A team of acclaimed filmmakers, photographers, and storytellers are spearheading “Shooting The President”, a 90 minute documentary motion picture, intended for all audiences that will be a one of a kind major documentary telling a unique presidential political story like never before.
This film will be promoted to mainstream audiences based on its factual and dramatic content. In addition, the Picture will be marketed heavily to interested grassroots audiences that identify themselves strongly with conservative political affiliations and strong faith and family values based on the Tea Party and evangelical movements. It will also be marketed to politically liberal audiences based on their curiosity how the opposition is operating.
Telling the story is Iowa Prezography photographer Dave Davidson. Directing is Judd Saul, an award-winning director and activist, whose documentary “Frag” changed the professional video gaming industry. Producing is author, speaker and nationally syndicated radio talk show host Craig Bergman, producer of UnFair: Exposing the IRS. Craig is a veteran campaigner who brings to the project his experience and knowledge from dozens of major political campaigns.
The Picture is being produced for straight to DVD distribution, followed by television exhibition and home video sales, in the United States and abroad. Principle production began in September, 2013, with post production to follow immediately after a two month filming schedule.
