Hi Jim:

There is always one film each round that brings tears to my eyes. This was moving and beautifully orchestrated. The artistry in the writing and the filming can't be beat. Powerful, reflective. It pushed all my buttons. Thank you.

Hmm, wow great work here, this one had the deepest emotional response I think. I'm sure you put a lot of work into it and it shows. I liked the soft filmic look and the camera motion helped smooth the entire piece.

The end was a little on the sad side, it does reflect the truth of our existence though.

Top notch entry, I cant wait to see what you do next round.

I love the whole idea concept and execution of this video.Only problem I have is that I could never come up with something so classy. Great stuff Jim.

Hi Jim.

A great film and great story Jim.
It was beautiful to watch and the magic look filter gave it that little extra.
You are a great storyteller and you show it well in your film.
Can't put a finger on one thing I didn't like.

Very professional put together :)

Wish you all the best and longing for your next film in uwol#9.

This video is in a class of its own and one that has added yet another dimension to this challenge with its technically skillful camera work, effects editing and script writing. It is nothing less than a work of art and I have to echo Meryem's statement - moving and poetic. Very special. I appreciate the depth and warmth and mellow tones that permeate this touching story - from the warm, friendly voice of the narrator, golden light filtering through the trees, the choice of trees themselves - gnarly and old in character - beautifully framed with rich colours and soft textures, complementary music and judiciously applied effects used to enhance the overall mood. Congrats to both of you on an excellent combined effort!
