War Within:

War Within is a short Civil War film written by Doug Graves. It follows two Union soldiers, William and John. William is a mid level officer who is true to defeating the Rebels. John is an Irish immigrant who was drafted shortly after he arrived in the states. The two are seperated from their companywhen they are over run by Confederate soldiers. The film not only has some awesome battle scenes but is character driven. It focuses on loyalty and people's place in the world.

Who We Are:

We're a group of filmmakers trying to make our dream come true. Some of us have gone to film school, some of us are still in high school.

How We'll Spend it:

The money we raise will cover all aspects of the production from start to finish. Everything from food to insurance to rentals.

Here's a basic rundown of the costs:

  • Production insurance
  • Rentals
  • Paying actors and crew
  • Food
  • Transportation
  • Post production
  • Distribution
  • Film festival fees

Even if we don't reach our goal of 2,000 dollars we will still make this film happen. Every dollar counts, so please donate!

If you do decided to donate we have some awesome rewards. Everything from a pre release download of the film to Executive Producer credit.

Why You Should Pledge:

We want to create something you'll want to watch, we can't do that without you. Our director and writer made a Civil War shortin the past, on a shoestring budget, so they are no stranger to the concept. We've been making films for years without any real monetary backing. Funding doesn't make a good film but it definitely helps. 2,000 dollars goes along way.

When it's Happening:

We start shooting in mid April and will end mid May. The film has an expected release date of sometime in June.

If You Can't Donate:

Share the project! Let people know about the film, share it on Facebook, Twitter, maybe even knock on your neighbors door. Every pledge, no matter the size, really does make a difference.
