We will be shooting for the entire month of June in and around Kentucky—for the most part in Owensboro, Ky, Madisonville, Ky and at various country-side locations everywhere in between.  We have permission to shoot at Forest's First 20th Annual Battle of Sacramento ( http://http://battleofsac.com/ ) reenactment as well as a beautiful house that was built to be a period recreation of an American Civil-War homestead.  We couldn't be more excited!!

Whether you're a history buff, a film buff, a Gear Junkie or just an extraordinary citizen, we want you to get involved and be as excited about this project as we are. 

The major plot points in this film are set, but the subtleties, the nuances—they are still open to molding and influence.  Donor's from $100 and up get in on the action and get in on Group Discussions of the running script that will be active until the last day of shooting as well as private links to video dailies of whats being shot. 

Where's the money going?  The money we collect will provide us with all things CIVIL WAR.  Costume rental, prop creation, and getting us to the Civil War reenactments that we have been so blessed to gain access to. 

Anyone who contributes $5 or more gets a poster mailed to them immediately.  If you want a poster, be sure to let us know which one:
