WWII documentary on the FS100

Just came back from shooting part two of my WWII documentary "1945-Entering Germany"

4 exhausting 15 hrs days, but still a happy camper with the FS100 (wish I had the 700 though).
It's about how the German people experienced the end of WWII and the taking over by the US Army.
Lot's of interviews and reenacting what they have to say.

I already shot about 30 minutes of program last year, got the rest now, so it's gonna be almost 1hr of program. Hope I can sell it to TV networks around the globe.

Just bolted together a little teaser from one of my favorite scenes, I shot last week.
Work in progress of course - just a little first light correction and slapped some music over it, to give you guys an idea.

Frank

The FS100 looks good. How many camera's on this shoot?

Looks quite ambitious.

Re: WWII documentary on the FS100

Looks really interesting and very impressive with all the costumes, vehicles, period buildings etc. How long was the shoot? Did you try and get coverage of the whole sequence or were you just shooting moments?

Re: WWII documentary on the FS100

Only one camera - one man show.

I shot for 4 days, what you see is just a little bit, out of hours of material.
This shots in the teaser took about 2 hrs.

I directed some stuff, but since those are some of the best WWII US Army reenacters you can find in Europe, they know damed well how to properly raid a house. Probably better than the original GIs ;-)

So I just told them roughly what I want, and they did that raid several times, so I could get different angles.
Also the vehicle scenes, they drove through that village 5 or 6 times - I jumped from truck beds to Jeep hoods and did some wider static shots.

Re: WWII documentary on the FS100

Its a lot more impressive when you not only see the results but learn how you accomplished this. If you had a large crew with associated budget that would be one thing, still nice cinematography, but it makes it that much better that it was one camera running and gunning [so to speak].

Looks great.

Looks great. I would love to find an old school jeep like that. I bet they are fun to drive.
