Wow, thats cool. Ur muzzle flashes rocked. The Explosions where added well. The only things that botthered me were

1. that one explosion that went of and then it shows the ground burning for a bit

2. The hits from the shot gun on the tree.

3. The last gunshots at the end...the sound of it was a clicking sound, not a gun noise.

overall, well done..nice little scene

thanks for the input. for the muzzle flashes i just put a cinematic muzzle flash on there for two frames and put an orange alamdv lightbulb on top with a little bit of glow and then i put some slightly transparent breath vapour after the flash. for the hits i used streak sparks 2 and ground particles and breath vapour.

How did you make the person in front of the explosion? The masking is really hard to do, and I'm guessing you did it another way...what was it?

Not to be nit picky or anything, but you eather needed to use a tripod or go fpf on the fire as fire while burning does not burn in motion with the not so stable camera
