Hello from Washington,
I got back from Iraq last year in Nov. I spent the last few months making a video to give to my platoon chock full of good music and excitement. Everybody raved about it. (of course, I'm not a pro and they're friends of mine But anyway...I think it might make a decent documentary of sorts. Add a scripted voice over and a few interviews. A lot of the footage is on missions. We hunted IED's so I have a lot of explosions, a couple firefights. Most of the footage is from inside the vehicle. Not a lot up close stuff. Some of the footage is of us back on the base, talking, goofing around, stuff like that. I shot it all with a JVC Everio camcorder with a 30 gig HDD. I had a 6 hr. battery so that's how I caught some IED's going off. I made a little stand for it in the windscreen so some of it is a little shaky.
So what I'm trying to get at...I'd like to sell it. But i don't know where or how to start. I'd like the advise of some of you seasoned vets. I have it all on about 25 DVD's packed as full as I could get them. All in MPEG-2 format.
Also, maybe some of you will remember me. I posted around April last year about Iraq footage and if you would like to see a video.
