Beautiful vignette. The footage is gorgeous and the audio makes me feel like I’m right there on the boat. I love how simple this piece is. It’s a noteworthy meditation about a way of life that is dying. // This is a really nice piece! The visuals were interesting and well framed and I enjoyed the story. The audio mix is a bit muddled. I sometimes struggled to understand what he was saying over the ambient sounds in the B-Roll and there were times where I thought subtitles might be appropriate.
