Hi i've been loking for this for a while, and so far I have not found anything. What i'm looking for is a WW1 battlefield backdrop with no soldiers or anythung, so i can add my own stuff on.

Any thoughts? thanking you in advance

If you can't find any existing stuff you can use, you might want to think about simply using a normal field, then adding in the WW1 elements yourself, such as trenches etc, using a compositing program or Photoshop etc...

My backyard is a field. It has a bit of marshland on one end, trees on another side, my house on one side and some more house on the last side. Yet you could put other backgrounds behind the field if needed in photoshop. I can take some stills for you from different angles and what not. I could even get a bit of an aerial view from my roof. I could also film some for you as stock footage, although I don't know what camera your using. Mine is a Panasonic PV-GS300 which has 3CCDs, widescreen and fairly good quality. Let me know if you want some stills, or anything.

Thats going to be very hard to find. You should be able to find battlefield pics but they'll have soldiers or vehicles in them.
