Civil War Trust – Gettysburg
For more than 10 years, our projects have helped to support Civil War Trust’s efforts to preserve battlefield land. Our years of collaborative partnership have yielded many historical projects, most recently including a series of animated interactive battle maps of historic Civil War battles – Shiloh, Antietam, Vicksburg, and Gettysburg.
For Gettysburg, we decided to to something a little different:
Using the Red Epic camera, our amazing cast of local Civil War reenactors, a young, experience-hungry crew, a 20′ green-screen and a 9 cans of bug spray, we filmed for a few days to get the live-action and green screen composite shots necessary to visualize certain parts of the battle. The Gettysburg Animated Map was launched on July 1, 2013, on the battle’s 150th anniversary.
