Neat! Taking awhile to download but so far...I love the opening credits!
I went to a hookah bar last weekend with some friends. Had a really good time. I'd never smoked anything before it and I liked it.
Okay back to the video now that it's almost done downloading... I liked your editing and structure. I think your interviewees were a little dry and the music made it seem a little cheesey at times... I'd suggest bringing that down when they are speaking just so it doesnt' feel like an SNL skit or something.
Overall though, I liked it and having just tried hookah the other day, this got my attention. Cool stuff man :thumbup:

I liked the style - the shots of the smoke were really cool. What was the lighting setup? Did you light the clouds of smoke from behind, or above? I liked the lighting of the interviews as well. Moody.

Well i have tons of family in Israel, that's were i was first introduced...There's a lot to know about making it taste and work right and i was taught by my Israeli friends. The word "Hookah" might be the american-ized word. We call it a Nargila. You should've interviewed me man! haha. As far as technical stuff goes...Like the opening sequence, not sure about the MB or CC you put on there. Makes it more of a dreamlike/narrative, less of a documentary, but also could work, because of the content. Good job!
