The [Untitled] War
This was an amazing battle, one of my favorite of all times. The fighting was pretty ferocious and the final movie includes many different rounds. What strikes me the most, several years later, is how brightly colored some of our guns were compared to our camo and the surrounding woods. Pretty hilarious. Equally hilarious is the faked tree sniping scene. I remember we were joking around in between battle rounds about having a sniping scene in the movie and we decided to do this one. Everything else is footage from the actual battle. The final scene is probably my favorite of any waterwar video. – Benjamin Hemingway

Soakfest ’04
This was shot in the woods behind the Capones house. There’s lot’s of great terrain to fight on there, creeks, major hills, ditches, gullies, and even the occasional pile of old tires! This is my favorite of all of our battles. It’s actually several battles on one day, and we cut hours and hours of footage down to around 4 minutes for this video. The last part is fricken hilarious. I crack myself up watching it every time. Matt told me John was asleep on the deck, and well… I just couldn’t resist. Watch for the dog! That’s the best part. -Benjamin Hemingway

Urban Warfare (incomplete)
This was shot in a neighborhood under developement. Luckily it was warm for the last day of the year, about 70F, so we had a good battle. Unfortunately the camera batteries died a little ways through the battle. There is more footage, but it wasn’t worth putting on the video, these are the best action scenes. I think what we have turned out really really good. It’s not every day that you have a watergun fight in a two story house! – Benjamin Hemingway

Soakfest ’03
This was shot on or around January 1st, 2003, and is the project we put the most effort into. This was shot in and around the remains of some sort of mechanics shop (the close to end shots) and in and around a delapidated barn. The barn, thanks to hurricane Isabel, is no longer standing, but it was a blast to film in that. We put in about a whole afternoon filming and aprox. another five hours choosing the best shots, editing, tweaking etc. The main goal was to get it done before M4 left for NC the next morning. We were very very proud of this end product, especially because of the fact that it correlates so well with the soundtrack. – Mathew Capone
