This short DVD explains the making of the WWII, 4-D film exhibit at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. "Judges said: Physically and virtually integrating multimedia technologies of various sorts, this project provides an unprecedented experience to the audience. Watching a Hollywood standard film in a 4-D cinematic theater with vibratile seats, along with other hi-tech mechanism, it is rather difficult to literally describe the astonishing enjoyment you might go through. We do believe this project has successfully created a brand new museum visiting experience. What an outstanding and amazing project! We can't wait to visit and experience this multimedia installation by ourselves. Producers said: Beyond All Boundaries, the signature cinematic experience at The National World War II Museum, was five years in the making. It was designed to attract new audiences as well as previous visitors to the Museum, and to bring World War II to life in an entirely new way: an immersive, multisensory journey through the war that changed the world. The production is site-specific and is shown exclusively at the Museum's Solomon Victory Theater. Conceived and commissioned by the Museum, with Tom Hanks as Executive Producer and Narrator, and Phil Hettema and The Hettema Group as show producers and directors, Beyond All Boundaries weaves a spectacular tapestry of this epic conflict. The words and stories of actual WWII participants are brought to life by many of today's leading actors. Viewers experience the war in first person. State-of-the-art special effects plunge viewers into the era. They feel the rumble of B-17 bombers, steam rising from the jungles of Guadalcanal, and snow falling inside the theater during the punishing Battle of the Bulge. Most of all, the audience understands as never before, the price of our precious freedom. Beyond All Boundaries has received outstanding reviews and has been largely responsible for record-setting visitation. Audience numbers have exceeded projections and, in the three months since the film's premiere, total Museum visitation is triple the same period last year. Beyond All Boundaries is powerful, authentic, inspiring and a story for all time"-- http://www.futurepull.org/?page_id=584 (as viewed on 04-18-2012)

The burning : a tale of the dark apostle by E. C Ambrose( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dark Apostle is a powerful, energetic historical fantasy series set in an alternate 14th century England: a land of poverty and opulence, prayer and plague ... witchcraft and necromancy. As a child, Elisha witnessed the burning of a witch outside of London, and saw her transformed into an angel at the moment of her death, though all around him denied this vision. He swore that the next time he might have the chance to bind an angel's wounds, he would be ready. And so he became a barber-surgeon, at the lowest ranks of the medical profession, following the only healer's path available to a peasant's son. But when the magic inside him finally awakens, he finds that keeping to that path will be even harder than he could ever imagine. In "The Burning," a 4500-word prequel story to Elisha Barber, Elisha's mother tells her tale of that first vision and its aftermath. For if Elisha insists that his vision is a true one, he risks everything she and her husband have worked for, and tempts not only the fires of hell, but perhaps another burning right there on the outskirts of town ... This DAW eOriginal includes an excerpt from Elisha Barber following the story
