Plunderball, Part 1

So, at last, Part 1 of "Plunderball", the first episode in the series, is finally on YouTube. In all honesty it is just a draft cut, as there are bits that need tweaking, and there is another scene I wish to shoot and insert. But for the time being, you can see the opening scenes of The David Elworthy Series at the link below...

Sickness and health

I apologise for the lack of recent activity - I have ben sufferring from the good old influenza virus (or flu as it is more commonly known!!)!! I spent the last four days confined to bed with a fever, although I am on the mend now. I shall very soon get to work editing the footage from Christmas, and I intend to have Episode 1 Part 1 on You Tube before this month is out - it is pretty much finished, I just need to find way to compress it down to only 100MB!! Any suggestions any one?

Film Footage

I have edited the first bit of footage that I shot over Christmas (the shortest bit, in fact - it was only four shots!!). It is from the Teaser of Episode 1 and involves Sergeant Edwards at the UNIT checkpoint. I just had to slot it into the footage that I had already edited.

Below are two stills from the edited footage.
As you can see, the British uniforms work quite well, as Edward appears to be disappearing into the background!!!!
