Breathe In, Breathe Out is a Harry Potter vid by Karen aka zeta0497.

Vidder's summary: "Harry's internal and external struggles."


This vid was reviewed by Ariss Tenoh at the reel vidding comminity on December 27, 2008:

Overall impression: Good effort but the vid ultimately lacks that extra something to achieve an emotional connection.

Titles: None as far as I could see.

Music choice: The singer has a nice voice and the song is appropriately wistful and melancholy. I couldn't help feeling that it's main line of "Breath in/out" was a bit silly though.

Narration, Tone and Movement: Pretty straightforward vid in movement and tone.

Cuts, Transitions, Effects & Colouring/Coloring: There was no notable effects.

Final notes: The vid needs an emotional punch or a way to connect to the viewer. Maybe the vid was too long or the scenes were trying too hard to connect to the lyrics, often with humorous effect, but I kept waiting to be grabbed by the vid and it didn't come.
