    Great camerawork, nicely filmed and I also like the use of the Goereski Symphony. JUst a couple of points that didn’t ring true, the uniforms were far to clean and also the soldiers hair is too long – head lice was a common problem in the 1st World War and that’s why the army brought in the short back and sides.

  2. pbloom says:

    agreed! But we couldn’t afford to get the uniforms cleaned so we couldn’t dirty them!!

    I thought that may be the case, anyway it doesn’t matter, the filmwork and editing is spot on as is your choice of music.

    I have recently purchased the EX3, based on your coments and work etc. I am very pleased with it, but for the timne being I still need to produce standard SD DVDs, do you have any tips for converting HD footage to SD?

    I wish you a Happy and prosperous New Year.

    I wonder how it would Look if it had a Look of film from that era? Like it was in the trench war.

    The Trench.

    Amazing work. I have spent hours and hours searching the web for video shot with 35mm adaptors. You’re is simply the best. I just book marked your web page.

    I just ordered a Letus mini for my HV40. I can’t wait to try it out. I have one of the original Letus XL’s that I use from time to time with my XL H1.

    Again. Fantastic work.

    Good work. If you would shoot it today, what would you choose ? Ex1 and Letus or 5D / 7D ?

  10. Daniel says:
