To commemorate the August 1864 meeting at the White House between Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, Proofmark Cinema will be shooting a one-man-theatre version of the meeting, hopefully in August of this year. The resultant DVD will be used, hopefully, to persuade the White House to invite James Roberts, the actor, to do it on the 150th anniversary of the event. See the Douglass & Lincoln blog for details.

Come the spring of 2011, Proofmark Cinema will be traveling to Austin, Texas to shoot Zone of Fire, a historical documentary video based on Bat Masterson's memoir Gunfighters of the Western Frontier. Volunteers are sought to play townies and cowboys in the background; lunch and water will be provided, along with a copy of the DVD; glory is provided free, but we'll be sharing in any eventual (if the History Channel can be interested in it) profits on a co-op basis.

This movie was shot entirely on authentic period locations, entirely in Philadelphia, entirely in one day. All clothing, props, and firearms were originals or period-authentic reproductions. Shot in HD using a Sony camera, edited on Apple Macintosh computers using iMovie.
"Beautifully shot, great atmosphere, striking in its austerity."
