This site is dedicated to the men and women of the military both past and present. Photos and video are from the re-enacting community. I'm currently in the process of creating a documentary film about reenacting. This project is made possible by an Ella Fountain Pratt Emerging Artists Grant from the Durham Arts Council with support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources

Last night I saw this film "The Way We Get By" for the second time. The story revolves around three "greeters" old folks (some vets) that go to the Bangor Maine airport to greet and welcome troops home from overseas duty.

On veteran's day, it'll be shown on PBS's program entitled P.O.V. Put this on your calendar! Its free so any one can watch it ... and its really, really, good!

Last night I got to meet the filmmakers and enjoyed speaking with them very much. This is one of those films (like mine will be) that got made because these two filmmakers simply had a passion for the story. They spent three years working on it. Additionally, they did most of it *without* funding and in their spare time when they weren't working at their full-time jobs.
Take the time and watch it this veterans day. Thank me later.

New Disguise Camera - Argus C3

I just pulled the prototype for the Argus Disguise Camera out of its mold this morning. These "Disguise cameras" will fit a variety of digital cameras.
(In fact, it should fit *all* digital point and shoot cameras).

Nobody wants to see a digital camera on a tactical that supposed to take place in 1944. You can de-farb your impression with one of these cool gadgets.

Im going to install a camera in it, and then I'll work up prices. Since its a lot smaller, it'll undoubtably be more affordable than the Mitchell that's currently available. When ready, the Argus Disguise Cam will be available for purchase from my Etsy page (see my Etsy link on this page).
