    You S.O.B. This is wonderful. Towards the end, when you’re back in the chopper, it’s like you just jumped up with the camera in your hand and started flying on your own. It was wonderful.

  2. Victor says:

    Superb stuff as always with great music selection.
    Q : Is that mostly shot in 24mm?

  3. Hi Philip,

    Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how much i enjoyed your film…nice work, well scored.

    Hey Philip,
    I was wondering if you used any special equipment (other then a helicopter) to get your shots. Some of them were flawless with no reflections at all.
    Nice work.

    Not at all! All through the window, had lots of reflections. I did use smoothcam in Final Cut Pro to smooth out the jitters though!

    Thanks v much!

    the flickering of light from the helicopter wings gave it an older film look at times… very beautiful piece overall!

      thanks Chloe, nice to hear from you.

    Hi Philip,

    Really beautiful shots, lovely music and also nicely edited!
    I want your job (and your skills!) now you b**stard!!

    Question – what picture ratio is that and can you shoot like that on the EX1 or is it cropped after?
