    sorry, I feel stupid. I admit I'm a bit of a dumbass.

    Anyway...........about your film? Any thoughts on what I actually said pertaining to your film?

    You're totally right about mostly everything you said. You did screw up regarding the score. The voice over sucks, I know, strange you never mentioned the funny accent also, I'm waiting for the voiceover dubbing... And it is a ripoff, that's what the whole thing was made for. I'm sorry you didn't like it.

    I like it. It's in my top 5 of the fest. I'm hard on it because I liked so many other aspects. I heard Dahopa say something I really liked about Eighteen Seconds. It went something like "I have a phonebook sized list of praises, and a laundry list of complaints. I don't have time to get into the phonebook content so I'll just discuss the smaller complaints"

    I don't think I screwed up on the score critique. I guess I was benchmarking it by Vangelis' better mixed works. There's a lot of his work I don't like on a technical level. I'm sort of an audiophile. Sorry Vangelis, you still rock.

    New Age = not very evocative or textural, flat, like a set that's not lit that well.

    space music = evocative, deep textural depth, Blade Runner for example

    This is one area where I'm not a dumbass. I gotta have some saving grace.

    Hi Nicolas,

    I loved the style of this too. Ripping off or not, you can only do this if you have an eye for cinema, which you clearly do.

    I think you've been very gracious in all the criticism too. As it's clearly a homage I won't give this an in-depth review as it's all been said here; but I'd like to see more of your work.

    the music has a cold quality because that was what Vangelis was going for on this one ..from " Antarctica " movie ( the one the recent "8 below" movie copied )..

    Vangelis is probably the musician most responsible for making electronic music sound less cold and warm , if it does sound that way ..its his choice as he mixes all his work himself.

    and he's about as far removed from bland new age music as is possible.

    i thought the music went well in this film , but then his music seems to go well with most visuals.

    i liked the film .. one of the few i managed to watch all way through.
