I've seen this video made much better before. A couple of times.

Also didn't understand what "Find Yours" was supposed to mean?

It did feel a bit cobbled together too...

I liked it. Nice little montage with a logical conclusion. Reminded me of some cool commercials I've seen.

There are some themes and forms that (just like in pop songs) will never go away. Girl, boy, distance, finding each other. Just like real life. So, being a romantic, I'm predisposed to be sympathetic. But the music didn't help me. Maybe I'm just too old and non accepting of it. I had Bob Dylan's If You See Her Say Hello in my player so I ran that instead. I started the film from just before the first Him Her title with the jet planes..

Bill or Freya, If you try this you may need to pick your own music.

It does feel a bit creatively inferred by some commercials I may have seen, which is a nice way of saying that it may feel a bit unoriginal or derivative. But if the final thing is good enough I don't think that matters. The pop song analogy again.

Cheers,
Gregg
