  1. Spectacular scenery! Cutting in and out from one scenery to another, especially when you are going from say water to fire, I found it jarring. Maybe you can group each environment scenery more or less together and fade in and out of different environments. Edit out the real time snips of video on some of the clips, they do nothing to enhance the overall production.

  2. Humans have a binocular viewing angle of about 120°, which is roughly comparable to a lens with 10mm focal length on a fullframe camera. Most of that human field of view is peripheral vision though, hardly usable for recognizing subjects. Only about the central 7° cone is usable for recognizing faces, comparable to ~250mm focal length on a fullframe camera. To say that 50mm on FF most closely resembles the human field of view is therefore indeed nonsensical. Just like people claiming the human eye can discern 300 megapixels: it's our brains incredible post-processing abilities where most of the magic happens. As to your original question, I found an interesting read here. To quote from this source: "... the 50-mm anecdote persists—in part because of the history of lens manufacturing, but also because it taps into the latent fears, anxieties, and imaginations that surround the use of technology for seeing. It’s comforting to believe that there is a standard view, and that photographic apparatuses can reproduce it."
