2014 is of to a good start, first of all we had Krieg and now we can proudly announce our involvement with Død Snø 2: Red VS Dead!
If the first is anything to go by, the second will be insane! Having already premiered at the Sundance Film Festival we can now show our "behind the scenes” photo thanks to Linn on the Død Snø set
So here’s a couple of pictures to get you in the mood!
We supplied a lot of the insignia and uniforms for the zombies this time around including Panzer uniform, Field grey uniforms and even our brand new leather Panzer wraps which have been given a good going over by the Død SnøCostume Department! Just click on the zombie for our new wraps!
KRIEG - (In Progress)
An Independent short film by Jeff Fry
Spring 1945, as the Russians successfully advance from the East, Allied Bomber Command embraces the severe blitz of German cities, causing confusion in civilian evacuation and hampering the movement of German reinforcements from the West.
With their "eyes on the ground," the Resistance is tasked with transmitting the most current coordinates of the vacating troops and supplies.A Kampfgruppe of elite SS remain behind to root out the spies and protect their homeland. The attacks are devastating to their morale. Untersturmführer Winter, a Waffen-SS officer, torn between duty and desertion, risks all to protect those who can no longer defend themselves.
We were fortunate enough to be asked by Jeff if we were willing to help back KRIEG with uniforms, insignia and medal to which we were only too happy to!
Judging by the pictures they’ve done it justice, Jeff and his crew have made the uniforms up brilliantly and their actors really look the part, just look at Heiko Obermöller in the pictures below.
We don’t know about you but we can’t wait to see this, the pictures look great! Just check out their links below.
Iron Sky (2011)
Most recently we continue to be a major supplier to the highly anticipated forthcoming Iron Sky, brought to you by Blind Spot Pictures. Iron Sky is a sci-fi movie that takes place in the year 2018, when the Nazis, who fled the Earth to the dark side of the Moon in 1945, return to claim the Earth. Pictured below is a teaser shot of Costume Designer Jake sporting some of our kit. This movie is drawing a huge amount of interest worldwide and we for one can't wait to see it. Be sure to check out the official movie site: Iron Sky
Inglourious Basterds (2009)
Quentin Tarantino's 2009 multiple award winning box office smash "Inglourious Basterds" follows the fictional story of First Lieutenant Aldo Raine (played by Brad Pitt) as he leads his team of Jewish Allied soldiers on a mission to assassinate the Nazi Party Leadership. The film earned over 320 billion dollars in cinemas worldwide, making it Tarantino's highest-grossing film to date, and received rave reviews from critics.
Despite claims made by some other sellers, all the uniforms for the main actors came from a Polish company. However, Epic Militaria were a significant supplier to the film, providing a large amount of the insignia for the supporting cast. We were lucky enough to visit the film studios and whilst for obvious reasons no-one outside the cast and crew were allowed on set, we did get the chance to meet some of the folk behind the scenes and came away with a few juicy snaps of the costume department, including some of our own kit. Our boss, Julian, managed to get up close and personal with the uniform worn by Christoph Waltz, who won several prestigious awards for his performance as Austrian SS Officer, Standartenführer Hans Landa.
Hollywood blockbusters aside, we have also been called upon to provide uniforms, equipment and insignia for several other productions. Here are some shots of our kit in action in a recent production by Sunfilms, an Italian company:
Another recent production we supported was the saucy "The She Wolves of Doktor Schlock", not military but they sent us some great pictures and with their kind permission we have one to show you. No, we only supplied the hats, not the leather, rubber, whips....
