Brothers in Arms: The Movie
We want to make our Brothers in Arms film... We have tried several times to pitch our film to a big Hollywood studio. Working with studios is important to get film funded but it comes with a lot of give on our part, which could take away the integrity of the story as well. We wanted to avoid all that and make the best possible movie we can while staying true to the story we have written.
Luckily, we found the nice people at GoGetFunding (applause) which have brought us one step closer to being able to create and deliver this amazing project to our current and future fans by giving us the ability to have our project funded.
Because we’re making a smaller movie without a big studio playing big brother and undermining every step we take, we can finish it for fraction of the cost, in a lot less time which will also give us the ability to get the final product out to our fans a lot quicker.
The screenplay is based on a story written by Gerard Lima.
What we are doing
The easiest way to answer that is by saying, we are raising money for our film. We are making this film with the help and assistance of people who support and wish to see the final product. We are hoping to raise $200,000 and hopefully more in time to have this film in post-production by the end of 2013 early 2014 in order to be able to start entering it into different Film Festivals.
Why we are doing it
We are just a couple of friend who decided to take a chance and hoping to realize our dreams. We know this is possible. Most importantly, we know that we have an amazing story and this is going to be an incredible film. We considered several ways to finance this project but then we started to think … investors back out, we would be forced to put the film on hold, then I had people tell me; “Banks and nobody else, we will fund this movie since you are not a big name Hollywood writer or producer.” That is why we as will you join us and help us make this film happen?
The screenplay follows two childhood friends whom enlist in the Army together. It follows the story Mike and James; as they tackle Basic Training, then Ranger School all the way to the day they are deployed to War.
James's has a younger sister Ellen who is engaged to Mike.
On the same day Mike gets engaged to Ellen they are deployed war. While at war, James meets a female soldier while by the name of Katie where the two begin a relationship.
During a trip out the base the convoy Mike and James were in gets ambushed; the unit takes a big hit several soldiers are injured and some are killed in action. This causes Mike to raises up as a leader and takes charge of his unit.
Months after the ambushed Mike and James are informed that several soldiers survived from the Intel they have received; they go off on a search and rescue mission. The mission does not go as planned causing Mike to feel responsible for the outcome of it.
Once they return home Mike does not feel like he deserves to be looked at as a war hero and struggles to deal with the outcome of the search and rescue mission and wished he had done more to prevent the casualties his unit endured.
A lot more takes place in this film we could not give away everything that happens in detail since it could potentially ruin the story for you.
