I'm frankly blown away by the preview of this film.

Basically, Peter Jackson hired researchers to locate all the WWI film footage they could. Of course at the time, it was all silent, grainy, black and white film. Because alot of the cameras were hand cranked, the frames per second shot were variable and poor quality.

They basically were able to computer and hand process this old footage into high definition, colorized film. Then, he hired professional forensic lip readers to determine what the soldiers were saying and had voice actors fill in the missing voices. He also tracked down as much of post war interviews as he could of original soldiers.

With that... he made a documentary bringing to life the soldiers of the Great War. The result is just stunning and amazing.

Check out the trailer:

That’s a definite must see for me. Peter Jackson is a superb director and this movie will no doubt be up to his meticulous standard.

Was able to see the documentary. Very impressive. All the originally planned shows were sold out (1 and 4 pm). Several of the theaters added extra showings and they sold out also.

The last 30 minutes was what they had to do to make the movie. One of the comments I found interesting is the men at that time had seen movies in theaters but had not seen motion picture cameras. When a camera was set-up, it would capture their attention and they would stare. Also, camera pictures at that time required one to remain motionless for up to 10 seconds.

The link below has more details.
