When I started the Operation Sealion campaign I had always planned for it to be fairly fluid and open ended. Less a campaign more and ongoing narrative to provide a background for collecting and gaming. Since the start we have had somewhere around 35 battles using a range of different rules and scenarios from large to very small.
I have been looking at a way to summarise the first day of the campaign for a while. Thanks to Norm’s recent innovative video I have spent the last few days messing about in iMovie. The results are now uploaded on to tube.
If you have a spare 10 minutes and you enjoy my Sealion Campaign you may well enjoy👍I should ask you to like/share or some such but really this was for mine and your pleasure. If I manage to bring a smile to a few faces during lockdown then all to the better.
Outstanding, Matt! You have so many wonderful toys.ReplyDelete
As LittleWars TV just announced the creation of an awards program called the “Caesars,” your video should be nominated as a top contender. I will submit my choice and encourage others to do likewise.
When you win for best production in Wargaming Documentary, try not to forget the people that helped you to reach such cinematic heights.
Thanks Jonathan....may be a little premature to write my acceptance speech but you kind words might encourage another production in the future 🙂Delete
I put in nominations for this work for the Caesars. Good luck!Delete
Spendid Matt, I can appreciate just how much work went into that.ReplyDelete
Thanks Norm....you started it ! Like a lot of tech it is getting the hang of the software, after several hours i got quite quick, a second production would be much easier. If I am honest it was really quite fun and a real sense of creativity so I will be doing more if I can find the time. Thank you 👍Delete
Thanks Phil it was quite fun 👍Delete
Great work but apropos Jonathans comment - please DO try to forget everyone who helped you on your way - or, like Spike Milligan said when accepting a lifetime BAFTA Award...." I am not going to thank anyone, because I did it all myself!"ReplyDelete
Thank you perhaps as I said above a little early for acceptance speech but if I provided some light relief in these difficult times then I have achieved something positive 👍Delete
Very, very cool Matt. Love the soundtrack. Liked and subscribed.ReplyDelete
Thanks Dean , you’ve made me realise I didn’t credit the music to Mr Mozart. Thank you for subscribing it may be some time before I do another video, although I think I have the technique better now.Delete
Wooooow! That, s great!ReplyDelete
Thanks Michal 👍Delete
Wow, that is superbly done Matt! I wouldn't know where to start. You certainly have fantastic figures and terrain with which to fight your campaign. Keep up the good work:)ReplyDelete
Thanks Steve, if you have followed for a while all the photos are from ‘real’ battles played and blogged as part of the campaign. It was quite fun to do something different and creative so I will do another one sometime when I have a suitable idea and or enthusiasmDelete
Wonderful viewing Matt, loving the machine noise, makes me want to dive back in to WW2... excellent stuff.ReplyDelete
Meant to say... this would be a useful read for you as the bridgehead develops.Delete
Mick is a local historian and the detailed maps is perfect for gaming scenario's.
Thanks will check it outDelete
Thanks Stuart WW2 is just one of my favourite periods 🙂Delete
Wonderful, just wonderful!ReplyDelete
Thanks David it took a bit of time but was actually quite fun so I might do something else in the future 😀Delete
That was absolutely brilliant. I enjoyed immensely remembering the games I fought, how many shots does it take to miss Churchill. Brilliant filmReplyDelete
Many thanks Martin and thanks for the French which was a nice touch 👍Delete
Excellent, just excellent.ReplyDelete
Many thanks if people enjoyed it is was worth the little effort required 🙂Delete
Very nice indeed I have shared your post here https://wargames-directory.com/forums/topic/operation-sealion-s-day-the-movie/ReplyDelete
Feel free to join and share your work
Thanks Andrew that is fine, you can tell I don’t really promote the blog that much so if a few more people see it that is fine 👍Delete
A really enjoyable piece of ‘Newsreel’....
All the best. Aly
Thanks Aly I had such fun putting it together I suspect there may be more to follow in the future 🤔ReplyDelete
Very coooooool. I am impressed with all the effort that must of took but I’m glad to read that you enjoyed it. Videos are becoming a great way to share our miniature battles and yours are quite nice. 😀ReplyDelete
Thanks Stew it was creatively rewarding. I will be doing something else at some point I have lots of ideas.🤔Delete
Excellent stuff! Linked over at weirdwwii.com for the rest of the gang to see!ReplyDelete
Brian & Mel
Thanks for taking the time to watch and comment.....I do secretly have some Z but that is an alternative campaign in the planning 🧟♂️Delete
35 battles for this campaign already wow that’s very good going! Well done.ReplyDelete
Thank you i guess the plan was not to rush to a conclusion 😀Delete
Amazing work! I never watch these type of video wargames. They are usually boring. This kept my attention all the way through... BRAVO!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Dave glad you enjoyed, it was fun to make and I needed a way to summarise day one so two birds killed with one stone and all that 😀Delete
