Ummm... small problem with the pics there, Paul. Can't wait to see the result of this thread. Going to buy bedsheets with the family, so when I get home, most of it should be done.

I can't recommend this highly enough. It's excellent directed, shot and edited. Performance is damn good too naturally.

and thanks everyone. No Sweden III comp to compete with this year.
