Hey guys, I felt the need to blog this for you immediately it is gone 11pm so there maybe some typos but il come back and edit them out, through my random everyday browsing of Youtube i rarely find any decent footage that is actually watchable for a length of time, but tonight whilst browsing i came across a video called Cardboard Warfare so i thought “oh what the hell” sounds funny probably some half ass piece of shit movie, but infact it is extremely well done, i was going to say clever but its a simple idea its just the way that the creators have put it all together and how they have expanded on the idea.
This is the video in question and i extremely enjoyed watching it, the concept of the idea is brilliant and well put together, theres a lot of attention to detail go into this project and its a real inspiration to see what such hard work and graft to do. I really enjoyed watching the short film and the way it has been put together with the cardboard weaponry, the tank was amazing and must of taken a great amount of time to create, i feel there could of been some improvements to the short film I’m afraid to say. One thing i noticed throughout the film was the lack of consistency in one shot the car will be plastered with bullet holes and blood, yet in the next shot the car seems to be untouched from the battle. Another thing i feel the movie lacked was the WOW factor, i think at the end when the actor jumps of the tank it should explode right there whilst he is in there to create a more epic escape. One thing i did like in the short film though was there wasn’t much dialogue at all throughout the whole thing just none stop action, for these guys though it seems to have payed off they’ve even gone on to make sequels to Cardboard Warfare which is around 24 minutes and that is a great watch, the lighting and special effects on that short film are amazing. The acting has gone up a huge step from the first version and it show’s a huge improvement from the first Cardboard Warfare. If they made this into a film i would pay to go and watch it.
PWNISHER is there youtube channel go and check there page out and have a look at some of there films, you will find there tremendously well done i can’t wait for another Cardboard warfare, if i was lucky i wouldn’t mind getting involved it would be a great experience for me just starting at university on a media production course this is something i would want to accumulate to making i the future and i hope some of my footage can be half as a good as this.
