Hey guys! :)
 
In 2016, my brother and I started work on a short film set during the American Civil War. Since then, we've come a long way. In 2017, we received permission to shoot our film at a local state park and began the filming process. By the end of the year, we had a first draft put together and started looking for score composers and sound designers. In 2018, we found a score composer for the opening of the film, and found a sound designer for the whole thing. Over the course of the year, we've slowly but surely been working with them. Finally, about a month ago, we sent our final draft of the film to the sound designer to work on. As things stand, we hope to have the short film released before the end of the year!  B) 
 
Our film (called "Remember Me") tracks the experiences of a single Union soldier from Berdan's elite group of sharpshooters. Although the film is set during the iconic battle of Gettysburg, the film takes a look at the much more isolated and personal battles our main character struggles with. It takes more than nerve and grit to survive the day...
 
Anyway, without further ado, I'm pleased to present a short teaser trailer for the upcoming film! Enjoy!  :D

Haha, thanks Butzell! That's why although we set the story in Gettysburg, no actual units or locations are mentioned in the movie. The focus is on the individual soldier. ;)

Its a miniatures wargame.  Very entertaining, but if you simulate one of the larger battles, it can take weeks to complete.  When we lived in Hawaii, my wife and I played a battle out for 3 months, before she ultimately won, damn canister-shot cannons nearly wiped out an entire regiment of mine (She still wont let me forget about that particular game).  Oh, and if you ever do play it, dont attempt to Cav charge a defensive position, very bad news,  and apparently I'm not Custer.

Oooww! Nice trailer!

 

One shot with a muzzle-loader.  What a different world, what a different battle!  Maybe two, then bayonets and butts!  Not to glorify, but to remind. Brave men, brethren to us all! A conflict that gives meaning to the word "conflict".

 

S!
