GAMES BROUGHT TO LIFE ON CELLULOID

Integral to implementing SATR is having great games to play with the gaming guns. That’s why Battlefield Sports has brought their Games Handbook to life on celluloid...

Question: What do the X-men spin-off “Wolverine,” Steven Spielberg’s mini-series “Pacific” and Battlefield Sports’ Live-Play movies have in common?

Answer: the production crew.

Yes that’s right. Many of the same film crew who worked on both the X-men prequel and the HBO series squeezed into their busy schedule time to shoot our Live-Play movies.

We call our Live-Plays weapons of mass exhilaration. Each Live-Play is a script for a scenario, which includes mission objectives, descriptions of scenes, maps, and director’s notes for props (such as gaming guns). Until now, these Live-Plays were only available in written format.

Now, in true cinematic style, the Live-Play mini-movies used authentic, vintage, uniforms, webbing, and props. The cast and crew of 20 people went on location to Battlefield LIVE’s Ipswich Depot to re-create scenes from modern day recruit training scenarios, historic re-enactments from Vietnam and WW2, as well as live action role play introductions.

The lead actor and extras for each mini-movie were cast for authenticity. For example for the Japanese briefing for the Kokoda Track mission, a Japanese man, in full WW2 uniform was cast.

The Live-Play movies are divided into two categories: basic plays and special features. The basic Live-Plays are those beginner’s games that are played in many a battlefield, namely:

Death Match

Capture the Base

VIP Escort (Battle, Ambush, Pursuit versions)

Capture & Hold and

Sniper.

The Live-Play special features cover a broad variety of war genres, namely:

4 Strong Points

Tet Offensive

Kokoda Track

Heydte’s Escape (see below)

Rescue the General

Battle of Nui Le

Citadel Hue

Operation Black Box

Operation Bribie

Stop the Assassins

34 Alpha, and

the multi-part Border Command.


Each mini-movie is available for purchase (video clip and game mechanics) individually or you can order the entire series at a set.

SATR simulates a wide range of weapons for the period of WW1 to modern warfare. These go hand-in-hard with the Live-Play script. While the guns and inflatables are cool props, the key to a really immersive experience is the Live-Plays.

With our new mini-movie production, the stage is set, the battle lines are drawn; time to experience the Battlefield LIVE.
