A Good Filming Weekend

ShutteRelease is pleased to announce that the filming at the House in the Horseshoe went well in spite of the inclement weather. We want to thank the folks from Guilford Militia, 84th Highland Regiment, and Johnston County Militia who permitted us to film them and who participated in our reenactment footage.

Also, ShutteRelease would like to thank the Old Salem Museum and Gardens for permission to film onsite and for casting folks for our “Life in Old Hillsborough” segment. Filming went off without a hitch this morning under beautiful Carolina Blue skies.

The cast was supplemented by Ted Henson, a member of our advisory board and previous president of the Alamance Battleground Friends. Ted plays the part of Rednap Howell, one of the principal leaders of the Regulator movement. Filming covered Regulator meetings and the Hillsborough Courthouse riot of October 1770.
