Wow - another fantastic video, Reflected - great camera work, tells the story wonderfully, and builds viewer empathy and investment into the pilot's success and career!

ROF now has their own answer to CloD's Barfly, and I hope to see links to this vid show up in SimHQ, 1C, etc. as a great way to recruit more ROFers. :S!:

You bugger Ref with your well edited pathos, I can't stop blubbering …. :cry: It resonates with a thousand stories of unknown aviators cut short during those tumultuous years … :cry: sniff ….

Thank you guys, I'm glad you liked it and found it moving. That was my aim :)

I've been planning to make this video for a long time, but I didn't know what aircraft to use and what the music should be. Then it clicked: the soundrack of "Joyeux Noel" would be perfect for such a video. I went for the Bristol fighter because of the variety of the missions (bombing, recce, ground attack, offensive patrols, etc…)

I tell you a secret: the last big fighting part was recorded in QMB, as in the career mode there aren't any big combats like that (8 vs 8), and all the fighting happens below historical altitudes. Quite unsuitable for the "grand finale". ;) (fingers crossed for a fix in the new patch)

I hope it will attract more players to RoF, therefore I posted it on every forum I could find :D

Great video, man.

I have a slight critique, which is an occupational hazard of mine, so please bear with me and don't take it personally.

In the second "Indiana Jones"-esque sequence with the map blending over footage of the bristols. You have the map moving left to right and the aircraft in the background going right to left. If everything went in the same direction the shot would come together much more neatly.

That sort of consistency in angle can help support the narrative very subtly if you only show the starboard side of the aircraft going out, then switching to port side as they fly back.

The timing to the music, as well as the composition of the shots are very well done though. :D

Preemptive apologies for the nitpickery, carry on.

Thanks, that's actually a good suggestion, I'll keep it in mind next time.
It's funny, because I watched "The raiders of the lost ark" right after finishing this video :D

Really superb. It must have taken many hours to make. I'm sure it will bring in players. Who couldn't get the sim after seeing that?

Thank you everyone. I would like to share a secret, I don't know if anyone noticed this:

The main word in the lyrics is "home" so I used it as a skeleton for the video.

When they sing "home" in the first verse, the sky opens up and the Biffs hurl down on the Huns. That's what the young aviator thinks - "this is home, this is where I belong, this is the game of my life."

The next home is sung when he's flying back from a supply depot bombardment. War is cruel after all, and the pilot starts to think about his real home and family. The moment when you hear "home" the shadow of the Biff runs across the little farmhouse that might as well be his real home if it was in England.

The third home has a different meaning again: he's coming home, i.e. he's dying. The picture changes to first person - he's wounded and the sounds are muted - he's alone. And the very last home is when the plane sheds its wings during its last plunge to mother Earth.

So did it come through?

I'm not overly familiar with the music but the three classic stages of a story, beginning, middle and end, were very clear.

Not consciously, no - and I don't think I would have noticed those details on my own - very cool!

I think they have an emotional effect whether noticed or not. :)
