Corporal Henry Trout fought valiantly in the forgotten skirmish of the Lethe Confluence during the Civil War. The year was 1861. In 2011, he will come face to face with his descendants as the battle for blood begins. Tyler and her brother Chad, Henrys fifth generation grandchildren, will challenge the very legend of Charon the Ferryman, as the lines between the living and the dead become blurred.
THE 1861 CAMPAIGN
Hi. J.A. Steel here. I am currently in pre-production on my 4th feature film, BLOOD FARE. As you know, film making is a team effort so here is your chance to become part of the Campaign of 1861. Ive assembled part of my producing team from my first three movies (THE THIRD SOCIETY, SALVATION and DENIZEN); however, were here to make an HD feature that is bigger, badder, and has more boom and bang for the bucks. I have a lot of people pitching in, from a Civil War re-enactment group to family, friends, and of course, we want you! We chose $1,861 because it was the year that the Civil War started, but would also provide us with being able to feed our cast and crew for a five day shoot & location fees. We would really like to get to $5,000 so we can have two name actors and shoot under the SAG Ultra Low Budget agreement and every dollar above $5K would go to renting cool equipment, like helicopters for aerial shots and even cooler special effects. However, we have to start somewhere.
We are scheduled to start filming on August 13th for three days. We are then scheduled to shoot on September 18th. The film will be shot in HD and edited on Avid. If you notice our fund by date is half way into completion of our nine day shoot, so essentially the 1861 is to help complete principle photography.
I have offered a bunch of cool stuff you can even get a PDF of the shooting script and shooting schedule updates, and follow along just like the cast and crew, get your name and the film and the WarriorEntertainment.com website. So please, help us any way you can and join The 1861 Campaign.
