Cosmic America’s anticipation of “Gettysburg”
“The usual depiction of battle goes something like this – thousands of well-fed soldiers (with nice uniforms and good teeth) marching valiantly to their fate, clutching their chests when they fall, or catapulted into the air by shells exploding on the ground (as opposed to in the air, which is how things really happened).”
Resaca, GA - Our camera operator, David Torcivia, did some test footage this weekend. He also came out with some great images! Check our his Flickr for more!
Our shooters met our producer in the field at Resaca, GA today to get some test footage! They got some great videos and pictures!

Will you be watching Gettysburg?
Monday, May 30th Gettysburg by Ridley Scott will be premiering on The History Channel at 9pm. We’ve heard a lot about the inaccuracies in this movie. What about you? What are your thoughts? Will you be watching?
I know it looks gorgeous but not sure if we’ll be tuning in.
