    Many areas that switch from color to black and white;overall color of groups is lazy and non-individualistic. Very sloppy, IMO.

    A different world.

    I always thought it was pretty cool to realize that even though things were so different - people as a whole have not changed much in centuries. We share the same hopes, wants and dreams as they did - even though we might see them as more primitive because they did not have our tech and knowledge.

    Different world, same people.

    Great thread! Love your stuff!

    Hans Zimmer is an awesome composer.

    If you like that kind of music, check out Epic Score - some really good 'cinematic' music.
