My kinda movie ... wish it had been longer! Does Javier ever bring the wife and kids along?

John Wells said...

Javier is a loner...that's why he hangs out with Ben.

THORNWALKER said...

Interesting, they both act like they've been buddies forever.

Margery Bills said...

You have a cat too? TY for the film. Javier wants your attention too. Ben cares about Javier doesn't he. Javier seemed more like a dinner companion than a big muncher.

John Wells said...

No cats here...Javier has a much smaller stomach than Ben.

Outstanding!… there are always production tweaks and the sound could be shaped, but the overall impact is thumbs up.
the shadow photo from yesterday was good too --- evocative of some of the Benita shots -- you probably have a shadow collection.

remmij said...

forgot to ask - has Ben & friends joined SAG yet?…

I have that shirt, #10!

Looking forward to a Javier cam.

John Wells said...

Keep in mind this is not "The Animal Channel". Javier is going to have to come up with something really special to get featured again. Not every video is going to be about critters.

What a life for those animals! Just eat and drink and be merry! Now John is even teaching them to take photos of themselves.

Excellent video! That just made my Friday night!

Nicki said...

What a cool idea.

This is just wonderful, John. The inter-species love warms the cockles of my heart. Seeing these two together makes me wonder how and why humans can't, or won't acknowledge the sentience, the emotional depth...and stop the suffering that goes on in factory farms and slaughterhouses. It's just wrong.

Anyway, enjoyable film!

.....brilliant!

Ben's kiss/lick to Javier did it for me. :) I love watching animals, their affection for each other ...although, I do see the other side of life often among my own crowd-of-creatures. Jealousy of me, the crowd-pleasing-boss often erupts. "Nice doggy. Bad puppy,Stop it!". :) So goes our cycle of life. Ben sure has nice horns! Friday night is my favorite time. Thank you

Such a great video showing Javier and Ben interacting. Loved the "kiss'.

Miquel said...

What is clear is that Ben is an innovative cameraman and seems to not have to go to the dentist at least attending the sound diagnosis.

I did see a bunny, I know I did, did little rabbit come in-any closer and eat with Ben & javier? I liked the film very much.

John Wells said...

The rabbits will look for an opportunity to grab a range cube then take it out of the pen to nibble on - out of range of being squished.
