Last Stand is a historical drama about a tiny nations peaceful resistance to Moscow's attempt to crush their independence.

This story transcends beyond these historical events because we are creating a film which centers on a personal relationship between two Lithuanian-American characters who find themselves caught in the middle of these tragic events.

I am on Kickstarter because my team and I need to start a development fund.  This fund will provide a downpayment for our screenwriter to get started as well as put our historical consultant on retainer.  There are practical costs in setting up contracts and reaching out to talent once the script is completed.

Once we have the script ready in October we can apply for government funding in Europe as well as approach active film investors.  Active investors would not consider a film until there is a script so I am reaching out to you to get that initial fund going which will start the process.  As the saying goes... "A 10,000 mile journey starts with the first step."

Thank you for your support at the very beginning of this journey.

Risks and challenges

There are obvious risks in supporting a film and I am fully aware of that. The good news is that this is my second film and my second Kickstarter campaign. Both the campaign and the film were successful which has encouraged me to do this again.

I have assembled a great team of accomplished producers who have released many films and will help me along the way to ensure this film will be completed.

It is my goal to complete this film and to do it well and I pledge to not stop until that goal is met.
