I finally found my camera, and was planning a video once all my gear came. I've done many videos, sadly many unfinished ones died with my last hard drive. But a few survived and were put up on my youtube.
Pretty nice effort. Your editing looks good. There are simple little tricks you can use next time to add realism if you don't have blank guns or money. Have someone blow cigarette smoke into the rifle firing scenes before you start filming, use a talcum powder, dust/dirt and foliage mixture to simulate mortar attacks as the troops are running (they step on a hidden board with a rock in the middle and spray the mixture upwards) and if you have a paintball gun, you can actually half empty a red paintball with a syringe and inject a little red dye in it to simulate bloody bullet hits. Paintballs will usually not show up on camera. Paint guns work great for water hits/splashes as well. Give it a "shaky" documentary feel by running behind the actors during intense scenes. I used to make little 8mm films when I was younger but they are still all on film and I haven't bothered to transfer them to DVD yet.

This may be a little off topic but it's close enough. Speildberg's first movies were I believe little WWII films he made when he was just a kid. I don't know the name but there's one where its just him and a bunch of friends who ran around playing army essentially. He used the plank with dirt mixture explosion effect. You could probably find them somewhere. If/when you see them, it'll make you feel a lot better about your videos, and it's cool to see his "early work".

Thanks for the input doom! I have used the board and fulcrum trick, and am in the process of making paintballs full of dirt and fake blood. I also have new editing software and can now add muzzle flashes and smoke. I'll have a few more movies up on youtube soon.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
