Picture of
See how to use just three people to create a full war scene complete with explosions within four days.

For the shooting anyway. Still not clear how long this took to assemble in post.

Presto Videoworks 6 also would work to do this all, except for the green screen part, that's where it has a little trouble.

Many. Individual images: Gimp, Photoshop 2d Effects (Some 3d) - After Effects Complete 3d (ex. the boat) - Maya Editing - Premiere, iMovie, anything but windows movie maker Total cost (including a nice-ass computer to run it): Couple G's. That's $2 - 5,000. AcademicSuperstore.com has amazing prices on software. Oh, and Maya is what, $1,000/year for a license? It's not a cheap business :P.

I know final cut pro has alot of this stuff in it but most people can't use it to save themselves, you could 99% in Ulead videostudio 9.0 (it has alot of unused potential hidden in sub menus) and Imovie HD is an impressive program for macs, more so because it's free.

Hmm we did some stuff like this when my friend asked for help making a film, we also used some screening tricks to make a pickup truck into a tank that I jumped on to, killed the driver and stole the tank, If I see him then I'll ask for the video files..
