    Hi Martin

    Just wanted to say how much I loved your film, I’ve been working as an outdoor guide in this countryside for nearly 15 years and your footage really impressed me. Must have been a lot of fun to make and very rewarding to see the end result. I’ll keep an eye out for more of your work.

    Hope to see you in New Zealand sometime.

    All the best.
