UWOL #4 'Drips' By Yvette Kane

Hi All, my first entry in UWOL completed.. woo hoo, been a long time since i picked up the camera and shot anything... so was a bit rusty.. hope you all enjoyed the re-union of two 'drips'

Love your feedback.

PS am still getting through all the entries so will post some observations once complete.

Yvette.

Hi Yvette - I have to agree with Chris and echo his comments - it was really cool, and i think it would work well as an education to kids too ;-)

Defiantely a unique entry - well done!

Hi Yvette.
I wonder - have you met Ruth?
Those voices where amusing :)
Loved the way you approach the topic and the story.
My two daughters loved it very much and so did I.
Wish you good luck in uwol.

Yvette!

How simply fun! How creative. It was so cute and different! Boy, I would sure rather be drip #2 than drip #1. Nice job!

Welcome to the uwol family!

Yvette,
What a pleasant surprise. After watching your entry I just sat and smiled.
Your ending was especially charming. Keep it up.

Hi Yvette,
My family and I really enjoyed your movie - what a wonderful approach to the theme! Very funny in places and a joy to watch.
I think you may have stummbled onto something (with the chipmunks voice) here, as our boys actually put there play station controllers down to come over and sit next to me to watch your entry.
Well done Yvette...

What a sweet little film you have created. This would be awesome as an introductory science lesson for very young children. I love the characters and the whole cyclic story.

A few comments; perhaps a few less moving camera shots, more tripod shots and some interesting animation, and you have a piece that could be used in classrooms throughout the world to tell the tale of water on the planet.

Oh yeah, thank you for being the only one to include surfers in your film. I love surfing (even though I am an awful surfer)...:)

Jeff

Yvette,

What a fun film. Sure reminded me of a Ruth Happel film. :)

I always look forward to her films and now I will look forward to yours as well.

A little shaky on some of the waterfall shots etc. But, maybe that's what you were aiming for with the camera acting as the drip bouncing around in the water.

A few of the water shots were blown out but with whitewater, you have to compromise somewhere.

This film was allot of fun!!

Hi,

As Geir pointed out, I usually also have voices of generally voiceless (bushes, a dog, etc.) so since I didn't do that this time, glad there was someone else who did :) Very fun to watch- creative way to get across your message.

Hi Yvette, welcome to the UWOL Family.
Your film was one of the most fun and entertaining films to watch.
Nice voice overs you have.

Hope you stay with us in the future challenges.
We need more of the fun stuff, and you really delivered that.
Thank you for sharing.

A very unique concept, very well presented and with just the right touch of humor. I enjoyed the variety of visuals you presented, Each of your shots had a special feel to it.

A fun film to watch.
