.:Battlefield: Chapter One

“The worst of it is that we can’t see either side.
We can’t see what we’re up against.
We see the battles and how they effect us…
but, we’re just stuck in the middle.”

~Battlefield

Note: Viewing the video at YouTube gives a much better image for some reason…

Battlefield: Chapter One is complete. Eventually there will be a much higher resolution Flash version when I get www.DarosFilms.com up and running. But until then, you’ll have to see the YouTube version. I would post this to Stage6, but there isn’t a way to turn off the download feature to my knowledge, and I’m not ready to release this for free yet.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible and supported the creation of Battlefield. Chapters Two through Five have a lot of good material in them, and I can’t wait to get started editing the footage down to a final product.

P.S. For those interested, this was shot on two Panasonic HVX200 cameras, and edited with Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 and Adobe After Effects CS3. Also, most of the special effects were crafted with the Trapcode Particular plugin for AE.

P.P.S. It seems that I didn’t make it entirely clear that this isn’t set during any historical war. There’s a little bit of allegory here if you think about it…

.:Battlefield Sneak Peek

“I will not risk open war.”
“Open war is upon you whether you risk it or not.”

For a incredibly hi-res version that requires DivX, click here:
Battlefield at Stage6
(trust me, it’s worth it)

This is a sneak peek of the version of Battlefield: Chapter One that will be played at the TBC Superbowl Commercial Party this coming Sunday. It won’t be up forever (hence the sneak peek portion), but I wanted to share what I have with you all.
