The Reenactors is an hour-long documentary that seeks to explore the background and motives of modern day Civil War living historians.
Presently, there are over 50,000 individuals who revisit the battlefields of the Civil War. They arrive in campers and by plane, with college buddies or family members. They attempt to recreate the world of the American Civil War by dressing, living, and fighting the way Americans did between 1861 and 1865. They are referred to as reenactors or living historians. They are individuals who strive to teach others by portraying life during the Civil War as accurately as possibly, and to effectively create a living history.
In this documentary, we will go beyond the reenactments to learn about the true character and soul that drives these men. The Reenactors will focus on five diverse living historians and enter their lives in the days leading up to the 150th anniversary of the battle of 1st Manassas. The result will be a character-driven documentary that creates a personal, intimate look into the world of reenacting.
While our entire budget calls for $8,000, we have decided to ask for help to raise $1,500 to cover the required insurance to shoot at location in Manassas, VA for the 150th Anniversary of First Manassas/ Bull Run.
