This past year, Veteran Arms LLC was pleased to have the opportunity to supply numerous film productions with historical arms, uniforms, equipment, and other services.
Some of the exciting projects that we worked on included the film entitled, Washington’s Armor. This production, set in the 1750’s, is about young George Washington’s military adventures during the run-up to and beginning of the French & Indian War. Veteran Arms supplied over 150 muskets and pistols, 200 complete uniforms and accoutrements sets, and on-set armorer services for the show. It is due to premier on President’s Day.
Also set in the mid-1700’s, Veteran Arms supplied guns, equipment, uniform items, props, and set dressing for the film The Battle of Bushy Run. Among other items, Veteran Arms supplied an entire military camp of 70+ tents, complete with marquee and officers tents, camp hardware and furniture, and complete cook and mess sets.
Although a little outside of our usual sphere of work, Veteran Arms provided wardrobe for 40 extras portraying ISIS terrorist fighters for the upcoming action flick Warhorse One by Director Will Kaufman.
Cadets and officers in the upcoming film The Pale Blue Eye will be sporting swords and uniform accessories from Veteran Arms. West Point in the 1830’s is the setting for the feature, which stars Christian Bale and Robert Duvall.
Several other productions are worth mentioning including Andrew Huggin’s, The Hornet’s Nest set in the Revolutionary War, and Wilderness Road a film set in the 1790’s along the Natchez Trace, both still in production.
Right now, we are in talks with several shows that are in pre-production, and we are looking forward to what the new year brings.
Of course, if you are working on a film or television production and are looking for historical guns, uniforms, equipment, props, consulting, or other services, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information on how we can assist.
