Columbia, SC, March 3, 2014 – Panteao Pictures announces the launch of an IndieGoGo crowd-funding campaign for the upcoming independent film, Alexander’s Bridge.
Alexander’s Bridge is a science fiction/action film about an elite team of US Army Delta Force Operators accidentally sent back 150 years to the middle of the Civil War. Finding themselves where a battle is about to take place and where thousands of Federal and Confederate soldiers will be killed or wounded, they must decide what to do. Can they make a difference? Who will they try to help? Will they get back home?
Alexander’s Bridge is not a film with a political agenda. It portrays both sides of the battle in a neutral a manner. It is a story about the soldiers themselves having to work together, similar to Band of Brothers.
Filming of key footage for Alexander’s Bridge was already completed during the recent 150th anniversary reenactment of the Battle of Chickamauga where thousands of reenactors took to the field. To add to the quality of the production, Panteao chose to film Alexander’s Bridge in digital 4K resolution, a much higher video quality over films shot in HD or 2K resolution. Behind the scenes footage is also being shot while the movie is made with interviews with the cast, crew, and reenactors.
Panteao has gone to great lengths to keep the level of authenticity of the film as high as possible by working closely with retired military personnel and Civil War reenactors. In addition to subject matter experts, companies like TNVC, MSA, Velocity Systems, Safariland, Hatch, Twin Industries Water Transfer, Henry Repeating Arms, EOTech, Viking Tactics, Tango Down, Surefire, Nightforce, Gerber, Remington, Advanced Armament, Smith & Wesson, Winkler Knives, SOD, SUUNTO, and Salomon have all stepped up to help Panteao with making sure the gear used in the film is spot on in accuracy.
Panteao has been self-funding Alexander’s Bridge, already having filmed key scenes for the movie and is commencing the remainder of filming in September. In an effort to not cut corners or compromise on the quality of the film, Panteao has turned to crowd-funding via IndieGoGo in order to raise additional funds for the project. Every penny raised from the campaign will be spent on the production of the film. Supporters of the campaign will receive items ranging from PDF copies of the script to movie t-shirts, posters, challenge coins, DVD of the movie, and even a chance to visit the set and be in the film.
