Overall a great effort. Liked the wideshot of the beach with everyone scrambling around. Gave it real depth. But, really didn't like a lot of the close up stuff. I almost felt as bad as watching Blair Witch. Lastly, the music is good, but it skips or stutters a lot. Really annoyed me and felt like switching it off.

Yeah, I kinda guessed that would be the blue screen. Is that right? If so, how did you do that? Is it Solthar's method? Or was it an actual blue screen?

Not bad, but one suggestions, if you shoot in 16x9 crop your video when you put it on the web. There's really no need to have black bars if you're watching the video on a computer. Other than that, good job nice camera shots etc.

Not bad at all but the sound during the Intro was much more impressive in the first version...

PS: sorry, I'm quite bad in English

I have an idea of what he did. Just keep the camera on a tripod locked down so it wont' move. Shoot several different shots with the people on different parts of the beach making sure they won't overlap. Bring the footage into AE or even FCP would work. Layer all the shots on top of each other and masks out all of the portions that don't have any people so the other shots will show through. Since they were all filmed from the same angle they should match up perfectly. If lighting is off you just have to feather the edges a bit. Did that makes sense? I didn't explain it too well but that's the general idea.

That was my first idea but it didint work because the pople were moving at different rates so they would go behind the first footage and it wouldnt work. I overlayed all the footage in AE and then used the darken composite mode it worked out perfectly because all the men in suits are dark against the white sand. You all like the music from the first one better? I did the tracer fire in FCP what did you think of that? And how do you like those tank emplacements? Thanks PLease Vote !!

I did give this 1 point ( i know )
let me explain ( before i need a medic )

I was watching all the films today about 20 hours at my computer, and most never had a story.
yours was the last one I saw and i guess by that time my brain was numb with lightsabre fights and no story.

I will rewatch your film in the morning with a clear head, and ask the alamdv guy to alter my vote to what i'm sure will be a way higher score.

" i have no malace or other intentions to cause offence "

Best regards

Well, aside from minor sound changes, the movie isn't better. Get some high quality sounds - that'll help the movie. And more of them. And use a ground explosion instead of a firetrail.
