Ahoy there! When the Battleship Texas Foundation (BTF) approached us, we knew we were in for an adventure. Their main objective was to document the historic process of restoring and relocating the 100-year-old Battleship Texas. Talk about a challenge!
As a video production company, we were tasked with creating a whole slew of deliverables for both the Battleship Texas Foundation and the engineering firm, Valcor. Our job involved capturing every step of the restoration process over the course of three years, including the ship being worked on at its original location and then moved 50 miles away. And let’s not forget about the 15-person crew we needed to capture the ship being taken out of the water! We’re happy to say we survived, and we have some pretty amazing footage to show for it.
Of course, working with a century-old ship comes with its own unique set of challenges. We had to be incredibly safety-conscious and wear hard hats, steel-toed boots, and other protective gear at all times. But it was all worth it in the end.
We’re proud to say that we’ve successfully shot and cataloged over 7 Terabytes of footage, created several update videos, and have begun work on the final 45-minute documentary that will be displayed in the museum. And our hard work has paid off – Battleship Texas Foundation loved working with us and has used every piece of content we’ve produced with great success.
Not only has this project been a success for us, but it’s also been a major win for Battleship Texas. Our work has helped them gain more of a following online, bringing more attention and donations to the foundation than ever before. We’re thrilled to have been a part of such an incredible restoration project and to have helped preserve a piece of history for future generations to enjoy. Anchors aweigh!
