Basho Films is proud to present a film commission for http://war-zone.co.uk/; a new milsim company setting up in the UK.
I was contacted about doing a film for this new company, but there was a problem – they had no footage yet. Always ready to meet a challenge I suggested a short ad using stock footage. The client sent me a simple storyboard and I got to work.
Here at Warzone Battle Simulation we aim to provide all participants with the most realistic and immersive military simulation experience that is possible in airsoft. We also aim to give the participants the opportunity to develop themselves and their own skills in a difficult and challenging environment and to learn from failure.
We firmly believe that military simulation is so much more than just dressing up and pretending to be soldiers and that it is a unique platform with which to help individuals learn more about themselves, meet new friends, reinforce existing friendships, push their own boundaries, bond with teammates and challenge themselves both physically and mentally on all levels.
Warzone is headed by a core of an extremely experienced military simulation airsofters with a combined total of over 25 years of large scale event organisation. We intend to use all of it to raise the bar and reset the set the standards of national military simulation events. That said, we don’t rest on our laurels, and actively seek out all constructive criticism which we use to improve. We are emotionally mature enough to know that nothing is perfect and that there is always room for improvement. We seek the opportunity to improve at all times and in all things.
We expect a great deal of ourselves and as such we expect a great deal of those individuals who attend our events.
If you are a pure bred skirmisher, sorry, our events are not for you.
However, if you are bored of skirmish, you want to take your game to the next level and learn new skills or if you are already a seasoned military simulation airsofter, we are confident that our events will more than satisfy you needs.
The satellite zoom effect is a classic technique and one that takes a day or so to produce. I was very happy with the result and had fun adding in sound effects of wind, visual effects of lensing, clouds and dust as well as that tinnitus sound I can’t resist.
Take a look at the final version:
