Obersalzberg video thread - By BEGAFILM

Post by BEGAFILM » 01 Mar 2020 21:59

Hello dear A.H.F.,

we, BEGAFILM (father and son company), have decided to open our Archive to you!

My father professionally produced documentaries about the 3rd reich back in the 80s and 90s for his own company called BEGAFILM, and released some of his finished projects on VHS/later DVD to public.
He spent a big part of his life searching for information, pictures and footage that is related to the history of Berchtesgaden, the Obersalzberg, the Kehlsteinhaus, the Platterhof and everything else what is in our area, which could fit in to create his documentaries.

Things happened, and in the late 90s everything came pretty much to a halt (Kids and building and stuff) and since then the vast majority of his footage remained unused in our archive, until now. I have talked to him and he agreed to digitize everything and upload it to youtube. We want to save it from destruction, as everything is only on old film formats and we want to make people watch it again.

We have everything, from unreleased Interviews with contemporary witnesses, over original footage from the washington archives which was thaught to be lost, over to our own videos from the insides of all the bunkers on Obersalzberg and in Berchtesgaden which has actually never been shown, and much much more.
100s of hours of unedited raw material is waiting to be digitized, edited and uploaded to youtube, to be watched by everyone who is interested.

However, digitizing is a lot of work and expensive, so we would like to try to get a little money back with youtube monetarisation once we have enough subscribers. (We have only 350 right now and you need at least 1000 to monetize a video, so feel free to leave a sub. It would help us a lot!)
We have also created a Patreon page where you can support us if you want. We guarantee your donations will go to 100% into the proccess of digitizing, editing and the upload of new videos.
Here is our page: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=30465076


Here is our first upload from a couple of weeks ago, which is in ENGLISH language, and shows the occupation of Berchtesgaden and Obersalzberg by the legendary 101st airborne division:

Today I have for you the complete uncut, unedited, mostly unreleased tour through the Berghof Bunker on Obersalzberg of which I showed you a preview a couple of days ago. This was only used partly in one of our documentaries and has never been released elsewhere:

Please enjoy, more will follow soon!

Hi,

we just finished uploading our next documentary. This time you get our "Projekt Kehlstein - Historischer Rückblick auf Hitlers Teehaus" - in German language.
Here is the Link:
https://youtu.be/0xcozZ7kMC4

Tomorrow or the day after we will upload the same video with English audio for you guys. We just need some more time for editing.
This is BY FAR the BEST documentary about the Kehlstein that exists. If you find anything on the same level please gimme a note.

Thanks for your support,

Hey Guys,

we just uploaded our RAW material of Platterhof (Hotel General Walker) on Obersalzberg. It shows the last visit through Platterhof in 2001.
We plan to create a full fledged documentary about Platterhof at some point in the future.

Here is the Video:

Have fun watching and stay safe at home during this crysis!

Greets,

Thanks, BEGAFILM for all your effort. These films are fantastic!

What I find it really interesting, is to see all those fellows in the film walking past a completely intact mantle around that Kehlsteinhaus fireplace. :o

It's EXCITING to see these films, especially after 80 years of their absence! Thanks so much for adding this new dimension to our studies and to our hobby!!

Hi,

good to hear that you like it!

Today we uploaded a new Video. Its a short Interview with Herbert Doehring, administrator of Hitlers Berghof on Obersalzberg (German language only so far but we will provide a translation in a couple of weeks after the Corona crysis).

Here you go: https://youtu.be/EIp2qo1hDDo

Stay at home!
