WAMEGO: ULTIMATUM is the super-juicy tell-all making-of feature documentary (and the third installment of the award-winning WAMEGO trilogy) exposing tips, tricks and secrets how Steve Balderson's critically acclaimed and award-winning film WATCH OUT came to life -- from script to distribution. And most importantly, it shows you how to make your own movie. On your own terms.
"When we began making films DIY-style, people in the film 'establishment' made fun and laughed at us. So everything we did was documented to show that when we were ultimately successful, aspiring filmmakers and artists everywhere could learn how to do it themselves."
- Steve Balderson
Follow a year-in-the-life of director Steve Balderson and actors Matt Riddlehoover, Peter Stickles, Jeff Dylan Graham, Starina Johnson, Gaea Gaddy, Thashana McQueen, Timmy Red, Joseph Suglia, and the entire cast/crew of WATCH OUT, as they prove once and for all that "you don’t need to live in or anywhere near Hollywood to make movies. Places like Wamego, Kansas work just fine." (Film Threat)
"FIVE STARS. Perfect! If you’re an aspiring filmmaker, you’d be a complete fool not to watch ‘The Wamego Ultimatum’, as well as the other docs in this trilogy.”
- FILM THREAT
"WAMEGO: ULTIMATUM is much, much more than a Making Of. There is no doubt in my mind that every independent film-maker should watch all three of the WAMEGO films. Every film-making class should show these movies to its students... They show you why you should make films."
- MJ SImpson, UK
"Good economic times or bad times, Steve’s advice will work for the aspiring filmmakers out there.”
- Obscure Horror
Steve Balderson “makes Stanley Kubrick seem hands off … doesn’t have that egotistical, self-important, self-aggrandizing, douchebag, misanthrope, sociopath, Imperial attitude that a lot of directors have.”
- Jeremy Knox, FILM THREAT
"Essential viewing for any aspiring filmmaker!”
