Enjoy my video of a pyramid built by one of Napoleon's generals in 1804.
It is the first time I filmed in D-cinelike and attempted to get a good color in Adobe premiere elements (which doesn't seem to handle LUT's). I have to say I am quite happy with the sharpness of the footage and the quality in all the foliage... it's not super everywhere, but at least most of the shots are quite detailed!

I would appreciate any comments and/or likes, also on youtube!

Thanks guys!

Very interesting ! Great job ! Love those kind of subject !
Yeah, me too! I love these kind of historic landmarks or features... they make you aware of the history you're walking on every day... Especially in the village I live in, there are houses there from the 1600s... awe inspiring when you think about it!

You also caught some of the constant restoration work, you can see where one side has slumped quite badly.
Considering it is only earth it is surprising it hasn't already become a more natural-looking small hill.

True, you can clearly see where the restauration was done and where it is still ongoing. If I understand correctly, restauration will be an ongoing process.

In addtition, the original wooden obelisk was slumped over a bit and later replaced by a brick one. I didn’t know it at the time of filming, but the current obelisk is also crooked and needs some fixation to keep it for future generations. It confused me at first when I was editing the footage, as I couldn’t get the horizon and the tower straight! :p:p

Sure ! Here it is !


Just subbed to your channel also !
Nice one! I love how you film the ruins in detail first, and then choose ever larger shots to place it in its surroundings. The creek leading up to the castle is intriguing... you instantly get the feeling how it must have looked like hundreds of years ago... instantly subscribed! :)

That sounds quite special, looking forward to your film! It is like some others have mentioned: so cool that due to the movies that people make, you get to see and learn about entirely different parts of the world, and I’m loving it! What a great hobby we have! :)
