perhaps we can collaborate...do you want a tripod?
maybe a small camcorder will be better anyway......
I just dont really want to do any filming - too much like work...

Absolutely

The more the merrier.

Can you bring it - and a tripod - along for the weekend - even if its just stays in the back of the car.

The more cameras we have, the better - so long as we don't start seeing them in shot.

Tiny / Forester - any chance of bringing the Tanks ?

We could do some lovely forced perspective shots and get some armour in the video.

Plus any other props (working or otherwise) would be greatly appreciated.

I'll be filming and taking photos throughout the weekend, so we should hopefully get plenty of footage.

Anybody have a preference - should we do it in the style of old newsreel footage or more like Band of Brothers ?

Also, anyone know a good editor ?

Newsreel is a bit dull IMO. I like Stubblehopper's suggestion of doing it ala Cross of Iron intro. 8)

Happy Days

I'll arrange shooting it, you can cut it.

Maybe we should start a new thread with ideas for video footage.

I've PM'd Ed at IED to see if we can get use of the site (for an hour or two) after the end of the game on Sunday - if anybody fancies hanging around for filming.

Anyway, more discussion on the new Churchill's Revenge Filming thread.

See you there.

SS Sturmann(Del)JD7 has been working on a manual for CR based on what we covered during the Hohenstaufen training day, its all standard British Army fieldcraft stuff, well worth a read in prep for the next big event. He should be posting it here soon, it covers patrols and ambuses, good work Del, check it out.

and none of this english "fair play" rubbish,

we dont care if its fair, or cricket.

we will be happy if its all one sided! :lol: (german sided of course)

we want to oblierate the allies , and keep them on the run from the starting whistle.

who cares if the allies have a "bad day out" its all about the glorious german army anyway. :lol:

I will bring my tiger tank, its not running at the moment as it drove off the table & broke its front wheel, i will try & over brush it with some dirt to make it look more the part, although if its photographed in B&W it should be ok,
