This upcoming feature film, "The Rise Of The Two-Thousand Sons," is an epic drama-war-action film inspired by a legend of the Iroquois and other tribes. This Indigenous story takes place circa 3000 BC in North America.
The ancient legend describes a North American tribe that is plagued for years with war and bloodshed. The tribe is torn apart when the favored son of an unconquerable warlord (Orthon) has a spiritual awakening adopting the ways of peace. Meanwhile (Rammeon), his older brother filled with rage and anger hunts down all those who dare to follow his younger brother adapting The Great Law of Peace as their new way of life.
(Deerthean), unites several tribes for peace. In an act of ultimate bravery the people of Deerthean bury their weapons of war deep in the earth, each of their warriors swearing an oath to abide by "The Great Law of Peace."
A brother’s betrayal and dark forces conspiring for dominance and power are just the beginning of this indigenous story which speaks from the dust with a powerful message of peace for today's America and the world. This PG-13 rated film has an Avatar meets 300 and Braveheart “against all odds” warrior story feel, with "The Revenant" style cinematic approach.

Our 20K stretch goal=
With this stretch goal we will produce the children's book entitled "The 2000th Warrior." Plus+ an animated short film bringing to life the books characters!
This goal provides our project with the resources to produce a studio stumping, fan loving bombastic animated digital short film with amazing visual storytelling.

Our 30k stretch goal=
All above goals will be produced by our talented team plus+ actual live video footage will be added of the exact locations where the ancient Iroquois buried their weapons and adopted, "The Great Law of Peace." We will bring Mother Earth and Father Sky to life as characters in our story!
Our animated digital short film with the amazing score and professional voice over actors will be coupled with with actual live landscape footage of important visual characters in the film short showcasing Mother Earth and Father Sky. All live shots will be on the Iroquois lands where their ancestors buried their physical weapons for peace. This footage will add texture, depth and vision to the short film showing the targeted A list Talent, Directors, and potential film partners the stunning visuals of the exact locations we anticipate shooting the feature film on!
Our 100k stretch goal=
This goal replaces and trumps all prior goals except for the production of our children's book, "The 2000th Warrior." In addition to create our peace inspiring children's book we will have the resources to produce a full blown short film on location in NY with a talented producer/ director and live actors!
We will fly to New York with cast and crew to the tribal lands of the Iroquois where their ancestors lived and get busy filming our live short film! This beautiful written and directed full blown live action proof of concept short film is our best chance of showcasing our exact vision and attracting the very best A list talent for our feature film.
Our 300k streach goal=
This goal trumps all others! With this goal reached we will not only have the resources to complete our children's book but also be able to commission a top Hollywood A list writer.

Risks and challenges
There are many risks and unique challenges when filmmakers set out to shoot and deliver a well produced and executed finished product.
We believe the best way to navigate the unforeseen risks of this project comes down to a few simple things. Proper planing, budgeting, teamwork and an unwavering desire to tell a great story!
We have carefully and patiently worked now for 10 years assembling the best team of industry pros to tell this particular story.
Our film partner and producer Gerald Molen has worked with some of the most talented director/producers of our decade including Steven Spielberg where he received a academy award for producing the highly acclaimed film Schindler's List.
We feel confident that the Rise of The 2000 Sons project will land safely at the intersection where extreme passion for superior storytelling meets A list expertise.
Our future success is not promised however our team of pros with ten years of research and development under our belts are confident you will be pleased with the final product as we continue to work our way towards the final goal of producing the greatest American Indigenous action/ war/ drama feature film ever created!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
