AN AJ EPYX PRODUCTION
CIVIL WRATH is a gripping western action-drama based on the novel by acclaimed author and filmmaker, John Merenda. Set in the post-Civil War period, the War Commission hires Moses Washington, an African-American bounty hunter from the north, to find Ku Klux Klan member, Benson Krowley. Benson and his Klan killed twelve men while robbing a Union payroll, but Moses lived. He captures Benson and drags him into the desert where a woman finds them near death. The Klan is close they rush to a town, but the Krowleys are lying in wait.
With fundraising through Indiegogo, we intend to produce a 10 minute live action “sizzle reel” which will be an adaptation of a chapter from the Civil Wrath novel entitled “The Confederate.” This is an action-packed sequence in which Moses gets cornered by a band of vicious Confederate soldiers and manages to battle his way out of trouble with some unexpected help. The animated storyboard sequence presented here represents the style of western we intend to film. Once produced, the sizzle reel will be used to attract potential investors for a feature length motion picture adaptation of Civil Wrath. We want this film to capitalize on the current wave of Civil War era films with African-Americans as the protagonists which include such films as DJANGO UNCHAINED and 12 YEARS A SLAVE.
The production is looking to shoot during the first week of February 2014 on location in Inverness, FL. With your help, contributions will provide for our Florida-based crew, meals, location rental, makeup, rentals for horses from the Blue Berrie Riding Academy, prop guns, and western costumes. The project will be directed by Andre´ Joseph (AJ Epyx Productions’ Priceless, Night Stream) and the book’s author John Merenda. Mr. Joseph will also star as Moses Washington and will co-star Joseph Merenda.
Should we raise more than our minimum goal of $1800, the additional contributions will be put toward editing, color correction, and musical scoring. The rewards offered based on your level of contribution are posted on the right side of this page. If you are unable to contribute, but wish to help, you can spread the word to your friends and family about our campaign right here on Indiegogo by sharing this page on all social networks. Any contribution you can provide will be greatly appreciated!
