My next BIG film?

For a long time now I've been pondering the idea of another movie, but perhaps one more ground breaking than any of my previous films - with a full storyline and compliment of voice actors. The general idea has been done before, but perhaps an interesting twist could be thrown in to change things up.

The idea is similar to Memphis Belle which follows a veteran American B-17 crew in World War II for their final mission. The film proposes many challenges, most of which I know can be over come without huge amounts of effort, but others may be quite a bit tougher. This is a project that would take some time to do right. The story line needs to be written and voice actors recruited. In addition I thought about making the soundtrack myself or possibly with someone else as well. FSX would be used for filming and some customizations would need to be done in order to really make it look good.

I can not say for sure if I will follow through with this idea or how long it will take. Feel free to post here if anyone out there is inspired by this idea and has any interest in helping.

For now you may DOWNLOAD a short teaser I made a long time ago, just a collection of shots and music. *Note the video requires Divx codec to view.

    I wish you luck with this video. It sounds like it will be great. Atleast I know that you make great videos. You're better than I could ever be at making videos.

    If you are using the B-17, I highly recommend the A2A B-17 with Accusim. It provides a whole new level of immersion and realism.

    My voice isn't that nice, and wouldn't it be a bit strange, a german voice for a B-17 crewmember ? It will propably take some more time to make this one, but I'm looking forward to watch it. Good luck!

    That would be amazing. A big part of my OrbiterSound playlist is filled with such music.

    I'd like to try voice-acting at some point (I sound halfway between American and English) but I haven't done it before, so I'm not sure how good I would be at it. Also, my recording equipment isn't that great, so maybe I'll just pass on it.

    I probably can't give much in voice acting, but I would we willing to help with flying, unless you're doing all the flying yourself.
