Holy cow a D-Day normandy drop background is some major work.... you doing some sort of Band of Brothers fanfilm?

Anyway, maybe you could extract some useable footage from Band of Brothers, it has a scene just like it.

Well i've thought about extracting some but i dont want people to be like "oh did you get that from band of brothers" if you know what i mean. Good luck to you to Artur L with your movie. Once i get this movie done i might have to put it in the cinema. So far i've used the night overlay plugin on the some of the night shots and darkened it to make it look at night, so far im very impressed with the results. Sorry just thought i would say that. Anyways if anyone has any other ideas about this please tell me. Or me and Artur L.
