Hi everyone smile
A group of friends and I did a short film about Greece for the 48 hour Greek American Film Festival. Yes, we created the film in 48 hours - I had to compose and perform/record the music in 24 hours to make deadlines lol not much slept thank God for coffee lol Anyhow, we're 2nd place for the people's choice award (we also made Cannes film festival as well)- so if you like - we were wondering if you mind clicking like on youtube (that's how you vote) and sharing it with your contacts asking them to do the same. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQoXiNpmN8k&feature=share. I would love to hear your feedback as well thank you soo much [:)] Natalia

Well, I watched it all the way through so I would say it kept my attention. I can think of a few different reasons why it kept my attention. I think the filming and the characters were interesting. If you're posting here for an opinion on the music I would say it was ok.

Φυσίκα και θα ψηφίσω! Αλλίμονο! Και θα βάλω και φίλους να ψηφίσουν! ^_^

hahaha! Cool one! And so very very real! And I just saw that the 'N' stands for Natalia!

Natalia: Beautiful music! Very calming and quite appropriate for such a film! Well done! May it go well!

EDIT2: And spread to facebook as well! Let's see how people feel.

Now... to offer a different perspective: Isn't it a bit unfair to base a competition to a popularity contest, where people come in a forum, offer 2 posts and get a few 'likes'? I'd say that I'd love for Natalia to join us... Especially since not only she plays the piano, but she also composes! ^_^ But we'll see if this will come to pass!

Not sure if the message was anything more than "You can press people's buttons by waving a flag"! Nicely made though. Professional-quality camera work. The music was unobtrusive, probably all it needed to be.
