IndieGoGo – Heroes of Bragg Documentary

Monday, December 21st, 2015

FAYETTEVILLE, NC – December 18, 2015 – A new documentary film project was launched on IndieGoGo entitled, “Heroes of Bragg” that hopes to shine a light on soldiers who call Fort Bragg home.

“I’ve lived in Fayetteville now for close to ten years and in that time I’ve met so many unique individuals that it’s hard to keep track,” said film maker, Steve Sharp. “The one that stands out the most, happened not very long ago. I was with my daughter who is disabled and this soldier walks up to her and gets down on one knee while talking to her. He introduces himself and carries on a short conversation and during this time I was just so impressed…… And stunned. It wasn’t long after that, word came out that he was killed. I had only been around him maybe two or three times but I cried like I had known him twenty years or more. That’s when the idea started. Beit special forces, or front line infantry, these guys have some of the most amazing stories to tell and I want to help them tell it.”

Sharp, 42, hopes to raise a minimum of $10,000 to find the project. With this money, he plans on hiring a small, but experienced crew, to bring the project to life and give it the best chance for success. “I know ten-grand might seem low and the reality of it all is yes… It is low,” he explains. “My first go around with documentary film making I was so untrusting of a few of the production companies here that I made the HUGE mistake of going it alone. I had a goal of $10,000 but raised $17,000. Do I hope lighting strikes twice? Absolutely. I hope lighting, turns into a big bomb, and I have a budget that I need to hire someone to manage! If I could raise enough to hire someone like Gary Sinise or Mike Rowe to narrate it…. Wow. There has been so many films made in North Carolina over the past several years. This state is loaded with highly experienced people that know the ins and outs of film making so the more funding that is raised the better. I’m shooting for the moon here. ”

The hope is to find soldiers from different eras going as far back as possible who have served while stationed at Fort Bragg. Ideally, Steve explains that he would love to find someone who served in World War 2, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and the current War on Terror.

“To be able to sit down with soldiers from each of these eras and get their story would be amazing. I want to know about their lives before they decided to serve…. I want to explore their motivations for wanting to serve and hopefully get some good stories among it all,” he explains. “I’ve talked to a few soldiers I know, and all are eager to tell their story. Some won’t be able to because of their affiliation with various units but others are free and clear. Each person has their own motivation so variety is key. That’s why I’d love to find soldiers from different eras. “ He goes on, “There have been many documentary films made about soldiers and their experiences. To date, I don’t know of any that focuses exclusively on the Fort Bragg community. I want to change that.”

‘SALT – A Safe Gun For A Safe Home’ On Indiegogo

Saturday, October 31st, 2015


SALT is a project on Indiegogo for a non-lethal home defense weapon. Similar to a gas-powered airsoft pistol or paintball marker, SALT utilizes compressed air and fires pellets filled with a proprietary irritant designed to temporarily disable any would-be assailants. The rounds, which travel at 320 feet per second, are designed to produce a cloud of irritant 4 to 5 feet in diameter. Also, it features an underbarrel rail, so there’s always the option to attach a laser or light.

Gadget Striker Control Device On Indiegogo

Friday, July 17th, 2015


The Gadget Striker Control Device is a drop-in part for striker-fired pistols designed to provide an added level of safety when holstering the weapon. The Gadget replaces the standard slide plate on the back of Glock pistols. When thumb pressure is applied to the Gadget it blocks the striker, blocking the trigger bar and preventing the trigger from being pulled.

The Gadget was inspired by the standard procedure of applying pressure on hammer-fired guns when holstering them. However, the Gadget is completely passive, and doesn’t interfere with the action of the pistol unless acted upon. Additionally, in the event Gadget becomes inoperable, the inner slide plate remains in place, which will allow the pistol to continue to function even if the Gadget doesn’t.

To see how the Gadget works, check out the video below:

An onboard LCD clock displays both the time and battery level, USB ports allow for a method to charge mobile devices, and built-in Bluetooh speakers allow for uses to hook up their music players, or project sound for other purposes.

Coolbox handles

On the hardware side, the Coolbox has dual handles, as well as wheels. A whiteboard comes with the Coolbox, mountable on the inside lid. For those who carry a tablet around, the Coolbox has dual position cradles for users to mount them to the box.
