Hello again! Here is the third teaser, a scene vignette. I still have a lot to do such as sound mixing and the final output grading.

Let me know what you think!!!

Looking great! The muzzle blasts and explosions look very real. Great job! Is this part of a short film or a longer movie?

It is wuite obvious you still need some sound work done, but other than that it's still looking great.

Gabriel Campisi- Thank you! That stuff takes forever to get looking good.. This is a short film that keeps getting shorter and shorter! Now its about 18:20, and the last half flies by.

SilverDragon7- You are so right!! I slapped all the sound in and I was like "BRUTAL!!!!" but the effects were peaking 100% of the time... I'm finding sound mixing is like drumming, it is easy to do bad. Thank you again!

And thank you for the great feedback last time, I did a ton of tweaks based on the feedback. And Penguin, i took the blood splatter out! smile

Very impressive!!
I work in Hollywood on big movies and was quite impressed with your camera work and effects..
How did you or what did you use for the bullet shell discharge?? Was that a seperate program than from FXhome ?
Keep up the good work

Thank you fellas!!!

Garrison- Looks like you have been busy to. Are you doing post on Black Dawn?

John13- the sound effects set is called "GUNS" from sound ideas, it is usually $500 but from time to time they sell it for $250. Last time they was a few months ago. Just check in monthly or get on their email list. Also they are pretty cool about "student discounts.

Speaking of that I wrote them letting them know a sound effects kit would sell like hot cakes. Several guns, explosions, foley, ect ect- something like 100sfx for $50 (which is worth it). Perhaps we should petition them, the guy said he passed the idea up to the CEO, but you know how that goes...

Albin-haha me to! I'm sick of working on it biggrin

camerabuddha/John- For casings i used particular for AE, I was using Muzzle Plug (which i Adore) so i was able to do both in the same interface. Next time i do a film will you do my effects?!! HAHHAHA Feels like missed a million weekends. Maybe not a million. smile

I have a couple questions for you...

Are you going to be making a DVD?

Are you doing another film anytime soon?

SilverDragon7-No and yes. No for right this second, yes after i get rejected from a bunch of festivals. I want to start sending them out now but if i do i will screw any chance i have (from what i read..?).

And yes, I already have another idea. Not getting into details but Actual WWII, maybe 5 minutes, twice as viscerally violent and a secret. I just need an ending and two real good actors. If your in the area I can use help!!

-edit- I spent way too long on this project but I taught me what works and doesn't. In short i know i can do better.

I've watched this a few times now and think its excellant. I wonder what this would have looked like in colour? Would all the effects look as realistic?

He probably would have needed to put more hours into editing to make said effects more realistic with WWII.

Also Ceramite: I sent you a PM, I meant to add a little more info, but I'll get back at you with that.

NightMan- Thank you!! SilverDragon got it right, i figured out in my tests that black and white was Way easier and with the amount of work I could use the break. Also I really love black and white films and it fits the time period. -edit-(didn't answer your question) Probably not HAHAHA Thank you again!! biggrin

SilverDragon7- cool, PMed you back smile

great sounding fire. LOVED the ricochet off the metal one and the whizzing past sounds!

BTW I think B+W was the way to go-for sure.

The basic thing I can say about the effects is...WOW! I fought that the muzzle flashes were great, the bullets in the ground were fantastic(except for the ocasional "fake looking one"). I was sceptical when the soldier threw the grenade (I mean usually explosions are the hardest thing to get wright) but when it blasted - WOW! So let me just say: "What a magnificent film (or should I say teaser!).

Hey yeah wow that was incredible! I loved the effects and the camera angles, they really blew me away. At first I was skeptical because it looked like Germans were fighting Germans but the effects completely deviated me from doubting this clip. And did you use FX for this entire thing? Or did you do the explosions with really special effects? Also, where did the shell casings come from?? They looked awesome.

Hi, I just watched the whole thing on the site, incredible! The effects were up to the standard of Saving Private Ryan even. Brilliant storyline, and the action was amazing! You should be really proud of that film.
