I liked the visuals, watched it on your YT channel

I just had a horrible thought after doing the filming of the formations from above and noting that as the video was edited, the pieces would move between where I had them – I could make complete demo videos moving the army men and pointing with a stick. For example, showing a hasty attack, break contact etc.
I’m not talking about full-on ‘stop-frame’ photography (whatever it is called) but simply moving the pieces and editing the video together.May 9, 2019 at 6:51 pm #67605Joe (G.W.N.S.)Moderator
Hey if the flyboys can use briefing sticks with little aircraft, I don’t see anything wrong with your training aids.
In fact I prefer it to the whiteboard when in video format IMHO.

That would work well. Plot it out then film, basic but effectiveMay 9, 2019 at 7:00 pm #67606SpoonParticipant
I tend to like this better. Nothing wrong with John Madden whiteboard style but if you aren’t used to descerning information in that manner things tend to get muttled and lost. I get the feeling you are trying to feel out how to go about the DVD project. Great video as well as your last. Much appreciated.May 9, 2019 at 8:01 pm #67608GreenTipParticipantMay 9, 2019 at 8:23 pm #67609SpoonParticipant
Just a thought. It might be advantageous to color associated pairs in really bright colors to better help visualize how pairs interact in a team/squad environment.May 10, 2019 at 8:26 am #67612veritas556Participant
This I think is a real breakthrough. The use of the soldiers is not only differentiating from what others may be doing but easier to understand – seeing that 3D birds eye view perspective. Use them for CQB demos too – some simple mini cardboard “walls”, showing angles, team movements, etc.
As a funny aside, I had built this play bunker for my kid when he played with Gi Joes – can’t even give the thing away now as every kid is glued to a screen. Shame I have to cut it up and trash it.May 10, 2019 at 9:09 am #67614HessianParticipant
Its a good upgrade to your white board videos with visual clarity (upgraded camera) and adding the figures.May 10, 2019 at 1:18 pm #67615RobertParticipant
That’s was pretty damn good.
Your camera work is great and watching it full screen on a larger monitor it looked super professional.

I will die of happiness if you use 80s vintage GI Joe action figures on the next one.
