About

299 Days is a ten-book series written by government insider Glen Tate. He has a front row seat to the corruption in government, and based this story on his first-hand observations of why a collapse is coming and how it will unfold. The book series, published by Prepper Press, has been very well received by both "preppers" and the general population. To date, over 70,000 copies have been purchased.

If we reach our $350,000 goal (plus the $50,000 in DVD/BluRay pre-sale pledges we've already received for Movie 1), our plan is to complete the first movie, and then leverage it to raise the funds for the 2nd & 3rd film. However, if we were to exceed our goal, and raise closer to $1,000,000, we would be able to shoot all three films simultaneously.

To add-on to your 299 Days Kickstarter pledge, follow these steps:

1 - Go to the Manage Your Pledge Button. If you have not pledged yet it will say Back this Project.

2 - Increase your pledge in the Pledge Amount box by the total of the add-ons you want to add.

3 - Do not change the tier you are currently pledged at, unless you also want to change it while you are on this screen. You will then need to add the total of your add-ons onto the amount of the new tier you chose.

If we reach our goal, you will receive a survey that will ask you to explain how you would like the add-on money assigned, the items wanted, the size of tee-shirts, etc.

Notes: All add-ons require a base pledge to be at the $20 tier and above. Shipping/handling is included for backers in the US.

Risks and challenges

Our production team has completed over 70 feature-length motion pictures. There are risks and challenges that need to be overcome in every production; that's what filmmaking is. The unique challenge for this series is having to complete each film before we begin production on the next. Actor availability, and having to return to locations over and over, instead of being able to "shoot out" each location. This greatly increases the cost of each movie. We have estimated the cost of shooting each two-hour film this way to be $400,000. However, if we could shoot all three films simultaneously, we could complete each movie much less. There are also many one-time expenses that must be covered before shooting can begin. Those expenses can be amortized out over the completed trilogy.
