REASONABLY-PRICED, AWARD-WINNING HISTORICAL RECREATION FOOTAGE IS THEIR MISSION
RICHMOND, VA â€” 2010 has started as another busy year for stock supplier Re-enactment Stock Footage.com. Theyâ€™ve added another 50 hours of exclusive HD, royalty-free historical recreation footage to the library. This Includes a large scale American Revolution battle event, and footage from three massive Civil War re-enactments, including the recent Battle of Gettysburg anniversary, which combined, featured more than 20,000 re-enactors, 500 horses and 100 cannon!
This companyâ€™s exclusive footage is of new High-Definition & Standard-Definition historical re-enactments, covering events from 1607 Jamestown to the Vietnam War, not the usual scratchy antique footage that has been available for decades. National Geographic Channelâ€™s recent special â€œLincoln: American Mastermindâ€? seamlessly integrated a collection of Re-enactment Stock Footageâ€™s HD Civil War combat clips into the narrative with stunning results.
â€œThere is no other exclusive repository of newly-shot historical re-enactment footage available anywhere else for use in film, television and documentaries, and this year has illustrated that the need can only grow as budgets are trimmed,â€? says footage creator and manager Kevin R. Hershberger. â€œProducers at varied budget levels, creating historical films and documentaries can find one-of-a-kind footage here, and licensing several seconds or several minutes is faster and less expensive than shooting it themselves,â€? added Hershberger.
Recent client Susan Sherwood, President of eâ€™lan Media, LLC, adds, â€œAs someone who has produced documentaries and programs for thirty years, I am not easily impressed. But the work Re-enactment Stock Footage did for me on my latest project, â€œWomen in the Militaryâ€?, far exceeded my greatest expectations! Your re-enactments of Revolutionary and Civil War battles were exceptional. A producerâ€™s dream!â€?
Every second of the footage the organization manages has been shot at large-scale re-enactments or staged as authentic, highly detailed recreations of historical events. He is also proud of the â€œyou-are-thereâ€? quality of the footage, where cameras have been imbedded in the action and events along with the re-enactors and special combat effects.
New for 2010 is more World War One footage, an exclusive collection of early 18th century â€œPirateâ€? re-enactment footage and coverage of the epic 195th anniversary re-enactment of the Battle of Waterloo in Belgium.
If this doesnâ€™t cover your needs, Re-enactment Stock Footage can also fill special orders to shoot the re-enactment and time-period of your choice.
A sample reel showcasing nearly four-hundred years of footage is available through the website home page.
