More "Aviation filmography" rather than "photography" but on the basis cameras are involved... I came across a facininating video/YouTube channel by InCamera, a film production company, who specialise in combining modern technology with traditional in-camera SFX techniques. In this video they talk about progress for a new WW2 Short Film 'A Memory Owed' and catch up with their pre-production tests and video as they explore the possibilities of combining scale pyrotechnic effects with a motion controlled miniature (in this case a superb HKM 1/32 Avro Lancaster with operating props and turrets). A particular sequence shows construction of a 1/5 scale Lanc wing and engine section which is used to reproduce / film an engine fire sequence. It goes into some depth about techniques to get things right and the importance of lighting. I understand the film will also feature the East Kirkby Lanc NX611 'Just Jane'. The yet to be released short film project: ‘A Memory Owed’ is an emotive story about loss, healing and remembrance set across 1944 and present. During the war, a young replacement Wireless Operator joins a Lancaster crew and takes off on his first operation over Germany. Fast forward 79 years to where 90 year old Stanley and his young carer, visit a museum. Their generational differences become more and more apparent until they discover a connection. Building on that connection, they go on a journey of remembrance... Enjoy...! Rich
Here's a link to hyperscale.com. A thread that contains copies of illustrations about ditching Bombers. Not sure if this inspired confidence amongst the crews but at least someone must have thought about it. http://www.network54.com/Forum/149674/message/1496324353/How+to+ditch+your+bomber I thought someone on here might enjoy seeing these.
