"Southern Cross" Documentary Now Complete
The Southern Cross: The Story of the Confederacy’s First Battleflag, has been completed. The fifty-six minute production chronicles the history of the design and creation of a flag that became the prototype for all of the St. Andrews Cross battle flags carried by Confederate armed forces. The hand-stitched silk flag with gold painted stars was borne by the Fifth Company of the Washington Artillery of New Orleans through the Battles of Shiloh and Perryville.
The soundtrack was delivered in 5.1 surround, an option many filmmakers desire to make their program stand out. The battle scenes in Southern Cross afforded many opportunities for cannon shells to fly overhead, bullets to wiz by, and soldiers to charge through the battlefield.
