Reenactment Stock Footage, a stock footage library populated exclusively with historical re-enactment and recreation footage, announced a number of upgraded and expanded collections of intense and cinematic HD Civil War stock footage, just in time for the 150th anniversary of this pivotal time in history. All of this footage is comprised of newly shot HD recreations with accurate costumes, special effects and period actors. Some of these battles include more than 15,000 authentic re-enactors, cannons and hundreds of cavalry.
Documentary filmmakers, educators, independent producers or anyone with an interest in military video footage will be able to browse, license and use the footage.
In addition to the new Civil War collections, hours of new HD footage have also been added that portray the major events leading up to the American Revolution, including the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s midnight ride, Lexington Green and the Battle of Concord.
Reenactment Stock Footage’s collection spans American and world-wide subjects ranging from 1607 Jamestown to the Vietnam War.
“Reenactment Stock Footage places the greatest events and some of the most important moments of history within reach for anyone at almost any budget,” said Kevin Hershberger, historian, filmmaker and owner of Reenactment Stock Footage. “Everything you need to tell your story is at your fingertips.”
Throughout 2013, the organization plans to add more than 100 hours of new footage of the Civil War, the American Revolution, World War One and the Vietnam War as well as events detailing the history of women in American society to its library.
“Our expansive library ensures that clients can rely on us time and again for a diverse selection of both military and civilian historical content,” said Hershberger. “Our clients range from broadcast networks like History, Discovery, Smithsonian and National Geographic to projects for PBS, national commercial spots as well as independent feature films and documentaries.”
