Tiger has given me an idea

Post by Mothyp » Wed Oct 25, 2006 8:11 am

He can tell you all about that

but with merlins skill at editing plus our skill at mission building we could recreate the 15th sept ala Batttle of britain(with "come in blue 2" lady and everything to make a tangmere presentation

we just need 20 or so TPs, a good BoB coop,merlin to video and edit the track,and of course the bob soundstrack

we could then put this on the front of the website for a bit of bait for like minded future TPs

we fly the mission then merlin takes the best bitsand makes a 30 second or so montage with "come in blue 2"the soundtrack and lots of juciy air to air shots!

"come in blue 2" aka 'War in the Air' by Sir William Walton. In that case I would like to start in with the control room "Is everybody up, . . . reserves, . . ..

I could morph the BoB film by reducing the colour then it would blend in with the Tangmere footage. I will put a slice up soon so that every understands what I am thinking of.

To do this justice I would need .ntrk's from more than one person pref having Nvidia graphics cos the water loooks so nice :D.

I can then go from hunter to hunted. If BoB Sept 15th then I would like some set pieces with a 111 going into the sea etc.

I believe 30 seconds is not enough (although the Wing Co is always right :wink: ) it would need at least 60 possibly 90 seconds that would make the file about 22mb for someone to download.

The point to remember is that to make use of the tempo that particular piece of music is 4 - 5 minutes long.

Merlin you get artistic direction and that opening sequence sounds sooopa

if you could liasie with tiger over sorting out whatever scenes you need his new aerobat could provide the core of the film and then we can just film one big coop to add anyother en masse footage you may need?

things like massed he111 coming over can be filmed quite well if thats all thats in the sky,so a quick coop can be made with 40 plus he111 but nothing else the track saved and then you can paste that into other footage etc of other coops

but apart from these ideas i will leave all the artisitic control to you and the stunt men to Tiger, after all i cant have a great idea(inspired by Tiger) and also be expected to think it through ?

Tiger/Merlin let me know what you need and i will rush the paper work!

Why only the stunt men for the main pilots for this? Isnt this a combat type movie and not an aerobatics show :shock: Or am i missing something?

Reggie I think the stunt men refers to the fact that a lot of these scenes will need to be pre arranged, so all pilots will be stunt men.

ie: I will need some Spits, Hurri's and 109's with fuel leaks, black smoke, all crossing each other to show the confusion in the air.

A side benefit from this is to show it to non online combat sim pilots how we can add a fair degree of realism, with that in mind I also need a couple of people that comfortable using Track IR throughout the combat scene to add to that realism for the scene.

I would like at least two volunteers that I know are comfortable with this that can record the track, Stapme and Tom (although this is an acting job of sorts we could settle for 'Tom's ego'), anyone else let me know.
It would be helpful if the screen resolution the pilots use is the same so can everyone that is involved in sending .ntrks give those details.

Tiger over to you. S!

Why not prepare several short films?

Several ideas:

Set up a "bounce" showing Hurris climbing flat out and 109s bouncing them.

Show a 109 limping home and ditching near to the beach.

Hurris attacking lots of Stukas during a diving attack, or ranks of 111s.

Spits chasing a recce Ju88.

Replicate that film of the 111 going straight into the sea.

Show a "rhubarb" with lots of low cloud and Spits shooting up a LW airfield.

Merlin,
agreed with all there is been said here.
What i talked about with Mothy was specific Tangmere PR.
I wanted an overview of ALL our spits at least on the ground, sunday skins of course

first shot: all 4 squadrons in perfect line abreast along the taxiway, the CO making a low pass over us

second shot: all squadrons are lined up on the runway as follows:
1 Squadron in a big Vic,very closely behind :43 sqn in a Vic,followed by 145 in a Vic, and 601 in a Vic, so four Vic's, very close together, and a volounteer to fly over us from several directions (anyone can go first,i've put the squads here in numerical order :roll: )

next four shots: each Squadron takes off, with plenty Static cameras placed and 2 meter height

This combined whit the above could give a nice movie. Personally i find 60 or 90 secs too short but thats not the main issue right now.
If you agree, just tell and we could PM each other to work out the details
