Watched it several times, good work!  I love the camera speed and music choice.  The only comment i have is that you should randomize your repeating elements by scale and rotation.  Other than that i think it is one of the more dynamic examples i have seen here in the gallery.  Keep up the good work!

Some C&C:

-Reduce cloud lighting a bit so the bloomy spots get reduced
-Clouds speed could be lowered. You now have a excellent slow camera speed, a very relaxing pianotune
but the clouds look like you're on Antartica in the middle of a winterblizzard. This imo contradicts the mood.
I realize animated clouds are very tempting to put in but in your scene it would probably work best if the clouds didn't move at all.
-Water in front of the house is very turbulent. It's either a whirlpool or there's a micro hurricane hovering
above it but it would've looked better if the water was almost completely flat.
-Try to avoid camera shots showing the void of the terraintile at all costs. This completely ruins the
impression you are watching something that could be real.
-Some plants stick through the concrete of the gate. In real life this only happens in Cambodia and even then mostly on old temples  :D

How long did the whole movie and setup take you?
It's very good as-is already. Looking forward to see more!

Thanks for the comments, all will taken on board for the next project.

I think it took about 4hrs to generate the MP4 scenes. Setup was probably a similar timeframe.
