Homemade WWII Movie

Yesterday, my sister and I went outside to some woods a little ways down the road and made a WWII video entitled "Battle in the Dead Woods". Earlier on, I had gotten on Youtube and looked up "Battle sounds". I recorded on our tape recorder gunshots/explosions/yelling etc. Well, we went out into the woods and my sister, Hannah, filmed it while balancing the camera ON the tape recorder near the speaker to catch the noise. It worked out really well.
Since I was the only "actor", I am wearing a mask when playing the Germans, and don't have a mask when playing the Americans. Also, when playing the Germans, I'm supposedly "speaking German"...which I'm NOT!:)

The battle at the river did not turn out very well...but it was good for a first try.:)


God be with you.

Those movies were really awesome Nate! I liked all of the sound affects, it really brought the movies to life!

I could not hear the sound effects. Did you steal them or what? Anyway, here is a link to a website which has free ones:

Wow, those look like a tone of fun to film. Do you remember when we were going to do some filming of us and our Nerf get-up? I still think that would be really cool.


Nathaniel Wallis PFC said...

Commander Blade-
Thanks Blade. And that's alright.:)

Thanks, the Nerf vids would be cool if we could get together again.:)

Calico Zak-
Zak I am very sorry. This morning
I got up and checked my e-mail, I got yours but did not publish it yet.But then I just got on, and I saw the comment...and thought that I had already published it, so I deleted it.But then I found out that I did not publish.:(
So will you please forgive me?

God be with you.

You've been tagged! Go to my blog to find out what you need to do.

Hmmmm, we just can't seem to be able to get together anymore. Avery's birthday was nice. My birthday wouldn't work out because it's always so cold. I mean it might work out, but I'm just not sure. Elliott's would be awesome, though. Then again, we could just try to get everyone at the same place at one time. Maybe this summer...It's an idea!!! :)

You are forgiven
