Very well done, Cagnicourt! Quite an entrance you make to this forum!

Just one thing from a guy who has worked in the television-industry for over 10 years: I wouldn't use those flashy effects every editing-programme has nowadays. They tend to distract the viewer from what the film is about and only come in handy when the quality of the footage is an absolute disaster. Which is a problem you don't have.

Can't wait for part two...!

regards

Excellent. I very much look forward to part 2. The intriguing story of the Welsh soldier particularly appeals to me as I teach in a Welsh school. Over the last few weeks the students have been checking out their family to provide posters / photo's etc. of ancestors who fought / died. They are doing so well that our allotted display place is now full and overflowing onto the corridor walls. I can think of a really good way of fitting this video into the final stages of the project. Is it likley to be available soon?

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie,

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.

PS: Will you please either post part two here (I have subscribed to this thread) or have it announced on the 9 O'Clock news so I don't miss it :)

I really did like it!

A very big welcome! I enjoyed your video, the pace was slower than most videos these days. I do not know if you did this deliberately but it was most effective when covering the theme of so many dead. The mood was set for the feel of reverence and wonder you tend to feel when visiting these places. Well done indeed.

I know it's already said, but that was one heck of an entrance to the forum, well done and welcome.

So, when pt2 coming out.... hopefully soon as I can't wait for the sequel!

I must also say that the music added to the moment (13 minutes didn't feel that long).

I just found it by searching for the title on Google Video however it generated an error message when trying to view.

Here is the new link. I tweaked the first part a little RE Roel22's suggestion.

Here is the French version. Please forward to any friends in France you might have.

The French title is "DÉVOILÉ'' (unveiled). French is my first language. (I am an 11th generation French-Canadian, which is an unusual background for a WW1 buff here in Canada.)

Thank you for the warm welcome and the volume of feedback!! Keep it coming! Here I though LOST IN PLAIN SIGHT was a little too 'home-made'.

There are several more parts to come. I have to get around to doing them. The story is very rich and includes many interesting characters.

I have received all kinds of email saying WHERE IS PART II?

Cheers!
