New Survival Video Series From Panteao – Make Ready To Survive

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

I am super stoked about this new series of videos. They have lined up some serious talent and each title will give you a variety of expert points of view on the subject at hand.

Columbia, SC, October 22, 2014 – Panteao Productions is proud to announce the upcoming launch of the Make Ready to Survive instructional video series. This line of instructional videos is a departure for Panteao from the firearms training videos the company is known for producing.

“This was a pretty large undertaking for us. In order to get the shots we needed, our crew filmed on location in the everglades of FL, the back country of Ohio, the mountains of Colorado, and eastern Texas. Five instructors were selected to teach the series based on their background and life experiences. Each brought something different to the table and combined makes for one heck of a learning experience,” said John Tormey, Director of the Make Ready to Survive Series.

Fernando Coelho, president of Panteao Productions, added, “We received a tremendous amount of support from manufacturers and suppliers when we told them about the survival series. It was with their help that we were able to make this series possible. We originally thought we would have content for three videos. When we were finished filming we ended up with thirteen different titles in the series.”

Instead of reality show entertainment like the current television shows on prepping and doomsday survival, the Make Ready to Survive videos are a true tutorial to help you and your family. Whether you live in the heart of the city, on the outskirts in a quiet neighborhood, or out on a farm, the Make Ready to Survive videos show you techniques that are critical for survival, review gear and supplies to have on hand, and all aspects of proper planning. Most importantly, the videos will bring you piece of mind.

The instructors in the series include former US Army Delta Operator Paul Howe, Dave Canterbury from the Pathfinder Self Reliance School, US Army Special Forces Green Beret Kyle Harth, disaster preparedness consultant and author Jim Cobb, and NE MacDougald, who started his career in Vietnam with the 519th Military Intelligence Bn (MACV), and today is an author and consultant.

The video series will debut both on DVD and HD streaming video in December with three titles from the series. Then additional titles will be released each month from January through April of 2015. More info on the survival series can be found on the Panteao website at:

Behind-The-Scenes Look: New Glock G41 Commercial

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Glock approached Atlanta-based production company Modest to produce a spot for their G41 pistol. CraterDust, Glock’s creative agency, came up with a concept involving a Special Forces team doing a takedown of a hijacked plane on the tarmac. This inspired director Matthew Pope to utilize a single real-time shot to put the viewer in the middle of the action.

A particular scene called for a shot that started on a crane 30-feet above two parked SUVs and ended 300-yards away at the moment the plane was breached. To achieve this, Pope worked with Director of Photography Matthew Rogers and Special Effects Coordinator Drew Kimball to coordinate a shot that utilized pulleys, a Movi rig, handing off a RED Epic camera from one moving vehicle to another, and half a dozen camera operators.

    Special Forces Association Revokes “Dual Survival” Star Joe Teti’s Membership

    Thursday, October 2nd, 2014


    SSD received word earlier today that the Special Forces Association has revoked the membership of Joe Teti. The star of Discovery Channel’s “Dual Survival” served in the US Marine Corps as well as in the Army National Guard’s 19th SFG(A).

    This isn’t something that is taken lightly. Revocation of membership has only happened 10 times in the Association’s history. It is our understanding that Teti’s membership was revoked pursuant to Paragraph VII.c. of the SFA’s constitution. His SFA membership cannot be reinstated.


    Mr Teti’s background has long been a point of contention. There are numerous websites that detail the inconsistencies surrounding his service record and public claims. We welcome SSD readers to provide relevant links in the comments.

    “AK vs AR”: The Musical

    Wednesday, October 1st, 2014


    Ok, so it’s not really a musical, but “AK vs AR” is a magazine. I’m not quite sure how well my favorite internet kerfuffle is going to translate unto the printed page. After all, where will you post your comments regarding your favorite platform? Who will be there to listen to you pontificate on your experience with you favored platform? Let’s face it, a magazine based on everyone’s Internet straw man doesn’t sound like much fun at all. But, there are some cool articles in this special interest publication including a head to head competition with the AK and AR conducted by some very righteous dudes.

    What’s next, “9mm vs .45?”
