hi
the film was shot in anamorphic with panavision lens

the film shows the real battlefields of the french army history but now.
those locations were heavy for their respective history.
Gergovie is in France battle between gaulois and cesar's army 2000 years ago
Verdun : WW1
Plages du débarquement : WW2 (DDay beach)
Austerlitz : Napoleon against the white russian army (the tsar army, not the drink!)
Sarajevo : yougoslavia's war
Afghanistan : well you know this one.

a 12 days shoot

Looks beautiful, nice work! Love the anamorphic lens work. What film is the music from? It sounds very familiar - I want to say "A History of Violence" but I'm not sure.

thanks for the comments, glad you enjoyed

the helicopter system is a continantal side mount with 2 KS12 gyros in addition
the chopper was a super puma from french army

the music was composed in LA it's from anthony zimmer "the thin red line" malik's film
