WWII

Freddiew gives it a shot:

Pretty decent job, but their videos are definitely becoming more and more pointless.

I wonder if they are doing a lot of paid work now, and don’t have much time for these free YouTube vids that got them to where they are today?

The same story which I based one of my shirt designs on:

The design i’m referring to of course is the Keep Calm And Carry One t-shirt.   Pretty neat history to the original poster.  I’m always surprised to hear 2.5M posters were printed at the beginning of WWII, and yet none surfaced until the year 2000.  I suppose paper is pretty fragile for long term storage if the conditions are not ideal.   I’m just waiting for a huge stockpile to be found someday so I can pick up an original to hang on the wall.

 €70,000 to fund the live action portion of the film.  There was no money left for visual effects so the director did them all for free over a 6 month period:

A British fighter pilot pursues the german ace that shot down his friend across sky and country… with murder in mind. But he discovers it’s not so easy to kill a man when you have to look them in the eye.

You can read more about the movie over at the website – HERE

€70,000 converts to $110,000 USD today which seems like a lot of money to me for a 9 minute movie.   They did a nice job on it though.

Thoughts?

Even if you have no interest in history, you should take the time out to see the sacrifice that was made and the hardship that was endured.

I haven’t played (or even heard of) the previous brothers in arms video games.

Looks like it might have potential, despite its Inglourious Basterds ripoff trailer.

You can pre order the game – HERE

Anyone have any opinion on the previous games leading up to this one?
