The snow looked a little fast. But I don't know for sure. I haven't seen snow in 7 years.

Don't know if this is too much to ask but is their any chance that you could provide some tutorials on how you achieved some of the effects. I may be wrong but it looked like you use fractal noise for the some of the flames, i would be interested on how you created them.
Thanks

Feel free to use any of the footage or effects you need. You don't have to credit me at all, but if you want to, you can credit
