As usual, the video judges have made lots of comments on each of the entrants in the Flickr video contest pool so there is a lot to be learned by going through the comments.
Here are Charlie’s comments:
I’m honored to have been selected.
As I was conceptualizing this video, I asked the owners to write down their top 10 favorite things about the property. It turned out that the majority of the top 10 did not have anything to do with the actual home. Many were of the experiences they have while living in such a setting. So those experiences were what I needed to capture in the video. The home matters, but you’ll see that a large part of this video is about the lifestyle of living there. I shot the interview first and that really dictated how I shot and edited the video. She told the story, I just put in the visuals.
