Inside the Caliphate – 8

 

After some nine months AlHayat release the eighth in the series “Inside the Caliphate” with some interesting details in the sixteen minutes of old battle videos cobbled together with some off the shelf animations and transitions.

The basic story-board is set up with Telegraph chat messages interspersed with narrated decrees glorifying terror events such as the Pulse NightClub event and strangely a few clips from the Boston Marathon bombing, together with battle fire fights accompanied with the ubiquitous chant like atonal music vibrating in background.  (Inside the Caliphate 7

Flames of War – Three

Fifty five minute video Al Hayat released as a part three to the Flames Of War series. The English narration with its stylised nuances explains the history up to the present time of Islamic State.

The video with its slow motion RPG rocket firing is padded together with battle vision from previous releases, (for example the image below is seen in part three) together with production voice over audio and some off the shelf fire transitions add to the impact which the narrative attempts to impose.

The video ends with men digging a trench as English translations run over the lower third, the scene ends with their execution.
