Hi guys! Thanks for the warm welcome and thanks for watching the movie! Glad you guys enjoyed it. It was a big hit over at subsim, but I just hadn't found this forum until yesterday. Anyway, thanks again for taking the time to watch and comment. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I thoroughly enjoyed this, but I just want to point out one small thing. Call it a nitpick, as it really is a small matter, but when the crew mentions depth, the depth gauge doesn't correspond; same thing with the surface attack, the gauge is reading about 40 metres when Werner asks to come up top. Yeah, I know, small stuff. Doesn't ruin it for me; I'm sending this one to my buddies.

haha yea I know, I spent a long time piecing it together and realized that towards the end but really didn't want to refilm those scenes. You might also notice that the crew members change from some scenes when they really shouldn't have. That was all the result of many filming sessions in which I made a mistake by not using the right crew members at certain stations to keep uniformity if you will. That along with the depth gauges reading incorrect are the 2 things that bug me most about it after finishing it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

One other thing I messed up on is the credits at the end.. I called it a Hollywood movie which was pointed out to me many times by several Germans who didn't much like that I messed that up. Apparently it was a Bavaria Studio Production (misspelled I'm sure). Anyway, lesson learned. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks again for watching!

Thanks for sharing your hard work. I've just watched your film and really enjoyed it - especially the depth charge attack sequences. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Now I can't decide whether to watch my Das Boot DVD or play SH3!

Fantastic movie http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I really loved the first depth charge attack by the destroyer, especially when the periscope suddenly caught the bow of the destroyer coming straght at it..not to mention the actual depth charges and editing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

And the convoy attack and subsequent depth charge attack? Very atmospheric http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

A great movie and an excellent advertisment for the game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I was thinking the same thing. As I was watching it I was itching to play the game. Now I am sitting here typing in this forum when I should be working on an address I have to deliver tomorrow afternoon.
