I actually have some left over cut off from a Cosco hybrid UQ project and I was thinking about doing the same thing.

I've got some video coming out soon. I've got a bunch of editing to do from the Texas November Hang first.

Great, looking forward to it. On an unrelated note, can I ask what you use for editing? I'm looking for a simple windows 10 editing tool

I using an editor designed for Cheap Old Farts: Magix Video Easy HD. I've tried a fancier free editor called Hit Film, but I can't see all that's going on in the small video panels it uses. I'm sure professional videographers look down their noses at such plebian software, but it works for me---straightforward, no frills, easy to use. Pasting in audio is a bit of an art, but I do get voice overs, etc., done when I need them. Its also got some good effects.

I'm starting another channel for WW1/Punitive Expedition re-enactors doing some DIY guides and shooting "Army Training Films" for the period. The Army didn't avail itself of the new technology for that purpose, but I'll be doing them to look as they might have if they had. I'm testing effects on them now and working with a local museum to shoot the films. This is a test of layering some of the effects. I have to shoot, convert to Black and White, finish that one, then run the finished film through a couple of cycles of adding sepia tone, scratches, and variable speeds to make it look as if it was made a hundred years ago. The shots with the water are place holders and will be filled in later with the reenactor demonstrating each instruction:

Well, its definetly not as popular as Civil War and WW2, but they've been doing two big provate battles up in PA each year since about 1983, an annual public battle in Rockford, IL for a couple of years, and a small public events all over the country. With the latest and greatest video game being set in WW1 and the Centennial for US participation in the war coming in April, some folks expect a bit of an expansion. There's even an air arm.

I have no illusions about getting vast numbers of hits on the channel. I studied that war for about 10 years back in the '90s and at one time had the largest collection of US WW1 uniforms in TX. I'm looking to help folks with thier impressions and interpretations, especially for public events aimed at educating the public.

That is extremely interesting. Once upon a time, I was part of a WW2 reenacting group but to be totally honest, I was just into the machine guns (as an impressionable high school kid). I have always had a fascination with Great War aviation though.

I used to be a Living History Volunteer for Texas Parks and Wildlife at the Admiral Nimitz Museum and Battleship TEXAS (among others). Got to shoot cool WW2 machine guns, even a flame thrower :D .

I've got a friend who owns a vintage flying museum about 2 hours down the interstate from me. I'll be doing so videos out there:
