A PATRICK ZERKOWSKI FILM
by CaptainVertigo  12 Apr 2015
Hillwalkers planning to tackle the Poisoned Glen and Slieve Snaght have a feast of really good films to watch on YouTube. Critchley/Schwartz, McVeigh and Patrick Zerkowski have all produced really high quality material. The route planner will very much approve of the way that Patrick names his mountains as he proceeds along his route. You know exactly where he has been. Patrick brings some special shots to the table. I like the way we see him ascending through stone tunnels, and tackling various obstacles. It just deepens the viewers knowledge of the local landscape.
Music is very much a matter of personal taste. Patrick favours the dramatic, and his opening theme is very much a rehash of "The Omen 2" but the subsequent melodies are much more soothing. (I see from the Credits that all the music is all by Blankenburg so it is Blankenburg's changing moods that are at play here!)
Above all, praise is due to Patrick for the excellence of his film work. Crystal clear composition, beautifully assembled. Patrick was new to the scene a couple of years ago. Within that short time he has become one of the leading mountain film makers. A great credit to his hard work and talent
