Robert Child, director of the film commented, "I have worked with Videosmith many times in the past ten years and their service is second to none. They really go out of their way to make sure you have the right gear and tech support on hand for the most demanding shoots."
Chris Cerasoli, General Manager of Videosmith commented, "We are honored to be part of such an historic event and are excitedly looking forward to July."
The production will feature a true cinematic look and a combination of cameras have been chosen to capture the action. The film will utilize the breathtaking new Canon C300 large sensor cinematic camera for close of shots. "Embedded cameramen, those actually in Civil War uniforms within the various battles will be shooting with the C300," Child reported.
Rounding out the camera complement will be the new Panasonic HPX 250 which records to P2 cards and shoots in true 4:2:2 color space. It's codec equals that of the Varicam. Videosmith will also be providing tech support and edit personnel to turn around video dailies on site.
