i really liked this, im amazed at how it turned out.. with the camera you used.. thats proof that you dont need a $2500+ camera to make something look great. how did you get such a great look on ur footage? (what did you use)
great work close to 5/5

Very beautiful. Blindness is also one of my worst fears. Seeing is very important to me because I like to make things that are visual, and see things visually. Films are my favorite media, and being active and seeing things is important. This applied to me 100%. I am a huge fan of your stuff. 5/5 I don't think this could have been done much better. You've got a bright future ahead of you. </pun>

Good film. The only thing that bothered, and still bothers me, is how the audio doesnt sync with the music in a few cases where it easily could. Just thought that might add it a little more emotion to such an already "emo" film. Very b E A U tiful bit of work with impressive visuals and camera work. Congrats on the contest win, and best of luck with future projects.

Well, I guess the most important thing is the light...
Yes, lighting something right is waaay more important than plastering footage with grading effects. You don't need anything fancy to get a semi-decent look, just patience.
The color work was done in Premiere and photoshop CS. I adjusted the normal stuff such as levels (monochromatic contrast), brightness/contrast, color balance and selective color.

I've watched this a few times now, and I really like it!
To be honest, this is very nearly perfect - it's superbly thought through and well constructed, with obvious personal significance as well as emotional impact upon the audience. I expecially liked the use of the synch/piece to camera at the start.
The only thing that let this down, for me at least, was that some of the editing is a bit off in places - for example, the length of the thrid clip of timelapse sky before the guy reaches the clifftop is dramatically shorter than the others, and it just broke the flow for me.
However, it's clear that you're a tallented filmaker (and photographer), and you don't need any advice from me to go far!

I agree with Arktic, this was excellent! You got the mood perfectly, and the music added to the viewing experience. I also like your choice of doing it MOS. The editing was tight in some spots and a bit off in others. Despite that, it rates a 5 in my book. Keep up the excellent work!

Great! One of the best movies here on Fxhome!!! 5/5!
I really love your work, and this, in my opinion, is probably your best so far. This is one of those films you can have multiple interpretations of. I definately agree with you on the fact that being blinded is probably one of my worst fears. That is, my worst fear aside from being buried alive. How scary would it be to wake up to find yourself buried in a metal box and about to die just because some idiot thought you were dead? Of course that would never happen, but I shudder every time I think about it *Landon shudders*.
But quite honestly, you're right. I don't know what I would pursue if I wen't blind. My ambitions are pretty much cinematography, CG Art (or even drawing for that matter), and writing. I also make various video games as a hobby. Man, even if I were to be an astrophysicist its kind of hard to do when you can't see anything isn't it? I couldn't read or play Super Smash Bros. either *sigh*.
Thanks a lot for making this film. It really did make me think how important light is to me as well, however cheesy that sentance may read.
Btw, this movie is at #2 on my Top Ten Films list,

I've said most if what I'll write already in chat, when I had the pleasure of looking at some of this before.
It's really great work with great attention to detail and... heh... light.
You without a doubt have some real talent and this is a great showcase. Well thoughtout piece, well shot, well composited and with a personal message.
Great film! Keep em coming.

i dont like how the film so quickly fades in and out from one scene to another, that was really annoying. i like the images, the sky and cliff and snow, all very beautiful locations. sure. but again, i especially dont like how u fade in and out so quickly so that you cant really get a change to appreciate the beauty of the shot. maybe instead of that silly digitally edited light, u could have gotten a shot of the sunrise/set. if ur theme is light and nature, why try to fuse it with people and society? what in the world was the point of the end w/ ppl running out of some store.

Excellent work, man! I liked your comment about how light is a gift, and how your movie illustrated that point. The look of this is very professional. I'm amazed that you used a $350 video camera to shoot this. I'm inspired!

That was an absolutely astonishing piece. It was simple and yet had such a complexity. Your style seduces the eyes. The score was brilliantly merged with the scenes. The effects were spectacular.
Over-all this was a stunning, moving short film. Kudos.

Really enjoyed this film, dude, how did you make the sky look so good? (the part when you are stood ontop of the cliff, like in the picture). Brilliant film. Very inspirational.
