VIMY RIDGE - The Story of Edward Sims

This is the story of Edward Sims, a soldier who died the day before Vimy Ridge and wrote to his wife overseas. The letter made it, but he did not.

Quicktime 6 is required to hear the sound

Great movie! Awesome cinematography, good effects, and cool costumes/location. Although I wish I knew a little bit more about Vimy Ridge so this stuff would make sense to me. Why don't you guys use real blood? It'd make it a 5 star movie!11 evil And what happened to that one clip you submitted to the cinema a few weeks ago, wasn't that part of this? tard

Actually, all these Vimy Ridge's ur seeing are History Projects. I did mine first semester, which started it all, and everyone else was making it too, cuz they thought if i get a perfect mark (which i did), then using the same topic will result in the same thing. unfortunately (or not), no one came close to 100%.

the 2 i submitted are just 2 of the like 15 that i helped/did most/all work for.

the next vimy ridge will be in a week called Vimy Ridge: Special Edition, with alam effects added, changed titles, and a redone soundtrack, specifically written for this vid (which mean it's original...)

The video is looking very good... I like most of the camera and the editing. There was mainly just one thing that really disturbed me... That was your actors laughing from time to time...
(for example after the punch in the face)
This is something one must never ever let happen. It destroys every feeling. You need to work with your actors, even if they are untalented or unmotivated... :)

lacking a bit of content...that's why it deserves a 2?

as for content wise, this got 85% for content, simply because the actual tactics used were not described.

im a bit lost as to what you mean by you never saw the shot to the face coming. you mean it surprised you? isn't that a good thing?

Hi,

I saw the cameramans shadow a few times, and the fight scene could have been a lot tighter.

a little long for me with slow bits,

music was good.

I think you are learning on each one you do.

The soundtrack and the subject matter help to give this film a lot of depth. I would have liked to have seen better costumes, but I know that can make things a bit more expensive.

Keep up the good work. smile
