W B Yeats - An Irish Airman Foresees His Death

Recipient of the Order of 777 Studios Medal.

Nominated for Jury Award at MachinExpo2010.

Screened at Atopic - Festivel de Films Machinima - 2010

Runner up for Best Story Line/Narrative Machinima at VWBPE 2011

I have wanted to turn this poem into film ever since I saw a friend's forum signature:

A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds

But my usual flight sim, IL2, did not have World War I scenarios. Now, with the visually stunning flight sim, Rise of Flight, this finally became a possibility.

Hi Russell; I saw your film the other night as my wife had it on
facebook. I have just watched it again and it is wonderful. Congratulations on the award...you
deserve it.All of your filmwork is
excellent, and your WWII films are
especially good, capturing the essence of the era and the experience of the aircrews.
Your adaptation of Yeats is the best.
Regards...Gerry Mullen
