Anne, it is AWESOME. Wow, this would so make me want to buy the book if I wasn't already a fan. lol

I think because the film was condensed, it made the words a little hard to read. And I think I'm a slow reader because in the beginning I had to rush to keep up, but only in the beginning.

Wow, really cool...major congrats on this!! It's like watching a movie trailer instead of for a book!

thanks, kelly!!
i had a problem keeping up with the print at the beginning too. not sure that can be stretched out or not. i'll have to ask. it's hard to read and look at the images at the same time. the print was all caps and easier to read, but i had her change it because it seemed to be shouting. the dvd version will be full-screen, so that won't be a problem when viewed that way.

Dang, I can't see it until I get home! Looking forward to it, though. =D

Anne, I love this version.

It was excellent. I didn't have too much trouble reading, but then again, I tend to watch movies with the subtitles on.

The images were haunting and the music superb. It really set a great tone for the novel. Can't wait to read it!

P.S. You inspired me to post mine.

Rob, i'm glad you liked it! i think it remained fairly true to the orginal, but gives the viewer a better idea of the story. the added text seems intrusive to me, but also necessary.

emeraldcite: thanks!! :)

Rob Gregory Browne said...

I like the text much better than the narration. Fits the mood.

Anne- This "revised" version is great. Three thumbs up! :)

anne frasier said...

:D

jason evans said...

Some great images in there Anne! And I could read the narrative fine. FOUR thumbs up! (Polydactylism is rampant in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania I'm afraid).

Superb, anne. Loved this version. Is there an Academy Award for this kind of video? Nope? Well, I nominate you for a Scary! Jer

Mary Louisa said...

That was VERY cool. I loved the music and the creepy hand hanging over the bathtub. Can't wait to READ IT!!

anne frasier said...

mutant critics. :D


jer, thanks!!

mary louisa -- the bathtub scene is my favorite. i love that!!

my daughter made the video, and the music was done by both my kids. pretty nice having that kind of talent in the family. :)

emeraldcite said...

A very talented family indeed!
