Is it the absence or presence of combat or some kind of action? If the aerobatics demonstrate enough talent, can they carry a track/movie?

What are some elements you guys would like to see or that you feel are missing from most tracks and movies that people make?

EDIT: I was also leaning strongly towards making movies for each nationality represented in the game (with accompanying homegrown music), starting the most prominent few just for the sake of ease. I am leaning pretty strongly towards Zeppelin for the Brits' side http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You guys also have suggestions for some music selections from the featured nationalities?

The Kanaljager series is exactly what I like in a movie.

I know it's a mix of sims but they are very entertaining. Especially the postman scene http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The music should be from the era - heavy metal and modern soundtracks don't work for me and also the music should not blot out sound effects and voices.

The film should be realistic using aircraft that actually fought each other with the correct markings and insignia.

Footage of human flown planes always look much better than AI formations as well.

And it shouldn't be too sentimental http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Good lead-up, good camera work, good music score, some type of story-line, action, action, action! Stay away from the long flight times. Some movies have too much of it though some is necessary.

I'll also say that although I like many of the movies available, I prefer the ones in widescreen format like "Come With Me".

the drama

usually it requires a script beforehand, as throwing various action-clips together won't create a memorable movie, there has to be a backbone in it, a message to say, preferably a meaningful message related to IL2, ww2 etc.

RC_Kedik's "Come with me" tops my private chart... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Anyone know a good site with some Il-2 movies? Is there just pretty much whats available on the movie forum here or are there any you folks can recommend?

I think what IL2 movies lack is a human element. Some of the quick cut aways you normally see in a movie can't be done effectively in IL2. There are no human hands on a throttle or stick so a quick cutaway of the stick while the plane is performing a manuever is a dissassociated shot and would look strange. No real pilot head shots etc etc....

I love what can be done with IL2 movies. There are a lot of talented folks making entertaining films, but there's a sterility about them that a human element, if possible, would remove.

(I don't need hands or pilot feet when I'm playing.... but for movies they'd add a touch)

What I really like about movies or tracks is watching someone who can fly like it's effortless....almost like the plane is an extension of their body.

I know what I don't like in a track or movie; AI planes. If I wanted to see the AI bumble around, I'd load up the game myself.

I wish there were more aerobatic videos to watch. Not "look at me spin and stuff", but really skilled stuff.

the best movie ive EVER seen was Maximum Bob's (spelling) movie in tribute to RJ mitchell... it had great editing GREAT sound FXs... and the music was the perfect match.... the clips had all different types of dfing and ground atttack... it also had a "soul" if you will... it became more than just some highlight reel.

A+ movie if you ask me
