The Confederate Pictures Flag represents the hope that the  original and Jeffersonian Conservative 'united states' of North America will once again take its rightful place among the nations of the world, and eschew all Socialism, and empire, forever more... That is the dream. To have all (fifty) states once again under the original (Anti-Federalist and Libertarian) form of government given us by Thomas Jefferson. We are 'the Party of Mr. Jefferson'.

         

Benjamin Franklin exposes Mr. Lincoln and his newly-formed "Liberal" sectional party for what they truly were...

  "... as all history informs us, there has been in every State & Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the peoples money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever ..."  - Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) US Founding Father - Source: before the Constitutional Convention, (June 2, 1787)

 

 

Confederate Pictures Film Studios is the name of a collection of film studio imprints by George Roland Wills. The word 'Confederate' in this context means different film studios within a single production house; as true confederates, or partners, of each other.  


To date, the following film studio imprints are associated with Confederate Pictures Film Studios; Full Eclipse Productions ( which handles documentaries ), Y Productions and Barracuda Productions ( for the Bedford Area family YMCA ), Oceans 10 Productions (which handles films made in the state of Florida), and Confederate Pictures Reenactment Films ( which handles the Civil War videos and the reenactments associated with that time period ). We also host Freedom Films, movies done for the National Park Service, also available on our Amazon.com page. 

Click on any of the underlined green links above to access those web pages for the various film studio imprints... (The rest will be underlined as those pages are built).



Other imprints may be forthcoming. 

The Confederate Pictures Reenactment Films imprint is also dedicated to preserving the true history of the American Civil War, and to making sure that great people and events from that time period are neither misrepresented, nor forgotten. We are strictly an historical concern, and do not have any other function save in the preservation of history. We are not affiliated with any other groups save those which are also strictly historical in nature, and in purpose.

George Roland Wills is pleased to work with living historians and re-enactors from all fifty states, and Canada, in the making of his films.

George's films are now available for sale at Amazon.com.

Confederate Pictures Reenactment Films


Confederate Pictures Reenactment Films was started as a result of re-enactors on both sides of the Civil War wanting to acquire the mostly unedited 'dailies' or 'rushes' from our visits to the battlefields. We would go as spectators to these events to get stock battle footage for our Civil War documentaries and motion pictures under our original name, Full Eclipse productions.  (Our company was formed one evening on my birthday, November 8, 2003, during a total lunar eclipse. This was seven days after I got the ghost photograph for PORTRAIT OF A PLANTATION).

So, we decided to make these re-enactors an offer neither of us could refuse. In exchange for them performing some play-acting in our films, and giving us an unprecedented outsider's chance to actually put on a uniform (either side; we have worn both Federal and Confederate uniforms in order to get the shots we wanted... even though our sympathies lie entirely with the South, politically!)...  we would go on the field during a fight (wielding a camera instead of a musket) and get some fantastic shots we would otherwise never have gotten... in exchange for this, we would make up some DVDs for these various units under the name Confederate Pictures Reenactment Films. 

This is not a service that the events, themselves, generally provide the reenactors... and even when they do a video, it is always more of an advertisement for the event, as an art form, instead of a living scrapbook for the re-enactors to relive their personal history.  

That was nearly fifty films ago. 'Confederate Pictures' became our abbreviated title, and came to represent all of our film-making concerns. 

Confederate Pictures has now formed Confederate Pictures Film Studios, and has added a number of film-making imprints, 'as sovereign parties to a compact of union', with the other film-making entities.  Confederate Pictures Film Studios is the umbrella term for all of our film studio imprints, including Confederate Pictures Reenactment Films, and is linked to The Gallery513 School of Art & Portraiture Institute. This entity, or institute, is the true umbrella organization for everything that George Roland Wills produces...
