Child describes the Gettysburg Battlecast:
Nothing like the Gettysburg Battlecast (Pickett’s Charge Live) has ever been done before. I even had to come up with the name “Battlecast” and I get tired of seeing it always highlighted in my spell check. The main reenactment field is perhaps more than 1000 meters across. It is a massive area to cover and it has been a challenge in the technical planning. People wouldn’t stand for watching all wide shots of the battle so we have several wireless cameras embedded with the troops. Because of the numbers of reenactors involved it will be a visual spectacle like many people have never seen before – even people who have attended reenactments. It should send chills down the viewer’s spines, as they will recognize they are watching a live battle unfold very much like it did 150 years ago. People toss around the word “epic” all too frequently but this live battlecast will be the definition of epic.
