I thought this was very well done for 12 year olds with no experience!
Dag has more screen time than Venom did in his own movie.
A modern age Viking. Superb example of harmony with nature.

You can’t be the most elusive man and have a movie about your life

Your reporter must be awestruck someone can actually survive without Starbucks and a cellphone
Dag was elusive even on this video. It was over halfway before he was even introduced into the video. Gotta say though, he's living the dream!
Finkus Lahoya
Great music at the end, who made it?
This didn't seem to provide any information

The 'most' elusive man doesn't exist, but there are obviously hermits that nobody knows about.

Damn these comments are so critical wtf. I thought it was really cool. Suspenseful buildup, and a worthwhile and interesting payoff. Good work!
