thanks

I want to thank all the people that viewed my friends video "Hello Goodbye". I'm sorry that it really bothered some of you so much that you felt the need to report it to the Mods. The only reason that I posted it here was to give the creator some feedback on his work.

Anyone that wants to view it can PM me for a link to his Youtube channel.

Thanks again,

BSY

The original thread was closed before I even stumbled over it, so I'll give you my critique here.

Technical production was well done. Editing was better than a lot of movies I've seen. Credits WERE overdone, as mentioned.

Content, and subject matter, were nihilistic and poor.

Overall, it didn't 'grab' me like the scene in Full Metal Jacket. But at least Kanye didn't jump out and say Beyonce's vid was better. (Might have gotten more positive reactions had K been the central player....lol)

I haven't watched the video, but I must say I was especially distressed when I saw the title, and then the first couple threads in the post. Your presentation guaranteed the thread's being reported and closed, IMO.

I wasn't really worried about the thread being locked. I was a little surprised that even after being warned what it was about, that some people would be little *****es like that.

Excuse me, but have you EVER known anyone personally who has committed suicide? Have you ever seen the results personally? If the answer is no, then you have no right to call other people names. I can see from your pics that you are an adult. Act like one.

"He's not going to see us grow up" , that's what my neice said. "My Son, my son" , that's what his father said after finding him sitting in a chair in the woods.

"Don't touch his hair" , that's what the funeral director said.

yes I have known a couple of people that have taken their own life.

the video that I posted a link to, was made for my friend's animation class. He got an A for his work.

No one was forced to view the video, and those that did view it were clearly warned what the video was about(and that it was very graphic). Honestly, I've seen more disturbing footage on primetime television show like CSI.

I understand why you didn't watch the video, and was very respectful of your reason why you would not.

Thank you for possessing basic reading comprehension skills(it's clear that not everyone on BF has them).

I viewed it. Not that great. The technical aspects of the intra-oral contact is poor at best.

You really need to learn to accept criticism as a positive and inspiring force.

Put your defensive attitude away and listen to people.

Just watched it. Also tried watching the second video linked to here (the cartoon), but had to stop it because it was so bad.

I noticed that he went to the Art Institute. That explains quite a bit.
