    My name is Sarit Laschinsky, and I am with the film production company Lou Reda Productions.

    Since 1983, Lou Reda Productions has worked hard to preserve and share America’s military history through film. The company has been a longtime collaborator with networks including the History Channel and National Geographic, producing high-quality, non-fiction programming.

    Lou Reda Productions also maintains the Reda Archives, one of the largest privately owned film archives in the country, with a mission to accumulate, transfer, preserve, and restore footage of the nation’s history.

    Currently, we are looking for 8mm and 16mm film of the Vietnam War, particularly footage shot by soldiers or individuals in-theater. We are also interested in collecting Vietnam War-era audio letters, as well as period footage from the 1950s-1970s highlighting the home front and the average “day in the life of an American,” such as holiday celebrations, sporting events, and general Americana.

    If you are interested in contributing footage for preservation, we will clean and digitize the material into high-definition video before returning your original footage along with a DVD copy for easy viewing. You will be asked to sign a release form to allow for use of the footage in the future.

    Additionally, we would kindly like to ask that you share our footage call – via your website, social media platforms, or email – with your organization’s members and veterans who may have film they would be willing to share and have preserved.

    If you have any additional questions or would like further information, please contact Lou Reda Productions directly at scott@redafilms.com. To learn more about Lou Reda Productions, please visit http://www.redafilms.com.

    We hope you will be interested in helping us preserve America’s historical footage and make it accessible for future generations.

    Best regards,

    Sarit Laschinsky
    Lou Reda Productions
