I'm starting another wargaming movie project like my previous Made-For-YouTube
shows. The Historical Miniature Gaming Society-Eastern
Chapter (HMGS-E) is interested in developing some short programs to advertise their Historicon 09
convention this coming July.
The plan is to make as many shows as I can before the convention date. Each movie will be divided into 4-5 episodes of about 2-3 minutes each. They'll be posted about every 2-4 weeks on YouTube
The program I'm currently working on, Mayhem in Makassar Strait
, is a World War II-Naval Pacific movie. It's based on the Battle of Balikpapan, which was fought on 24 January 1942. I played it out as a solitaire mini-campaign and finished filming a couple of weeks ago. Now comes the long process of adding the special effects--primarily painting some graphic images on each picture and adding music or sound effects.
Here's a link to the historical battle:
So for now, my WWII Mediterranean Naval Campaign will be in hiatus for several months.
