The Emancipation Proclamation Film is the emotional result of the unique partnership between The Henry Ford and the National Archives (Washington, DC). The Henry Ford was granted the unique privilege of displaying the actual Emancipation Proclamation document (Abraham Lincoln) for 36-hours. As the Emancipation Proclamation Film reveals, nearly 22,000 people peacefully waited in line for up to 8-hours to see this venerable piece of American history. The Emancipation Proclamation Film expresses the impact of Lincoln's Proclamation, as well as the emotional affect that this event had on so many people.

The Emancipation Proclamation Film was produced by MotionPossible (http://www.motionpossible.com). All footage was captured with our RED ONE Digital Cinema camera. Our crew consisted of: Bradley M. Egen (Director/Writer/Editor), Henry B. Joy, IV (Director of Photography), Justin Browne (Steadicam Operator) and Matt Lamphere (Audio/2nd Camera).

Many thanks to our good friends at The Henry Ford for giving us the amazing opportunity to experience the event and produce the Emancipation Proclamation Film with you.
