Welcome to Wide Awake Films' online store!
Wide Awake Films specializes in high-quality, historically-accurate documentaries.
Since 1991, our award-winning production team has traveled across the United States
filming large-scale re-enactments and producing original, award-winning Civil War
documentaries. Wide Awake Films boasts some of the most technically and creatively
skilled videographers, editors, writers and creative professionals in the country.
Blending our historical foundation with a seasoned grasp of technology, we craft
each film with precision and vivid realism. We strive to create visually compelling
stories of the past and to capture the spirit of each battle. We've built a network
of experts–historians, preservationists, and re-enactors–whose input and support are
paramount to our success.
Our projects have appeared on the History Channel, PBS, CBS, TNT, A&E, and the
National Geographic Channel, among others. We've produced museum interpretive
films for Wilson's Creek National Battlefield, The Jesse James Farm, and Perryville
State Historic Site.
Wide Awake Films actively supports Civil War battlefield land preservation by
donating a portion of our proceeds to preservation efforts.
