How to get soldiers for WW2 short film?
I'm creating a 30-minute long short film on WW2. I have a set, and pyrotechnics, but I have no actors, or costumes. I preferably don't want to spend money on costumes for every actor, since there will be lots of extras being shot down/ blown up/ etc. I've been researching for about a month now, and all the costumes that look decent, cost an upwards of $400. And even if I buy the costumes, I will still need actors, guns, and footwear. I'm thinking about asking a reenactment unit to help film since they will have everything, but they're are no units where I live. What should I do?
