Behind-The-Scenes Look: New Glock G41 Commercial

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Glock approached Atlanta-based production company Modest to produce a spot for their G41 pistol. CraterDust, Glock’s creative agency, came up with a concept involving a Special Forces team doing a takedown of a hijacked plane on the tarmac. This inspired director Matthew Pope to utilize a single real-time shot to put the viewer in the middle of the action.

A particular scene called for a shot that started on a crane 30-feet above two parked SUVs and ended 300-yards away at the moment the plane was breached. To achieve this, Pope worked with Director of Photography Matthew Rogers and Special Effects Coordinator Drew Kimball to coordinate a shot that utilized pulleys, a Movi rig, handing off a RED Epic camera from one moving vehicle to another, and half a dozen camera operators.

    Special Forces Association Revokes “Dual Survival” Star Joe Teti’s Membership

    Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

    SSD received word earlier today that the Special Forces Association has revoked the membership of Joe Teti. The star of Discovery Channel’s “Dual Survival” served in the US Marine Corps as well as in the Army National Guard’s 19th SFG(A).

    This isn’t something that is taken lightly. Revocation of membership has only happened 10 times in the Association’s history. It is our understanding that Teti’s membership was revoked pursuant to Paragraph VII.c. of the SFA’s constitution. His SFA membership cannot be reinstated.

    Mr Teti’s background has long been a point of contention. There are numerous websites that detail the inconsistencies surrounding his service record and public claims. We welcome SSD readers to provide relevant links in the comments.

    “AK vs AR”: The Musical

    Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

    Ok, so it’s not really a musical, but “AK vs AR” is a magazine. I’m not quite sure how well my favorite internet kerfuffle is going to translate unto the printed page. After all, where will you post your comments regarding your favorite platform? Who will be there to listen to you pontificate on your experience with you favored platform? Let’s face it, a magazine based on everyone’s Internet straw man doesn’t sound like much fun at all. But, there are some cool articles in this special interest publication including a head to head competition with the AK and AR conducted by some very righteous dudes.

    What’s next, “9mm vs .45?”
