The best shots from Corridor Digital's masterful Modern Warfare movie
If you're a die-hard Modern Warfare fan, you've surely seen [[artnid:342377|'Frozen Crossing'|Live-action Modern Warfare-inspired video made for only $210]] by now -- the MW2-inspired live-action short that was made for just US$210. (Pretty impressive, eh?)
In honour of Corridor Digital's sterling work, we've assembled a slideshow of the most cinematic and creative shots in the movie: something that a quick viewing on YouTube fails to convey. As you can see, the cinematography puts many Hollywood efforts to shame. Imagine what these boys could do with a multi-million dollar budget! Somebody get the Weinsteins on the phone, stat...
The short starts off with this flashy intro: an obvious homage to Modern Warfare's iconic mission briefs.
The locations are breathtaking, and definitely help bolster the production's meagre budget.
The film follows the exploits of two Task Force 141 operatives, code-named Specter and Dust. Specter's skull-like mask is clearly riffing on Ghost from Modern Warfare 2.
Our heroes snare an enemy in their sights...
Ker-POW! The subtle CGI effects are pretty top-notch.
Ghost, er, we mean Specter, admires a crack shot.
Apparently, the short was filmed at -20 degrees Fahrenheit (about -29 degree Centigrade) -- no need to add fake CGI breath, then!
"Ah, this is the life: just chillin' with my homie in the snow..."
"...I hope there are no snipers lurking about, looking to blow our heads off or anything. That would really suck."
Presumably, the authentic-looking weapons were not part of the alleged $210 budget. Those props look damn expensive.
Some of the camera angles are quite inspired.
Specter and Dust strike a pose. Yesterday.
This is probably our favourite shot in the film. The framing is sublime.
The special effects, such as blood and muzzle flare, are better than some low-budget action films.
