For the Birds
Winged Migration
Review by Ross Anthony

Beautiful film, sweetly filmed in flight in formation with the birds, as if we're one of the flock. Gentle, fancy feathered beasts backed by sprawling waters, cliffs, rain and snow -- our lovely Earth.

Nearly zero narration, just light airy visuals and an "Enya"-like sound track.

Only suggestion: better English title -- here are few of my ideas:

For the Birds
Duck Duck Goose.
A Bird's Eye View
Fight & Flight
Flock U.

Also, the poster belies the beauty of the production -- it's much more beautiful and without the effects.
