Battle of Mossy Creek Footage Reel

We spent the last weekend in New Market, TN, at the Battle of Mossy Creek Civil War Re-enactment. We had a great time despite the 100+ degree weather, and are very excited about some of the footage we have been able to capture for the film. To share some of our excitement, we have prepared a short video reel that highlights some of the work we have been doing.

For this shoot, we added a Canon EF 100-400mm lens to our arsenal. I would guess 75% of this video is shot with that lens, and we couldn’t be happier. It allowed us to get right up on the action while maintaining a safe and respectful distance from the re-enactors.

Our standard camera kit includes two Canon t2i cameras, two stock Canon 18-55mm lenses, and two Canon 55-250mm lenses. All of our cameras and cards are running the latest version of Magic Lantern, which is proving invaluable on this project. And all editing and post work is done in Final Cut Pro, Motion, and After Effects.

In addition to filming at historic locations and historical re-enactments, we have also been hard at work arranging and recording interviews that will help to tell the story of the birth of the Seventh-day Adventist Church during the Civil War.

We hope you enjoy this footage, and please, pass the video on to your friends and family. We want as many people as possible to hear about this project.

We also welcome any contributions to our campaign to finish the production of this film. Please visit to make your contribution.
