away. I see what you are saying about the lack of story, it did seem to just kinda end, but what was there looked great and I thought the story was moving along pretty well.

I guess it was more one of those "editing" jobs versus a film that was planned and shot. Creating a film to match a theme with just editing some footage can be a challenge for sure.
