I've got something to submit too. Probably tomorrow. I had a data loss and had to rebuild some kontakt instruments from scratch.

Thanks Pezz - your description is strange, but true : )

Originally I was going to make just one video; as we had only a few contributers I decided to make a video for everyone in the group as part of the editing process leading to the 'winning' video...I like all the tracks too which made the process enjoyable.

Most of the footage was taken during 3 shoots although I didn't have specific music in mind when framing the shots. Although similar scenes appear in different videos, these are usually alternate takes. I tried to guide the footage in the way the river guides water.

Please stop by later to see the remaining videos.
